UCLA teach students that microaggressions are literally murder

A UCLA professor is teaching black students that so-called “racial microaggressions” are “literally murder” that needs to be dealt with.

In a call-to-arms, Dr. Daniel Solorzano was filmed telling students at the University of California, Berkeley Wednesday night that microaggressions shohld be viewed as “assaults directed at people of color in order to keep them in their place.”

Campusreform.org reports: Solorzano rejected the conventional definition of microaggressions as often-unintentional behaviors that have no malicious intent, but are perceived as such. Instead, he argued that they should be perceived as “assaults directed at people of color” based on the “academic, psychological, and sociological toll on those targeted.”

Solorzano further asserted during a follow-up interview with Campus Reform that, due to the ubiquity of racism in American society, “the ‘micro’ in microaggressions does not mean ‘less than’ [macroaggressions]. The micro in microaggressions means ‘in the everyday'” [emphasis his].

On several occasions throughout the event, the UCLA professor even went so far as to say that such constant exposure to microaggressions can actually be “lethal” to those on the receiving end of them.

“The accumulative stress from racial microaggressions produces racial battle fatigue,” declared one slide in the presentation. “The stress of unavoidable front-line racial battles in historically white spaces leave People of Color feeling mentally, emotionally, and physically drained. The stress from racial microaggressions can become lethal when the accumulation of racial psychological symptoms from racial battle fatigue goes untreated or are dismissed completely.”

Notably, however, data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that in 2016, blacks had the lowest suicide rate of any racial demographic, just below Asian/Pacific Islanders and significantly lower than American Indians and whites (Hispanics are considered separately).

Solorzano also claimed that President Trump has incited microaggressions during both his campaign and his presidency, speculating that Trump was instigating such incidents in order to continue the systematic oppression of racial minorities.

As evidence, he displayed photos of high school students posing in front of a “wall” they had constructed out of cardboard boxes with the caption “we built the wall before Trump!”

Perturbed by this incident, Solorzano said he “can’t possibly imagine how this incident affected the 9% of this school population that is Latino.”

Solorzano also cited Trump’s support for constructing a border wall and rhetoric directed at criminal illegal aliens, as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Trump Effect” study, as evidence of the “overt racism” wrapped up in Trump’s presidency.

“I am not calling for censorship. I’m saying that we Need to Acknowledge and Disrupt the Discourses of Racial Microaggressions in the Everyday,” Solorzano told Campus Reform [capitalization and emphasis his].

“I use the metaphor of a Tree,” he elaborated. “Racial Microaggressions are the Leaves. The Trunk of the Tree is Institutional Racism. The branches of the Tree are the various Systems where People of Color experience Everyday Racism—Educational, Political, Criminal Justice, Mass Media, Economic, and Health Systems. The Roots of the Tree is white supremacy.

“I’m defining white supremacy as the assigning of values to real or imagined differences, in order to justify the inherent superiority of whites over People of Color and therefore the right and power of whites to dominance over People of Color,” Solorzano explained. “Racial Microaggressions are one way that white supremacy manifests itself for People of Color in the everyday.”

This is the impetus for Solorzano’s newest research topic: racial microaffirmations.

Observing that students of color “don’t go to certain places on campus, certain restaurants, certain stores, because it can literally kill them” due to being perpetually microaggressed and “racial battle fatigued,” Solorzano said he is beginning to research “counter space” culture and “racial microaffirmations” based in shared cultural intimacy.

“People of Color need to affirm the dignity and humanity of one another as a response to everyday racism,” he asserted.


  1. Its because the Romans couldnt stand the fact that the Egypyians in Africa were the greatest most advanced civilkization ever on Earth Its because they still cant stand that,or even that Jesus wasnt a white skinned blue eyed Caucasoid .Basically the aggression comes ftom the Roman Empire and its curreent progenies,,not white people,per se.

  2. What about the lethal cumulative effect of microaggressions against white people? Having lived as a white person for 56 years, I’m an expert on that subject.

    • And we still remain strong. Except for the self hating, self defeating white apologists, we are still like minded and one. We speak with words we understand because we all have been through an endless war together. We are weary and our lines are better defined as we age, but we are still here, together, tougher and hopefully awake.

  3. One can only hope that Dr. Daniel Solorzano will eventually get his d–k stuck in a legal revolving door.

    • International Law and Article 62 of the European Convention on Human Rights recognizes the difference between BEE, bee and bees and accepts that belligerence, expropriation, and extermination can be applied to the production of honey and milk in a promised land where the minorities can lead an unmolested life not subjected to domination by other peoples. Acceptable BEE allows for the oppressed minorities to have their own territories and Institutions and 47/135 Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic , Religious and Linguistic Minorities is just one of many Treaties, Declarations, Conventions and Covenants on this issue.

      • Your context is very Saul Alinski. I would have taken it more seriously if you had chosen resources which exemplify the amalgamation of humans more viable, evolutionary and productive than division. Bad laws never create a good environment. Using bad laws to promote division in the guise of equality is contemptible.

  4. If they are the super people they claim to be then “micro aggression” wouldn’t even bother the least of them. This whole thing stinks of bovine scatology

  5. I’m sure their “plight” has nothing to with the fact that they are standing like a bunch of Mafia goons in front of building, scaring the daylights out of all who want to enter. Who is micro-aggressing whom?
