Reading “White Fragility’

So I bought the book. I had to as I’m curious about the content. I mean I’m white as some would call it. To look at me you see the Italian traits, some Mediterranean traits and the Neanderthal.

I’m not your typical white guy either. I’ve said it in the past the range of human coloration to me is beautiful. But I try to understand the mindset of my fellow humans. It’s the same with how I used voter data to determine roughly 1/3 of the electorate is in more modern terms bat shit crazy. Just reading the foreword of the book and it discusses the social construct of whiteness.

It’s interesting – when I was talking to my neighbor I mentioned put me in the sun for about 15-20 minutes a day in spring/summer and I asked what color he thought I turned. He said red, i told him I turn brown. You can definitely tell I’m not a Lilly white guy.

As I read I’ll post snippets of the book. Should be interesting.
