Jonah Goldberg on “microaggression” — the new college campus fad

“We live in a society where racial macro aggressions are appreciably rare, particularly at places like Williams.

In response, the molehills of alleged micro-aggressions are treated like the macro-aggressive mountains of yore.

An alternative response is to fake instances of real old-timey racism, a very common occurrence at schools across the country (including, I’m told, at Williams), so as to heighten “awareness” of a kind of racism that is not actually present at the school.

Williams isn’t a hotbed of racism, it’s an organ of the body politic under attack from self-declared white blood cells.

Of course, calling them white blood cells is just another white supremacist microaggression . . .
