The University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point has released a list of microaggressions it expects new faculty to read. The list, first reported by the Social Memo, can be found on the university’s official website.

The titled of the document is “Examples of Racial Microaggressions” and outlines types of “racist microaggressions,” examples of them, and what they are “actually” saying.

In the section “Color Blindness: Statements that indicate that a White person does not want to acknowledge race,” the quote, “America is a melting pot” is said to be racist. According to the document, whites try to force others to “assimilate/acculturate to the dominant culture” when they say that.
