Microaggressions: All Racism, All the Time

What doesn’t seem like racism, is racism. Our problem is that we don’t know the truth about racism. Well-paid academics, however, do. They pierce through the veil of perception to find the truth (e.g., “racism is systemic and everywhere”) behind it.

Thus the whole anti-racist thing has taken on new Orwellian forms. Those who don’t see themselves as racist are suffering from what the economist Mary Rowe called “innocent ignorance”, which is itself a result of “unconscious bias”. In other words, not seeing oneself as a racist doesn’t mean that you aren’t racist. Instead, let some Ivy League academic clarify your position for you. You may not like what he/she says.
