New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters took a big risk on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday, when he criticized the term microaggression and called out American college students for being “wusses.”

Peters said academia has become overly sensitive, and it is beginning to affect the way people interact with each other on a daily basis.
