  1. from Wikipedia attributional ambiguity, "Attributional ambiguity is a social psychology attribution concept describing the difficulty that a member of a stigmatized or commonly stereotyped minority group may have in interpreting feedback from members of dominant groups. According to this concept, members of stigmatized groups find it challenging to determine whether feedback from dominant groups is based upon their actual behavior or membership in a stereotyped stigmatized group. This can cause stigmatized group members to discredit feedback from dominant group members because of the belief that stereotypes played a part in the overall decision."
