Steven Greenhut on the University of California's War on Microaggression



The University of California has been the subject of derision lately for its recent faculty seminars designed to wipe out so-called "microaggressions," which the university describes as "everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults" that "communicate hostile messages"to members of "marginalized" groups. These can be unintentional and even "preconscious" or "unconscious" slights. The war on microagression, writes Steven Greenhut, is the latest PC scheme at UC.
