Here are some ways to recognize racial gaslighting


1. Denial of Racism: When someone denies that racism exists or that a situation is racist, they may be attempting to gaslight you.


2. Blaming the Victim: When someone blames the victim of racism for their experiences or dismisses their feelings, they are gaslighting.


3. Minimizing or Invalidating Experiences: When someone minimizes or invalidates your experiences of racism, they are gaslighting.


4. Tone Policing: When someone focuses on your tone or delivery rather than the content of your message, they may be attempting to gaslight you.


5. Using Stereotypes: When someone uses racial stereotypes to dismiss or downplay your experiences, they are gaslighting.


6. White Fragility: When a white person becomes defensive or shuts down when confronted with issues of racism, they may be gaslighting.


7. Revisionist History: When someone attempts to rewrite or distort history to deny or minimize the impact of racism, they are gaslighting.


It's important to trust your instincts and not let anyone make you doubt your experiences of racism.
