I apologize for posting my article late.
I believe this article is important for several reasons but primarily because work on emotions are important the ability to quantify anything in research is a powerful tool. I wholeheartedly agree with the authors who state that “developing and validating a scale appropriate for RBF study is an important first step in assessing and furthering the research of racial microaggressions”. Although the article is filled with mostly the key findings and results I am more interested in a discussion of the themes used, a critical look at the questions asked and maybe some questions for the authors because I planned on contacting them.
Also, because we all are looking at some aspect of the human experience, I am wondering about how others feel with the idea of quantifying something as subjective and personal as lived experiences.
