A lot of people don’t know the name for the behavior. It’s a nice catch all for the silent casual racism we endure daily. People do it and get to pretend they never did it. Like overlooking Black people applying for jobs, but the workplace is lily White. How did it get that way? Microaggressions.
These subtle, invisible ways we are punished for being Black and Brown must be shared. We need White people to know we got their number.
