[Archive] Quote: Microaggressions Chipping Away at My Soul

I’m so tired of these daily microaggressions chipping away at my soul. Your prejudice, racism, and insecurity shouldn’t be part of my daily existence. –T.Lanette

Four and a half months later, I still feel the same way. In fact, I think these situations have increased during the last few months. Microaggressions aren’t always the words that people say out loud. Words are easier to document and fight against. It’s the actions that are more difficult to deal with on a daily basis.
