When everything is a microaggression to somebody,

unless you're a minority of some kind.  In which case you can say all kinds of racist and bigoted crap and excuse yourself because 'only white people can be racist'.
As the College Fix reported, during a recent microaggression seminar at Northwestern University, when asked by a student if his entire speech was a “microaggression against white people,” Sue informed the poor rube that only white people can be racist, since minorities like him “do not have the power to oppress in the way that a white person might do because they have the very institutions that support it.” You know, unlike a widely published Ivy League professor whose views are forced down the gullets of helpless participants in compulsory campus training sessions.
No matter what you say or do, SOMEBODY will be offended somehow, therefore you're always guilty when accused.  And supposed to abase yourself.  And if you don't, if you disagree, that's 'proof' that you're racist/bigoted/fill-in-the-damned-blank.

"Being bigoted" has lost it's sting, as has "being racist". The appellation has been used so frequently that it now has no meaning.

When someone calls me a bigot or a racist, I ask them what race my wife might be? They don't know, so I accuse them of bring pre-judgmental, or prejudiced. Then I smile at them, and tell them about all the little black or brown gals I banged in college.

Normally, they'll have a stroke right then, and I'll call them an ambulance.
