Killing Me Softly
Show Notes
They are called microaggressions -  

“I don’t see color!
“You don’t sound Black”
“You’re an impressive young man - so clean cut!”

This is abuse via a thousand paper cuts.  These statements and others sound complimentary. Don’t be fooled.  They cut deep, forcing Black people to make an awkward decision.  Do I confront the subtle racist attack or smile and “go along to get along?”

As Allies, you have the power to stop these microaggressions.  In this episode, we’ll talk about how.
