University of Arizona Distributes 20 Page Booklet On How to Respond to “Micro-Aggression”

The University of Arizona has reportedly distributed a 20-page booklet suggesting to its faculty that when a student is victimized by a “microaggression” that the appropriate response should be saying “ouch.” And the correct response for the offender should be saying “oops,” “If a student feels hurt or offended by another student’s comment, the hurt student can say ‘ouch.’ In acknowledgment, the student who made the hurtful comment says “oops.” If necessary, there can be further dialogue about this exchange.”  This new guide was authored by Jesus Treviño, who is the vice provost of this taxpayer-

funded university, whose annual salary reportedly is $214,000 per year!  In case you are oblivious to exactly what a highly offensive “Microaggression” is this booklet will give you the understanding so you won’t have any excuse. according to this guideline, Microaggressions are “the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.”
