  • “Posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD – the diagnosis conjures up images of hollow-eyed combat veterans or terrified rape victims, but new research indicates that racism can be just as devastating as gunfire or sexual assault. . Can Racism Cause PTSD?  The answer is yes, and changes in the DSM 5 open the door for a better understanding of this phenomenon. Racism-related experiences can range from frequent ambiguous “microagressions” to blatant hate crimes and physical assault. Racial microaggressions are subtle, yet pervasive acts of racism.” (Williams, “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Psychology Today, September 6, 2015)
