¡Palabra!: Microaggressions

Microaggressions: are day to day environmental, verbal, and non-verbal slights and insults that intentionally or unintentionally communicate hostile, derogatory, and negative messages about people based solely on their belonging to marginalized groups.

These common and subtle moments of humiliation may seem harmless, but throughout life, can lead to increased morbidity and flattened confidence.

Las microagresiones : son los desprecios e insultos diarios ambientales, verbales y no verbales que, intencionalmente o no, comunican mensajes hostiles, despectivos y negativos sobre las personas ​únicamente porque pertenecen a grupos marginados. 

Estos momentos comunes y sútiles de humillación pueden parecer inofensivos, pero a lo largo de la vida, pueden causar a un aumento de la morbidez y la confianza disminuida.
