"Microaggression" Is the Latest Mega-Wacky Campus Fad

Despite conceding that a recent case of "microaggression" on a university campus was way overblown, the "m" word--it supposedly describes covert racism that is so subtle that it's barely perceptible and yet is considered so insidious that it MUST. BE. ROOTED. OUT. NOW!-- is making great strides these days. See, for example, this, this, this and this and it becomes immediately clear that, in the absence of genuine racism, universities, those little enclaves of totalitarianism and conformity, have had to settle for a war on manufactured hatred--a hate that exists solely in PC-addled minds.

Sigh. It kind of makes you long for the days when the kids swallowed goldfish and tried to cram as many warm bodies as possible into a phone booth.
