MicroAggressions

Teacher: what do they look like? (referring to a picture of Middle Eastern women in hijabs)

Student: Terrorists.
Teacher: I was looking for “religious, traditional, or worried.” But yes, that too. Good, Tyler!

"Yeah, but you’re not that kind of Native."

“Yeah, but you’re not that kind of Native.”

- This has happened more than once.  A person complains about the lazy “Natives” downtown, suggesting they are all a bunch of ‘huffers’ exploiting the system.  I respond by pointing out that I’m Metis (I have pale skin).

I patiently waited after class to ask my professor a question. He then began making sexual comments such as that I made him aware of his age because he could never get with me because I was out of his league. I felt uncomfortable so I left, with my question unanswered. I could not believe that my college professor prioritized his inappropriate comment over my question and ultimately the quality of my education, as I am no longer comfortable going to him for questions.

"CAN YOU HEAR ME?"

“CAN YOU HEAR ME?”

- The “joking” reaction of various friends, coworkers and bosses when I tell them that I’m hearing-impaired and used to have to wear aids. They then tell me “it’s not like it’s a big deal or anything, it’s not like you’re actually deaf”. Makes me feel like my problems don’t matter.

It angers me when people measure my race by the way I talk, dress, and carry myself. It’s as if black women can’t possibly be educated and come from a family with both parents. What sucks the most is that my close friends still say comments like “you’re not really black,” or “but they’re the other kind of black girls.” Can someone please tell me what other black there is?

That youtube thing appeared on Professor Turley's blog the other day and I just facepalmed. That's a very stupid person, and that's that. She isn't oppressing anybody, she's just being dumb.
