Microaggressions

Let's Talk Now, Swetlana Kumar
Nov. 22, 2021, 10:14 p.m.

“Your english is so good!”
“Is that your real hair”
“Where are you really from?”

We’ve all experienced small comments aimed our way that intentionally or unintentionally hurt us and make us feel uncomfortable in our skin. These are all examples of something called microaggressions. Microaggressions are instances of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group. Despite what the micro- may have you believe, these incidences can have a huge impact on the mental health and well-being of marginalized populations. Attend our Let’s Talk Now Meeting at lunch this Thursday in room 215 to learn more about these impacts and how they can be minimized! Everyone is welcome!
