  • Did I just hear someone use a microaggression????????

  • Microaggression, it's a term. We all came to love, but what does it really mean?

  • Let's do a quick simple google search to find out. What is a microaggression? Wait...

  • What is a microinsult... A microaggression is the..? What is a microassault?

  • What is a microinvalidation?

  • Macroagression?! Microagression...

  • Macroassault! Microregression...

  • Macro discrimination!!

  • My god, okay, all right we're gonna have to take a step back. Micro aggression is a term coined in 1970,

  • But recently, Got popularized, thanks to this wonderful man. Let's see how he describes it.

  • Good day everyone my name is Derald Wing-Sue

  • Why does this feel like a comedy sketch? It feels like I'm watching Adult Swim.

  • To share with you some of the harmful impact that micro aggressions have on...

  • The music is so uplifting!

  • ...marginalized groups in our society.

  • Is it a good thing? I can't tell.

  • Well, micro aggressions are the everyday slights, indignities, put downs and

  • insults that people of color, women

  • LGBT populations, or those who are marginalized

  • experience in their day to day interactions

  • with people. In this scene, Jenny has finished a late night at the office and awaits the elevator

  • I can tell it's a very late night based on the darkness.

  • The door opens,

  • She takes one step forward, sees a black male rider, hesitates

  • And immediately clutches her purse and places her hand over her necklace.

  • African-americans are prone to crime, will break the law, are up to no good and will steal. Okay

  • I have taken a couple classes in

  • Microaggressions and basically here we go, Micro aggression it can be divided into three groups

  • based on if it's a

  • intentional microaggression or an unconscious microaggression if it's an

  • unintentional

  • Microaggression, then it's called a micro invalidation whatever the heck that is and then if it's intentional

  • it's a micro assault and

  • if it's somewhere in between you will find a

  • Micropenis just kidding, a Mic.. it's a micro insult in the middle if you're not okay

  • These jokes are so fucking bad my god

  • now you might think that micro aggression is not that big a deal. Not, people don't use it seriously come on Felix

  • so

  • Recent TV went to a campus to do some research

  • Occidental College in California is considering instituting a system for students to report so-called

  • Microaggressions, oh wow, I believe the most qualified person should get the job

  • Qualifications aren't really the only the only things you consider when hiring someone. How can you say that?

  • how can you even hesitate on that, qualifications aren't really the only the only things you consider when hiring someone, what else is there if

  • You're running a business you want the most qualified person for the job

  • Right Wrong

  • did I just hear someone use a microaggression. I understand not wanting to hire the same type of people

  • Because then you're just gonna get the same type of opinion

  • But the quo... most qualified person

  • Surely if you have if you get a job you should get it knowing "I was the most qualified for

  • this job"

  • Qualifications aren't really the only

  • The only things you consider when hiring someone. I am so confused. If you're saying that the most qualified person is someone who is

  • Not a minority you're not a religion you believe and then yes, I'd be a microaggression

  • But that's not what they were saying . Saying "god bless you" after somebody sneezes

  • oh that would be a microaggression because

  • Different religions, yeah, it could be a microaggression to someone who doesn't believe in God

  • I think that the harm. There is relatively minimal

  • So there's still some harm though. Definitely harm. I feel my whole.. my soul is burning my soul is on fire

  • I truly feel what it's like to be marginalized

  • Could be a microaggression to someone who doesn't believe in God

  • It could be a microaggression to someone who doesn't believe in God it reminds me the other week when?

  • Mr.. Wil Wheaton who has me blocked on Twitter for being toxic?

  • tweeted right after the church shooting in Texas that the murdered victims

  • Would still be alive if prayers did anything that seems like the good time as any to?

  • Criticize prayers after a church shooting thing is I don't believe in religion

  • I am what yeah agnostic atheist

  • But I don't feel the need to criticize other people if people want to say thoughts and prayers to something bad happening

  • I know they have a good intention in mind even though

  • I don't believe in what that good intention is I don't feel the need

  • To go against that and the same thing with God bless you you know someone means something well

  • Why would I personally turn I would be the one responsible for turning it into something negative

  • and that's the thing with

  • microaggression is that it's a game that anyone can play but no one wins I have an accent like a like a

  • Swedish accent oh

  • Did you just assume my accent?

