racial, gender, and sexual-orientation microaggressions

Exum, Keller, & Shircliffe, 2007). Indeed, avoidance of race topics has been likened to “a conspiracy of silence” (Sue, 2005).

Making the “invisible” visible is the first step toward combating uncon- scious and unintentional racism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of bigotry. That is the primary purpose and goal of this book:

  • to describe and make visible microaggressions

  • to describe the dynamic psychological interplay between perpetrator and recipient

  • to describe the individual and societal consequences of microaggressions

  • to reveal how microaggressions create maximal harm

  • to recommend individual, institutional, and societal strategies that will ameliorate the harms aimed toward marginalized groups in this nation
