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.

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.