  • never

  • Never have I been so shook. I'm shook. I'm shooooook

  • Swedish accent excuse me just cuz I had this fake blonde hair. does not mean I'm Swedish, like a Swedish accent

  • Not everyone in Sweden is blonde. Okay!

  • what Microaggressions are the everyday slights indignities put downs for those who are marginalized?

  • experienced in their day-to-day

  • Interactions with people I'm not ignoring that these are

  • Could be hurtful for a lot of people. I I fully understand that I'm not trying to take that away from people

  • They have the right to feel whatever the way they want to feel but I found it really interesting

  • In this video when they talk about free speech

  • What are your thoughts on the concept of free speech do you support free speech yes, I do support free speech

  • Everyone should be able to say

  • What they believe in what's on their mind Unless it's a microaggression then we need to report it for hate speech I support free speech

  • but

  • It doesn't work like that. We condemn freedom of speech that hurt other people's feelings. Why don't you suck my micropenis?

  • In Derald Wing Su's one of his books he points out that

  • micro aggression produce physical health problems and shorten life

  • expectency and the general consensus from research is that there's no evidence to back up that micro aggressions is actually harmful and

  • What is actually defined who does it actually affect?

  • Some say it could even be more harmful to use the term now

  • Now that we know about micro aggression we're gonna play a little game. It's called

  • Can you spot the micro aggression a McGill student was forced to apologise for?

  • Racial microaggression after emailing joke obama clip this was an unintentional micro aggression, which we now learn

  • Invalidation good job class you learned a lot here today. It was posted with the caption

  • Honestly midterms get out of here write down in the comments what the micro aggression was right now

  • It was based on the fact not that

  • Midterms are frustrating, then you need to get that anger out it was Blackman angry am I right micro aggression

  • We also have this clip from the diversity Council of

  • Australia (Inaudible) project that we're working on is actually looking at how we come on girls, let's get cracking

  • girls the micro aggression here is ofcourse

  • Little bit more subtle for their untrained eye, but me as an micro aggressing

  • Expert I can easily tell you that this micro aggression is based on the fact that

  • They all look like girls and

  • Could it be the Kraken get crackin come on girls. Let's get cracking like a cracker white stir it now

  • Moving on this is posted on BuzzFeed about micro

  • aggression

  • Examples no. You're white

  • Moving on so what do you guys speak in Japan Asian?

  • Micro aggression

  • Just because I'm Somali doesn't mean I know any pirates. This guy is clearly just taking a piss

  • I mean look at his face come on. Let me just play this micro violin

  • For all these poor people with the signs and my god. it must be tough I get it

  • You know actually it's it's smaller than that it's super micro. Yeah, actually. It's so tiny it's it's a nano aggression

  • All right, okay, all right. Okay. Let's get serious now, and this might be completely based on my Swedish cuckery

  • And I can't help it, but I always try to be somewhat sensible and around all these ideas

  • I'm not dismissing the fact that this is a problem, but calling it a

  • micro aggression implies that there's violence

  • Involved and that somehow you have the right to strike back against it

  • With violence as well

  • Which is the joke that South Park hold?

  • when hitting anyone in the game for making a microaggression

  • When in reality it's just an insult excuse me. Did you or did you not say that this man seemed tired yes?

  • He's my friend. I said Paulo. You look tired microagressions

  • Persons of Hispanic backgrounds have been stereotyped as being sleepy and saying they look tired ss a micro aggression that will not Stand

  • But I am tired

  • And it's not a matter of definition. I think it's a you can call it micro. Whatever

  • That's not really the issue

  • I think the issue is how you're approaching a problem if people want to remove micro aggression from campus

  • I don't really have a problem with that shouldn't that be done through educating

  • instead of trying to police because it isn't

  • Educating what you do at a campus any form of social study and social justice these days just seems to be

  • About policing and haha we got you shame rather than educating and trying to explain

  • Why something is bad now excuse me while I go and cry some micro tears?
