White Fragility
White Fragility Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism By DiAngelo, Robin J Book - 2018

There are many ways that this book can be criticized (thus demonstrating the Kafkaesque trap of white fragility), but the chief one is that it reads more like a religious tract than a sociological text, with its constant preaching of the doctrine of the Original Sin of whiteness, for which there is no possibility of full redemption or absolution. The best white people can do is to strive to be "less white". The author seems to hate herself for her own whiteness and projects that self-loathing onto the white reader. If you're looking for solutions to the problem of racism, you won't find them in this book.
