Microagressions “happen outside the level of awareness of well-intentioned individuals” (Wing Sue, 2007).
Last week you took part in a Discussion in which you shared your personal definitions and experiences with microagressions. You were asked to spend the next week listening for and being sensitive to microagressions taking place in the interactions of people around you and in the media. In preparation for this week’s Discussion, consider:
What have you learned about prejudice, stereotypes, discrimination and microaggressions
Why discussions need to be supported and fostered by sensitivity and respect

By Day 3:
Post your thoughts with regard to two of the following:
Examples of microagressions that you noticed this past week and your response or possible responses
How tuning in to people’s interactions and the media broadened and deepened your awareness of and sensitivity to microagressions, discrimination, prejudice, and stereotypes
