EtcetEraThread White fragility and you: An important step in combating racism
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending:) Dismissing discussions on a sensitive subject, Account in junior phase
Only on the most superficial of levels. Realistically, there is only one point of view that will be tolerated in this thread. The problem that people have with the term 'white fragility' seems pretty obvious to me. It eliminates individual agency and conflates individual perspectives with an alleged groupthink ascribed to an entire demographic (and yes, I'm aware that PoC are most often the victims of the same phenomenon). Most frequently, it's used as a trump card to immediately call a halt to any discussion about race and that's fine if all you really want to do is repeat the same talking points ad nauseam amongst yourselves but intellectually, it's completely vapid.
