Microaggression U: Racism at Yale, from Students’ Perspectives

“That feeling of safety, of doing well, affects how many risks you take. If you feel unsafe you take less risks, and you grow less.”

If we want to change for the better, this is one of those that can make us realize what we’ve been missing all along. And it’s not just about race. It’s about everything we find different from ourselves and suffer our rejection. Rejection is fine, given that we made an effort to understand, there are just times that we can’t really please everybody; when this, however, turns into aggression and/or shaming–oppression, now that’s a different story.
