Complimenting a Disabled Person can be a Microaggression at Mizzou

Seriously, Mizzou?!

The University of Missouri Diversity Office offers a primer on microaggressions that spotlights such seemingly innocuous phrases as telling a disabled person that “you people are so inspiring.”

The handout, “Can We Talk Microaggressions in Every Day [sic] Life,” highlights the messages behind common microaggressions and is available on the Mizzou Diversity website, a part of the Chancellor’s Diversity Initiative.
