Many college campuses promote themselves as integrated multicultural spaces where students from diverse backgrounds live, study, and play together in unity, but many students of color experience racial hostility and exclusion in their daily routines. Using the concept of racial microaggressions, the definition of racism can be expanded to identify representational spaces that reflect the lived experiences of students of color at a predominantly white institution.
