Freshmen at San Jose State University Must Now Pay for Microaggression Training
“comes with a $250 price tag”
This is an example of how progressive concepts are legitimized by academia. These students have to pay for their indoctrination.

San Jose State freshmen pay for own microaggressions training
Freshmen at San Jose State University now have to pay for their own diversity training, which is incorporated into a Frosh Orientation that comes with a $250 price tag.
The addition of microaggressions training to the orientation was made public by SJSU’s Chief Diversity Officer Kathleen Wong on June 9 via a series of tweets. According to Wong, who leads the university’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the training consists of a video of microaggression skits, filmed with the cooperation of a film class in SJSU’s on-campus studio.
“RTVF 135 class. On campus studio. Win-win. Filming video of microaggression skits for diversity training for new student orientation,” one of Wong’s tweets reads, while another states. “Lumpia scene. Microaggressions. Filming 4-line memoirs for diversity & inclusion training new student orientation. On-campus studio.”

This is how bureaucrats justify their employment, by creating more rules, mandates, fees and requirements. Common sense is not an option.
“Microaggression training” seems counterproductive.
The whole point behind the concept of “microaggressions” is that anyone can be accused of doing something which nobody except the aggrieved party has detected, or even can detect. So there need be no evidence; the offense need not even be real. The accusation is sufficient to establish guilt; no need to even spring a Kafka trap, as no denial or claim of innocence is needed before guilt is established.
Accusation = guilt, a totalitarian dream.
On the other hand, maybe it’s just battlefield preparation. Once they’re forced to take the course, they’re already part way to accepting the validity of the concept. And the charge of microaggression can only be effective against people or institutions which accept such silliness.
Tell the Leftist/Progrssive’Libs to go F*ck Themselves,
Would that be a micro aggression?
I think that “micro aggression training” is a micro aggression. Trust me, my kids will never set toe at San Jose State unless they are ponying up every dime themselves.
