Dr. Silvia Mazzula in a post titled “But You Speak So Well”: How Latinos Experience Subtle Racism,” provides this noteworthy definition of microaggression: “things said or done – many times unconsciously – that reflect a person’s inner thinking, stereotypes and prejudices. They are difficult to recognize because they are brief, innocuous, and often difficult to see.” She also shares with readers the effects of microaggressions and why we need to be conscious of their use.
