Microaggression list scorns would-be bigots
An official University of California list of racist microaggressions asserts that saying Im not racist is racist.
The university guide defines microaggressions as, everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.
Examples listed on the universitys official website include telling someone, you speak English very well, telling an Asian person that they are good at math and insisting that America is a melting pot.
Using the phrase, Im not racist, I have several black friends is also listed as an example of racism.
Radio host Dennis Prager highlighted some other examples, which include saying, There is only one race, the human race, and also remarking, I believe the most qualified person should get the job. Thinking that, America is the land of opportunity is also racist, according to the guide.
A white woman who clutches her purse or bag when approached by a black or Latino person is also committing a racist microaggression, according to the guide. Asking non-white people why they are being quiet or loud is also racist.
Weve previously reported on other universities that use similar guidelines for microaggressions, including the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which launched a campaign that claimed using the term politically correct as a pejorative is a politically incorrect microaggression.
A Bias-Free Language Guide posted on the University of New Hampshire website also asserted that the word American is problematic because it assumes the U.S. is the only country inside [the continents of North and South America].
Other discouraged words and phrases included, obese, normal, mothering, fathering, homosexual, illegal alien, and senior citizens.

Salem Witch Trials, anyone?
IOW, “Don’t say a damn thing!” and ignore all other people.............
The liberal Stasi will swiftly lock you up for committing forbidden “microaggression” crimes against the darling protected snowflakes.
IF you are white, everything you do is ‘racist.’ You might as well embrace your inner racist.
And, if you're a white student at the Unifarcity of Kalifornia, speaking in any way shape or from is racist.
There is no end to the ever-tightening spiral of perpetually-recalculated liberal insanity.
They redefine everything 10,000 times; often trying to outdo each other.
It’s a religion, actually. A self-serving humanistic religion that makes up its own rules.
So, like, where’s the line between MICRO and MACRO-aggression? I remember when you actually had to hit someone for it to be assault.
OMFG. Beam me up now, Scotty.
So an unintentional slight is forbidden?? Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will make me call my lawyer. Sheesh. This is far, far gone.
So let me get this straight ... If you say you’re not a racist, you’re a racist. And if you say you’re a racist, you’re a racist.
Did I get that right?
Someone want to flowchart the “logic” where X and Not X go to the same result?
Denial, it’s a symptom.
But accusing somebody of being racist is A.O.K ;)
The nature of leftism is that eventually everyone is devoured in suspicion, guilt, accusation, violation and denunciation. Everyone becomes a snoop, and everyone is a suspect. When leftism has power, they create death camps and firing squads. The first to disappear are the SJW’s.
It turns people into their own private world, trusting nobody, while oddly making them part of the collective at the same time.
Like a really long flu, it takes about 75 years for it to run its course. And like the flu, it’s lots of fun.
Do you exist? Are you white? If the answers are yes, you are a racist.
Reading madness like this makes me wonder how the entire world just doesn’t go ape$hit on each other. The left really takes advantage of the right’s kindness.
And, like the flu, it kills lots of people.
We are going to need a full list of marginalized groups and then we need all the people properly labeled. Then, please, make an app with Appropriate Phrases For Marginalized Groups So that once we see a persons label, we can click the button to let us know what facial expressions and words we might use in interaction with them.
And dont forget the marginalized group of NORMAL PEOPLE WITH A SPINE. We may be the most marginalized of all.
The alpha and the omega of liberal identity politics obsession.
Every one’s a victim - unless they’re a white male. Got it.
