What a "minor" event looks like to a marginalised person vs a privileged person




Left graph shows a graph that shows how trauma accumulates with time like steps that keep going up and is very high. Text underneath says: The left figure shows how I react to a “minor” event that triggers deep emotional reactions based on previous trauma that accumulates over time.

Right graph no accumulation of trauma and thre are no steps at all and only shows the small impact (a single step) an outsider sees that is very low. Text underneath says: The right figure is how a person with privilege might view the same “minor” event and judge my reaction as an “overreaction”.
