An Ivy League Linguistics professor appeared on TV with leftist Bill Maher on Saturday and talked about a divisive movement called White Fragility, devised by White Liberal women described and by Maher as being “condescending” to Black Americans.
“I am Black and I would like that to make sense. White Fragility basically says that Blacks are hothouse flowers and everyone needs to be talking down to me,” John McWhorter told Maher.
“The only need for this book is keeping tales from being wobbly. This book helps Blacks take on the victim mentality. This book makes Blacks look like silly babies. I have been Black for 55 years and I know how Blacks feel. This book should be read as literature and not scholarship. And we are told that we have to accept it. I can tell you that Blacks do not think of ourselves as pathetic, like that book says we are,” McWhorter said.
White Fragility is a book that starts with the premise that White liberal women are accomplished perfectly at everything, and their ways and methods are superior to everyone else’s ways and methods. It is the ultimate Feminist fantasy. They are the superheroes of solving racism, which only they see under every rock and in every crevice, and only they understand, and only they uniquely know how to solve.
Of course, it doesn’t bother any of them that they are the least likely people to have a relationship with a Black person, but that is meaningless because, with their superior thinking skills, they have solved racism and determined it is White people’s fault. And someone should pay those same White liberal women a lot of money to push the book, which will solve racism once and for all.
If only all Americans accepted their superiority, the problem would be fixed once and for all. Remember, the selling point of their White Fragility empire is:
“White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism is a 2018 book written by Robin DiAngelo about race relations in the United States.”
Enter a Black man with a mind of his own. The White Fragility crowd will say that he is, in fact, a racist and not comfortable talking about how racist White people are. He busts their perfect scam, watch:

Reason Magazine wrote recently about McWhorter’s work dispelling “anti-racism”:
If advocates of “wokeness,” “critical race theory,” and “anti-racism” seem to be acting like religious zealots who must crush all heretics, that’s because they are, argued Columbia University linguist John McWhorter at a 2018 debate at the Soho Forum.”
“Anti-racism as currently configured has gone a long way from what used to be considered intelligent and sincere civil rights activism to today [being] a religion,” said McWhorter. “I don’t mean that as a rhetorical thing. It actually is what any naive anthropologist would recognize as a faith.”
The 55-year-old author first explored his idea of anti-racism as “Our Flawed New Religion” in a 2015 essay at The Daily Beast. He’s expanding the concept into a book, due out next year, that he’s serializing on Substack. Tentatively titled The Elect, it lays out his argument about the misguided fervor undergirding the anti-racist movement championed by people such as Robin DiAngelo, Ibram X. Kendi, and Ta-Nehisi Coates.
DeAngelo, the author of White Fragility, is described in her biography as:
“Robin Jeanne DiAngelo is an American author, consultant, and facilitator working in the fields of critical discourse analysis and whiteness studies.”
McWhorter is not the only one to slam the nonsense book. Consider this essay written by liberal David Burke.
“After it was published in 2018, Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility received fawning reviews from The New Yorker and Publishers Weekly on its way to becoming a New York Times bestseller. Well-intentioned white people bought the book in droves, and the titular phrase became ubiquitous, used as a way to explain or attack white people who protested when accused of racism. Now, as more Americans are asking how they can fight racism in response to the appalling deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, White Fragility has seen a resurgence, this time topping the bestseller list.
But while people’s desire for valuable insight about race-related issues is laudable, White Fragility cannot satisfy that need. The book does not offer profound insight into the souls of white people. Rather, White Fragility is religion masquerading as knowledge. DiAngelo’s conception of white fragility isn’t hard-won wisdom. It’s an unprovable and unfalsifiable theory, deceptively framed to convince readers of their own guilt.”
The book is shockingly shallow. It is a good thing that liberals are finally starting to admit it. It was really just a money-making scam by a bunch of egomaniacs.
