MicroAggressions

"Can you move these chairs so I can sit down with my friend and eat?"

“Can you move these chairs so I can sit down with my friend and eat?”

- White woman to me, a black man. I was waiting in line to be seated at a restaurant in Washington DC.

I’m in an ethics class, and the topic of microaggressions came up today. I was astonished to discover that at least half the class believes that “microaggressions aren’t real” because people “are too sensitive and need to grow a thick skin”. The class, including my teacher, proceeded to mock microaggressions for the rest of the period.

I, an Asian girl, was waiting with my mother on line in a New York County Court with a Hispanic family in front of us. A white male that was working there walked past us, completely ignored us and greeted another white male that was on line behind us with “How can I help you, sir?” Keep in mind we were all fluent in English.

We are learning American history in college. We are focused on slavery and the Civil War during the lead up to the 2014 referendum. After the results a white, yes (Brexit) -voting classmate cries that “I was trying to free us from slavery like blacks were in slavery.” This was after we studied several slave narratives which clearly illustrated the horrors that black people had to endure. Several other classmates nag the teacher about “why we don’t sussed like the South did.”

"Let the GIRL go pass."

“Let the GIRL go pass.”

- Said to me (an African American woman over the age of 30) by a young white male (under the age of 30) on the light rail; (on my way home from an Orioles game) when I refused to go under his arm to exit the train and I brought to his attention that he was impeding my passage, after saying “excuse me” numerous times and his refusal to move out of the way.

Yes. Nobel prizes have been shared many times and the peace prize went to an organization, medicins sans frotieres, a few years ago.

Do multiple men get separate prizes?

Thanks for posting the videos Dallas and The Nerd. Both are great. When asked in polls, or censuses what race I am I like to say  I'm Klein. A term named after paleoanthropologist Richard Klein meaning race is so indinguishable that it's meaningless. (sorry I didn't find a good link for the term).

Sick! Sick! Sick! I don't understand how people can hate other people on the grounds of pigmentation. Fucking lunacy!

I saw it, Nerd ... and I wonder if it'll get any coverage on the evening news tonight.  It damned well SHOULD, but that's another matter.

Seriously people, the religionists are now winning!  Vote for Option 3, and keep Ohio from having a election day voting sticker that calls upon God!
