White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo
The author of this book explains that racism is a system of white power and control over black people. This is different from mere prejudice or discrimination. It is a system that is based on an ideology and we live in this system, therefore, by her definition, all white people are racist, however, she does not define racist as someone who intentionally doesn't like people because of race, but rather as unintentional members of a system of racism. The book is enlightening and brings up some very good points.
