Classic Tip Encouraging Hard Work Now Considered a Racial Microaggression by College

"Everyone can succeed ..."

We've already seen the University of California, Berkeley, frowning upon notions that America is a "melting pot" and the "most qualified person" should get the job — and now another college has joined the fray.

The University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, has created a chart of racial microaggressions and posted it on the school's official website under "New Faculty Resources."

The chart explores theme, microaggression and message:

Quite a few aren't new. But one stands out — a variation on a well-known tip for achieving success.

It falls under the "Myth of meritocracy" theme (i.e., the myth that race doesn't play a role in success). The statement is as follows: "Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough."

The "message" this "mircoaggression" is sending?

"People of color are lazy and/or incompetent and need to work harder," the chart noted.
