If You Commit a Microaggression: When you’re even slightly aware you may have committed one OR if you’re confronted about it, do NOT be defensive. Listen. Learn from the wrongdoing. APOLOGIZE—just as you would if you hurt someone another way. That you didn’t intend to hurt them, doesn’t matter. That they were hurt by your words or action is what matters. Our faith calls us to be kind & compassionate.
Microaggression of the Week: You’re so articulate (to a person of color who shared a reflection during service.)
Message: It’s unusual for someone of your race to be well-spoken, speak English so well.
Instead: Comment on the power of the speaker’s words, the importance or impact of the ideas presented, or the picture their words painted in your mind.
