Measuring Devils on Pinheads

Truly, we've come a long way when this is the issue:

According to Dr. Derald Sue of Columbia — as well as many college students across the nation — those who are “empowered” or “privileged” are commonly racist (or sexist, or homophobic, or transphobic or . . .) without even knowing it. Such racism manifests itself in what’s called a “microaggression,” which is an “everyday slight, putdown, indignity, or invalidation unintentionally directed toward a marginalized group,” Sue says.

Thankfully, "microsensitivity" can detect any level of actual or perceived offense. With the proper victim studies education, of course.

And President Obama is belittling art history majors?
