Consultant Robin DiAngelo runs diversity training workshops and sees many participants get defensive. She’s trying to help people see that their actions may be racist even without malicious intent – that they may harbor biases even if their “best friend is black.” DiAngelo pleads for an open mind in assessing one’s own biases and humility in understanding other people’s perspectives. getAbstract recommends DiAngelo’s thought-provoking essay to white people who strongly feel they’re not racist and to HR managers who are organizing diversity trainings.

"She’s trying to help people see that their actions may be racist even without malicious intent"
I love when they make it look like they are trying so hard to make the ignorant blind guy understand. but who says where the line is? i mean if you constructively critic someone because you really have a good arguments, but the person has another background than a white male, its racist, right? i mean, otherwise others have to help me understand? right?
and i think the whole text is fully racist against white people...
