It seems that academia has created their own circular logic and witch hunt for racism. Since overt racism is so rare, these days, those race-baiters are having to employ 'microscopes' to discover and expose new cases. Hence the new term; "Micro-Aggression".
The premise is that racism is still everywhere and whites are the only ones suffering this 'chronic disease'. The National Institute of scholars defines it as;
'There are so many, many cruel statements, wrong words, routine insensitivities, and degrading silences—those “brief and everyday slights, insults, indignities and denigrating messages” sent by well-intentioned members of the dominant culture. Whites are “unaware of the hidden messages being communicated,” while overtly denying that they are racists."
