To date, no scale exists to measure racial microaggressions more generally in people of color. This scale was developed to measure the occurrence of and distress elicited by racial microaggressions. The purpose of this study is to examine the reliability and validity of this scale. The scale items were developed using themes identified in the qualitative literature.  The development of this scale will allow researchers to further examine the impact of racial microaggressions on persons of color.
