Juliette Austin, Diversity Strategist and Professional Development Coach, describes the negative impact microaggressions have on people of color, who experience them on a regular if not daily basis. “It’s important to understand, these macro and micro aggressions are not directed to some abstract entity. They are directed – whether intentionally or not, to a human being whose identity is being directly impacted. Fatigue is a cumulative reaction, where not one incident is to blame but a culmination of experiences. Death by a thousand papercuts!”
