UCLA professor marks grammar in papers, is accused of ‘micro aggression’

What is micro aggression? UCLA defines it as:

“Subtle verbal and nonverbal insults directed toward non-whites, often done automatically and unconsciously. They are layered insults based on one's race, gender, class, sexuality, language, immigration status, phenotype, accent, or surname.”

All is not lost, though.

‘Students defend professor after sit-in over racial climate’

The college paper story shows the incident as graduate students being stupid. Except for the fact that the basics can be grabbed as indication of “See how things are screwed up in colleges today?” it’s a whole lot of to-do about nothing.
