Amazing: University of California System Defines Racist And Sexist ‘Micro-Aggressions’ to Avoid
The left-wing has really run out of brazen examples of racism, but they need to keep minorities in a state of fear and white people laden with soul-crushing guilt, so they came up with the concept of “micro-aggressions,” which are regular everyday slights to women and persons of color.
Now the University of California system has put out this handy guide to avoid such micro-aggressions:
That’s funny, they had to tell me to shut up, not ask why I was quiet. You can’t tell a black person to be less animated or calm down? Maybe that’s why Mike Brown reached for Darren Wilson’s gun. Aren’t these all actually reinforcing stereotypes of minorities?
These next ones are insane:
I could see how it might be annoying for someone who doesn’t speak other than English to be asked questions about their “native” language, but I’m not offended at all when people ask me how to say stuff in Spanish. Because I speak Spanish. And you cannot even say “America is the land of opportunity”! Apparently that enrages minorities, and makes Native Americans and Latinos stew in their bitter silence while making African Americans more animated and expressive. All of which you can’t point out, racist.
More from the Washington Times:
A report by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign into the topic of “microaggressions” found that the simple task of “walking into or sitting in” a room full of white people can be problematic for minorities.
“Students of color reported feeling uncomfortable and unwelcomed just walking into or sitting in the classroom, especially if they were the only person of color, or one of a few,” said the report, titled “Racial Microaggressions @ University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign,” National Review reported Wednesday.
“People do not necessarily say I do not belong, but I feel as if I do not when I am in a classroom and I am the one non-White person,” said one student in the college’s report, National Review reported.
Many colleges turn to Dr. Derald Wing Sue of Columbia University for a definition for the term “microaggression.” He has described such offenses as “brief, everyday exchanges that send denigrating messages to certain individuals because of their group membership.”
The Princeton Microaggressions Facebook page relied on Dr. Sue’s definition for its purposes in December 2014, but added: “The perspective and lived experiences of each individual contextualizes the world around them and thus places a particular meaning in words based on their distinct subjectivity. What counts as harmless banter to some may be emotionally triggering to others.”
The University of Illinois report suggests that one way to ameliorate microaggressions on campus may include “General Education requirement about race, White privilege, and inequality in the United States,” National Review reported.
This is really pathetic. We’re teaching this crap to kids while they continue to slide in math and English and actual marketable skills. We can’t be surprised when they graduate college with no way of getting a job aside from George Soros paying them to protest.
