Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a scale examining the occurrence and discomfort caused by incidents of racial microaggressions. Racial microaggressions are brief, subtle, slights directed towards people of color, intentionally or unintentionally, that occur, verbally, behaviorally, and environmentally, on a frequent basis. The scale items were developed using themes identified in the qualitative literature. This scale will allow me to examine the impact of racial microaggressions on people of color on campus. This research involves recruiting black members of the CWU community (students, faculty, and staff) to respond to an online survey regarding their experience of microaggressions on campus. Students will be recruited through their association with various African American student organizations (BSU, ABS, Athletic Teams, etc.) and recruiting students currently enrolled in sociology classrooms. The data collected will undergo to the statistical analysis (ANOVA). The survey will take less then 10 minutes to complete.
