Speaker 1: So, you’re not good at golf? But you’re white.
Franchesca Ramsey: People of color have to deal with racial microagressions every single day. Microagressions are those little unintentional insults that basically see people of color as stereotypes, which got me thinking what if white people had to deal with racial microagressions.
Speaker 3: So, like where are you from?
Speaker 4: No, no. Like, where are you really from?
Franchesca: Why don’t you have an accent? Like a Swedish accent?
Speaker 3: You know your English is really, really good. It’s like I can’t even tell you have an accent or anything.
Speaker 5: I don’t have an accent.
Speaker 3: No, that’s what I’m saying.
Speaker 4: You don’t speak Gaelic?
Speaker 6: You don’t speak German?
Franchesca: Can you say a curse word in European?
Speaker 3: (making indistinguishable sounds) Hyai dee hyai hyai. You know, like, what does that even mean?
Franchesca: Hey Connor, you know about NASCAR stuff, right? Can you take a look at this?
Speaker 4: Can you teach me how to line dance?
Speaker 1: Do you play the banjo?
Speaker 7: Do you act entitled in the supermarket?
Speaker 8: I love white food. There’s no real flavor to it. Never an upset tummy.
Speaker 3: You’re so exotic.
Franchesca: How do you get your hair like that? I love how it’s so limp.
Speaker 1: (touching the other person’s hair) Eww, why does it feel like that? Oh my God, so it just does that?
Franchesca: You know, you are really pretty for a white girl.
Speaker 5: (using fingers to extend their eyelids back) Your eyes are so round – like this.
Franchesca: You know who you look like? Kenny Chesney.
Speaker 1: Zach Braff.
Speaker 3: Emma Stone.
Speaker 4: Rachel Maddow.
Speaker 1: My friend Chad. Maybe you know him – because he’s white, too.
Speaker 3: No, Emma Watson.
Speaker 7: Not Macklemore… What’s the other guy?
Speaker 3: Is it Emma Thompson?
Speaker 1: It’s C-H-A-D. Like Chad.
Speaker 3: One of the Emmas. You look like an Emma.
Franchesca: You know who you look like? I bet you hear this all the time. Jeffrey Dahmer.
Speaker 1: How does it feel to be the token white guy in the office?
Franchesca: Hey, Connor, can we get a white perspective on this?
Speaker 1: I love everything about white culture. You guys are like so fun.
Franchesca: What do you mean you don’t listen to Creed? You’re white.
Speaker 6: You’ve never tried meth? But you’re white.
Speaker 5: You don’t act like a normal white person.
Speaker 7: You’re not really white, though.
Franchesca: You’re not really white.
Speaker 1: I’m whiter than you are.
Franchesca: So, did all your ancestors own slaves?
Speaker 3: No, but of course he wishes that he could still own slaves. That’s a part of his culture.
Speaker 1: (speaking to a white person nearby) Bryce, back me up on this one. The thing you have to understand about white culture is that white people are…
Speaker 3: I go to a historically white college, so I know about white culture.
Speaker 1: Okay, but I backpacked in Europe.
Franchesca Ramsey: So, can you see how ridiculous this was? I know, story of my life. If you’ve ever experienced microaggressions because of your race, gender, sexuality, or body type, go ahead and vent about it in the comments.
Speaker 3: Can you teach me how to like take a really popular rap song, and like make it a ukulele song? It’s so cool. I think it’s so cool how you guys do that.
