“... his phrase for that was, we want to recruit the people who start a sentence by saying, I'm not racist, but. And if they've said that, they're almost there. All we have to do is get them to come a little bit further.”

Everytime white people code switch to relate more to me it reads as racist. They talk in this “haaaay girllllll”, “yooo whaddup DAWWGG” kinda way and it’s weird as fuck.

You’re 8 years old. Your 3rd grade class orders chinese food & your father delivers it. You are so excited to see your pops in school. He’s your hero. But apparently other kids don’t think he’s so cool. They laugh at him and mimic his accent. You don’t want to be Chinese anymore.

Behind every sort-of-woke guy who puts out lukewarm takes on Twitter is the very beautiful and intelligent woman who once spent three hours carefully explaining to him what a microaggression is

This is the same jerk-off expression that's been on the face of every white guy who's ever said "konnichiwa" to me

Activities where people can share the kinds of microaggressions they encounter can help us learn the harmful assumptions we make about others, even with good intentions. Being open minded about microaggressions can help us improve the way we communicate and connect with others.

The first scenario perpetuates a harmful ableist idea that disease and disability are determined by morality. The second scenario perpetuates a harmful idea that you must be an outsider if you don't have the right kind of appearance.

Imagine if every time you spoke about your mother's illness, someone made an assumption that her illness was brought on by her moral character. Imagine if every time you tried to tell someone where you grew up, they made an assumption you weren't born in America.

A platitude like "people get what they deserve" or questions like "no, where are you REALLY from" aren't outright abusive nor that harmful. The harm of an individual microaggression is subthreshold but the harm accumulates when they occur over and over again.

Anything can be a microaggression. If after you told me your mother died of cancer and I said "people get what they deserve", that could be considered a microaggression. The entire definition of a microaggression hinges on its imperceptibility as outright harassment.
