Racial Microaggressions: a photographic project against racism

“Racial Microaggressions” is a photographic project aimed ad exposing discrimination on grounds of race which takes place every day. The author of the project is Kiyun Kim, a student at Fordham University. Kim exposes racist comments she hears everyday through her series of photographs, and invited her friends to write the most frequent ones on a piece of paper. The young student filmed her friends holding posters that either express their thoughts on discrimination or quote comments they have heard. Stereotyped images regarding allegedly “typical” behaviours or physical features of specific ethnicities that turn into racial microaggressions.
