Do you have several black friends, compliment people of color, and think that America is a melting pot?
You’re a racist.
That’s according to the University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point) “Examples of Racial Microaggressions,” a list of discouraged phrases and behaviors that are being given to new faculty and staff.
I’m not making this up. This isn’t a spoof or a hoax. You can visit the official University of Wisconsin website and see this for yourself.
Here’s an actual list of things that according to the University of Wisconsin are racist;
– Asking someone where they are from or where they were born.
– Telling someone they speak good English.
– Telling someone that you have several black friends.
– Saying that you’re not a racist.
– Complimenting an Asian person by telling them they are very articulate.
– Asking an Asian person for help with science or math.
– Uttering the phrase “There is only one race, the human race.”
– Saying that you think America is a melting pot and that when you look at someone you don’t see race.
– Believing that the most qualified person, regardless of race, should get the job.
– Thinking that every person, regardless of race, can succeed in society if they work hard enough.
– Telling a black person who is being too loud to be quiet.
– Telling an Asian or Latino person who is too quiet to speak up.
– Mistaking a person of color for a staff member when you’re in a store.
– Calling something “gay”.
– Doing an impression of someone’s dialect or accent.
University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point) told the College Fix that the words and behaviors are not banned per se, but acknowledged that this list is being used in faculty and staff training courses.
The list is also very similar to one being used for faculty training at the University of California and other colleges across the country.
So there you have it, you’re a racist. And don’t try and deny the fact that you’re a racist because, as the list above illustrates, that only proves you’re a racist.
