Minor Feelings

Thursday, July 15, 2021

"In Pryor, I saw someone channel what I call minor feelings: the racialized range of emotions that are negative, dysphoric, and therefore untelegenic, built from the sediments of everyday racial experience and the irritant of having one’s perception of reality constantly questioned or dismissed. Minor feelings arise, for instance, upon hearing a slight, knowing it’s racial, and being told, Oh, that’s all in your head."

~ Cathy Park Hong, Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, 2020
