    Paperback Description:

    A classmate questions how you got into college. A neighbor clutches her purse when you pass. A job interviewer compliments your English. Every day these experiences leave people of color scratching their heads, and before long, they’re impossible to ignore. After all, the neighbor doesn’t clutch her purse when whites approach. So, what gives? Is she racist? Making that call is hard when people aren’t obviously bigots, but their behavior has a name: racial microaggressions. These slights are indeed real; you’re not imagining things. With this book, readers will learn what microaggressions are, why they’re bad news, and how to handle them.
