The director of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Inclusive Excellence Center warned MRCTV that reporting on the center’s microaggression awareness program might result in murder, assault, and rape.
In order to help
students become “citizens of global and diverse communities,” UWM’s Inclusive Excellence Center has created a “Just Words?” initiative to combat microaggressions. “Microaggression” is defined on a flier for the program as a “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental humiliations, whether intentional or unintentional that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults. Typically based in assumptions and stereotypes.”
Examples of microaggressions, according to the Inclusive Excellence Center, include “Nazi,” “Third World,” “illegal alien,” “man up” – and even “politically correct” (PC).
When questioned about the program, the Center’s Director, Warren Scherer, told MRCTV that it would be held “personally responsible” if “the young men and young women who work in my office, receive threats of murder, assault, rape, etc. or any other harassing communication as a result of your publication”
