Summary, etc.:
DiAngelo identifies many common white racial patterns and breaks down how well-intentioned white people unknowingly perpetuate racial harm. She explains how spiritual white progressives seek community by co-opting Indigenous and other groups' rituals create separation, not connection. Challenging he ideology of individualism, DiAngelo explains why it is OK to generalize about white people, and she demonstrates how white people who experience other oppressions still benefit from systemic racism. -- adapted from jacket.
