Kevin Nadal, Associate Professor of Psychology at CUNY, asked some of his friends to share the microaggressions they’ve experienced as members of the LGBT community. Prof Nadal, was inspired this photography project about racial microaggressions.
The term “microaggression” was coined the term in the ’70s by Dr. Chester Pierce. It means
Brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioural, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of colour.
Its crazy, but we all hear these digs and to many they have become a day-to-day occurance.
