This exploratory study examined the effect of the microaggressor’s race/ethnicity on anxiety among 138 (74 Asian/Asian American and 64 Black/African American) college students. The relationship of collective self-esteem (CSE) and the race of participants on anxiety was also explored. Using a mixed methods design, overall findings indicated that racial microaggressions induce negative effects in participants. Implications regarding the findings are discussed.
