Microaggressions are daily verbal, behavioral, or humiliation, that conveys hostile and derogatory insults towards minorities. Many perpetrators make statements that are racist without them knowing it. It’s due to the lack of education and awareness of other cultures that they feel the need to ask racial questions or comments. I will take a look at microaggressions at an institutional level, specifically the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Due to these understatements, many POC feel aggravated, oppressed, alienated, and unsafe on campus. Given the long history of white supremacy and exiling out minorities, these stereotypical ideas still exist in the minds of people today. Microaggressions occur because of insufficiency of education of minorities’ history and culture.
