  1. What the host and the guest failed to explain is the term ‘micoinsult’, and that comedy may offend but comedy is good at magnifying the issue so that people can have a real conversation about why it’s funny or why it’s offensive. Some European Americans seem to be offended when they are called out on the fact they they have been offensive.

  2. I agree 100%! I need to add this under definitions: Microinsults: Verbal and nonverbal communications that subtly convey rudeness and insensitivity and demean a person’s racial heritage or identity. An example is an employee who asks a colleague of color how she got her job, implying she may have landed it through an affirmative action or quota system.
