White Fragility Digest #12: 25 May 2018

Welcome to another VIDEO FRIDAY, everybody!

On Fridays The Digest is dedicated to spreading good information. I'm presenting some more videos which feature White Fragility as the topic, starting out with Dr. Robin DiAngelo. I hope that you all will take some time over the weekend to watch these fascinating and informative videos.

This Friday's edition will consist of an online video conferencing call between Dr. DiAngelo and two clergy members that's entitled: "White Fragility: Robin DiAngelo on White Liberals Protecting Racism"

And I'm also present a very important video essay by Black Intellectual that's entitled, "White Fragility, Social Dominance Theory, and Black Population Control." Both are about an hour long and, if you can, over the course of the weekend check them out I'm sure that you'll appreciate the insight that each one provides.

Thanks very much for supporting The Digest and please have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.

"White people in North America live in a social environment that protects and insulates them from race-based stress. This insulated environment of racial protection builds white expectations for racial comfort while at the same time lowering the ability to tolerate racial stress, leading to what I refer to as White Fragility. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium."

The next Digest will be published on Monday.

"Hey, Girl..."


"Fancy some hardware?"

Hey, Donald...

Maybe he’s just not that into you? Ever think of that?

What am I saying? Trump never thinks, all he’s good for is a knee jerk reaction.

Ghosted by a dictatorial regime... HA! You really do see something new every day.

Can we label him a diplomatic incel now?

White Guy Tries To Mansplain MLK’s ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech To MLK’s Own Daughter

https://twitter.com/Mr_Scorpio/status/999477267049992192

LINDSEY ROBERTSON

It’s hard to imagine the gall it takes to explain Martin Luther King Jr. to his own daughter, but a handful of white guys on Twitter recently attempted to do just that.

It all began when comedian Josh Denny met with some serious Twitter backlash when he claimed that “straight, white male” is the new “N-word.” (A claim which preposterously and conveniently ignores the country’s history of white male privilege.)

Denny dug into his claims, asserting that the term was now used as a way to shut down a person’s opinions based on their “label” — which, Denny says, is a kind of “racism.”



Denny’s assertion was quickly shut down when MLK’s own daughter, Bernice King, chimed in to remind Denny that there is actually a very distinct difference between the racism her father fought against and the perceived oppression currently being experienced by “straight, white males.”
