“Can I touch your hair?” “You don’t talk Black.” “You’re pretty for a Black girl.” These are all examples of microaggressions — nasty little comments that get said to Black women every single day and that add up to major trauma. Being a Black woman in modern America is anything but easy. This week, Ms. Danielle is joined by friend and radio personality Tanisha Nichole to talk about microaggressions, how you can recognize them, and how you can help stop them from causing harm.
