According to a 2014 study by a Rutgers University psychologist, Luis Rivera, published in the Journal of Social Issues, minorities are fat because of racial microaggressions. If you haven’t already figured it out microaggression is liberal terminology for It’s Not My Fault!
“When you are exposed to negative stereotypes, you may gravitate more toward unhealthy foods as opposed to healthy foods. You may have a less positive attitude toward watching your carbs or cutting back on fast food, and toward working out and exercising.” Hispanics and Blacks who believed negative stereotypes about themselves are three times more likely to be overweight or obese — evidence that the obesity comes from believing the stereotypes spread through the mass media butt subconsciously through harmless social interactions.
Microaggression is a term first coined by Harvard Medical School psychiatrist Chester Pierce in the 1970s that, at least in its original meaning, described an everyday slight or putdown directed toward a marginalized group (non-white, of course) that is so subtle that neither the target nor the perpetrator understands what is going on. Say What? Unconscious racism that goes unnoticed by both parties is a problem?
Before you accept this Whine Theory, be aware that in a 1973 speech at the International Education Seminar, Dr. Pierce is also quoted as saying that all five year old children entering school for the first time are mentally ill because their loyalty is to their parents, the Founding Fathers and a belief in God or some other supernatural being and it is the duty of government education to correct this mental illness.
Dr. Derald Wing Sue, another Whine Theorist, claims that most well-intentioned White Americans have inherited the racial biases of their forebears; that the most harmful forms remain outside the level of conscious awareness; and that making the “invisible, visible” is the first step to overcoming hidden prejudices. Racial, gender, and sexual orientation microaggressions are active manifestations and a reflection of our worldviews, reflecting the active manifestation of oppressive worldviews that create, foster and enforce marginalization. Research suggests that none of us are immune from inheriting the racial, gender, and sexual orientation biases of our society. We have been socialized into racist, sexist and heterosexist attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. Much of this is outside the level of conscious awareness, thus we engage in actions that unintentionally oppress and discriminate against others. Do they not hear themselves? If racism is genetic no one is responsible for being a racists so doesn’t that make it a non issue?
Examples of Microaggression might include a white male offering his seat to an elderly black woman. He isn’t necessarily being kind, he is unconsciously making the assumption that she needs the seat more than he does which contributes to her feelings of being marginalized. What? Manners are now microaggression? A female physician wearing a stethoscope is mistaken as a nurse suggesting that the person is saying women are less capable than men. Speaking loudly to a blind person doesn’t mean you’re just stupid, it means that you are telling them that they are lesser than you. Again, do they not hear themselves?
Microaggression also includes using examples in the classroom that push “heterosexist” terminology such as “magnets are attracted to each other like males and females.” Apparently electricians engage in heterosexist oppression daily when asking their coworkers to pass a female or male connector. Heck, plugging a lamp in the wall is basically a hate crime to these idiots.
Some forms of the Whine Theory appear to require magic spells and unicorn blood derived from a Harry Potter spell, while others may in fact exist in a parallel universe where breathing is a crime.
“Microagression Theory, like Critical Legal Theory and it’s offspring, Critical Race Theory, Fem-crit, Lat-crit, and Queer-crit is racial and religious propaganda, designed to marginalize whites, Christians, and successful people. Every one of these theories intends to destabilize society and morality as it has existed for millennia. Each theory increases the odds of making another theory a reality – Chaos Theory” Lynn Baber.
