A (micro)aggression is an indirect, sometimes subtle put-down toward a person from a marginalized community, often wrapped up in what pretends to be a compliment. (Micro)aggressions can be an everyday occurrence for many Black, Asian, and racially minoritised people, and the cumulative effect is massive, like millions of small pinpricks that, after a while, are very painful. 
Some examples of (micro)aggressions include: 
  • “You’re so articulate” 
  • “You speak good English” 
  • “You don’t sound Black” 
  • Touching or commenting how amazing a Black person’s hair is, when it is just natural hair 
  • “Is that your real hair?” 
  • "Sorry, wrong person, you look so similar” 
  • Getting a name wrong, even when told how to pronounce it. 
  • “Where are you (actually) from?” 
  • “You are a credit to your race” 
  •  Colourblindness' - “There is only one race, the human race”, “Melting Pot” 
  • “I am not a racist. I have Black friends”  
  • “Everyone can succeed at University, if they work hard” 
  • Asking a Black person in a meeting why they have to be so loud, or to calm down 
  • “I didn’t realise you were the manager” 
  • Environmental microaggressions – e.g. naming all buildings after white cis men.  
Microaggressions also are targeted at LGBTQI+ people, disabled people, women, young and old people, people of faith, but they are most common when directed at Black people.  
Microaggressions are a form of racism and if the same person continues using them, ask them to stop/ and/or report them.
