Share your experiences of subtle, everyday racism
Subtle racism has been shown in studies to be far more taxing and damaging to the victim, compared to (non-physically violent) overt racism [APA, WebMD].
This blog is a safe space by, and for, people of color where they can share their experiences with everyday, subtle racism, or racial microaggressions.
Our main goal is to help people of color feel supported and validated in dealing with this insidious form of racism. We know how incredibly frustrating it is to have people doubt our experiences, so please be assured that you will always be believed here. No exceptions.
White people are welcome to follow and learn what subtle racism can look like and avoid doing it themselves, and stand up against it as allies.
