Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.
Friend: oh my gosh! But you act like such a guy! You’re not even really a girly girl! He’s probably secretly gay since you act so much like a dude. He must like girls that don’t wear make-up? Is he not into white girls? Well when he saw me I wasn’t dressed cute maybe that’s why. We’ve talked all week. We’re going to hang out later. We kind of kissed it was like…ah! What’s wrong? Please don’t be mad!
Me: …..well good thing I dodged that bullet! I guess the rumors about him were true, anything walking he’s calling! Oh but congrats. :)
