Passive Micro-Aggressions

Please keep it to about 100 words.

"Well they have culture, you know, not like white people."

Caucasians bring many cultures that invented many of the things we take for granted. It's not our fault that diversity of any form -- racial, religious, ethnic, cultural and even aptitudinal -- causes societies to fail, as it did in ancient Greece, Rome and Mexico. Furthermore, we're tired of everyone else assuming we're here to give them things for "sins" that we didn't commit.

Context Social setting? Relevant identities (race, sexuality, gender, age, trans*, religion, class, etc.)?

Any number of white, black and other people in social settings.


How did this make you feel?

Like I'm on a planet of idiots.
