University of California Lists Statements That Are Microaggressions, Including “America Is the Land of Opportunity”

Universities have given up finding racism against anyone except whites, so they now search for “microaggressions,” a concept that confirms the liberal tenet that all whites are racist, since by not being racist, they commit a microaggression, which is racist. The University of California Office of the President (Janet “Uncle Mort” Napolitano) provides examples by listing statements that should not be uttered because they are microaggressions, including:

• “When I look at you, I don’t see color.”
• “There is only one race, the human race.”
• “America is a melting pot.”
• “I don’t believe in race.”

These statements are racist because they imply that minorities should assimilate, and because they are examples of “denying the significance of a person of color’s racial/ethnic experience.”

Do not claim not to be a racist; that would be a racist microaggression, because it would be “denying the personal experience of individuals who experience bias.”

Believing in America, the land people flock to from all over the Third World so as to experience racist oppression, is a microaggression. Under the rule of Uncle Mort, you must not say the following:

• “America is the land of opportunity.”

This politically incorrect statement implies that even sacred persons of color bear responsibility for their own lack of achievement, which according to liberal dogma can only be caused by racism.

By the same token, the following sentiments are explicitly forbidden:

• “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.”
• “Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough.”

The traditional concept of merit undermines official ideology. Only nonwhites have merit in a sense that is meaningful to progressives.

It is also racist to observe actual racism. This statement is proscribed:

• “Affirmative action is racist.”

Microaggressions can also be sexist/heterosexist. UC’s microaggression list warns against using the pronoun “he” in an offensive manner.

A more profoundly insane ideology than political correctness would be inconceivable.

Homeland Insecurity disaster Uncle Mort, now president of the UC system.
