Journey Toward Wholeness (JTW) “On Microaggressions” (#1 in a series)
Microaggressions are brief verbal and/or behavioral actions whether intentional or unintentional that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults that people of color (POC) endure every day—but usually aren’t noticed by white people (non-POC) who commit them. First UU POC report microaggressions happen often on campus causing pain and feelings of disrespect and attack. Microaggression of the Week: “I don’t see color.” Message: Race has no meaning. Racism doesn’t exit.
