Showing Up For Racial Justice

Welcome to the Cincinnati Chapter of SURJ. SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals working to undermine white supremacy by moving white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice.

On White Fragility

  • We need to value Black lives more than white feelings.
  • Black Lives Matter isn’t controversial. It’s misunderstood.
  • White defensiveness maintains the status quo.
  • Race relations will not move forward if white persons remain comfortable.
  • Don’t confuse disagreement with a lack of understanding.
  • “White Fragility is a form of bullying… [taking] advantage of historical and institutional power and control… a power form of white racial control… the sociology of dominance… [is] a means to protect, maintain, and reproduce white supremacy.” (Robin DiAngelo)
