The University of California published a guide to microaggressions. If you don’t know what that is, microaggressions are ordinary, unoffensive comments and actions that offend feminists and minority “activists” with chips on their shoulders.
Because this is such a big problem in the minds of liberals, UC has published an unintentionally hysterical guide to microaggressive behavior. What follows is a list of microaggresive behaviors, exactly as written, and then my own interpretation of what would not be microaggressive alternatives:
Microaggressive: Saying you’re not a racist because you have Black friends.
Not Microaggressive: Saying you’re a not a racist because you have black friends who are also racist.
Microaggressive: To compliment an Asian person on his math abilities.
Not Microaggressive: To compliment an Asian person on his reading abilities.
Microaggressive: “America is a melting pot” or “There is only one race, the human race”
Not Microaggressive: “You are as different from me as I am from an amoeba.”
Microaggressive: “As a woman, I know what you’re going through being a minority.”
Not Microaggressive: “As a minority, I know what you’re going through being a woman.”
Microaggressive: “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” (Really – this is actually listed as a “microaggression”!)
Not Microaggressive: “I believe that the least white person should get the job.”
