Show Notes

Fan Squiggy and the six women discuss ideas from “White Fragility” by Robin Diangelo. How do we talk to children about racism? Can we get to equality together? What is the role of the bystander? Why has it taken so long to have many shades of ‘nude’ crayons and undergarments? Plus, seeing Sharon Osborne’s white fragility play out on tv!
