White fragility is so silly and very scary. It has no evident mooring, but is deeply rooted. White ignorance as to racism is insidious, and willful. The evidence of its ugliness is massive, but the refusal to dig into it is lesion, and the opposition to learning about it is legion. It is a pathetic, lethargic, and dangerous amalgamation of fault lines.
White racism and its imperviousness to eradication is why such people as Trump are possible. If we can nurture such a monsterous systemic problem for centuries, creepy, autocrat idiots like Trump can be easily mass produced. Yet, conservatives, and enough Americans in general, do not seem to understand the full gravity of this corrosive, wilful ignorance.
