MicroAggressions

"I’m probably such a racist, but a black man dressed as Santa is just wrong."

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.
