After reviewing the powerpoint on Microagressions in the Week Four module (and watching the embedded videos in that powerpoint), as well as reading Chapter 5 in the course text, please answer the following:
1) Considering that microagressions include unintentional slights and insults, have you been guilty of committing microagressive acts?
2) Can you identify how you may have committed microagressions related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, etc..?
3) What do your microagressions tell you about your unconcious perceptions of marginalized and underrepresented groups?
4) If microagressions are mostly outside of conscious awareness, what must you do to make them visible? What steps must you personally take to stop microagressions?
5). What solutions can you offer that would be directed at individual change, institutional change, and social change?
