Hesse Column Was Welcome
I want to thank Monica Hesse for her column (Aug. 12, “Centuries of male-dominated history brought us here. How do we get everyone to accept that?”) in the Sunday Sun which served as a book review for Robin DiAngelo’s book on “White Fragility.” DiAngelo defines sexism and racism as, “explicit, intentional acts of meanness” which I consider to perfectly describe the problem in our society. This definition does not support microagression and the culture of victimhood. Curiously, DiAngelo rejects her perfect definition and finds ways to blame the innocent. I’m sure it is a most curious book indeed.
