The University of New Hampshire has issued a Bias-Free Language Guide which identifies the word “American” as a “problematic” term which should not be used.
Other “problematic” words on the taxpayer-funded school’s lengthy list include “mothering,” “fathering,” “healthy,” “homosexual,” “rich,” “poor” and “senior citizen,” notes Campus Reform.
The goal of the politically-correct UNH Bias-Free Language Guide is “to invite inclusive excellence” on the public campus.
The guide’s broad and extensive, 4,812-word attempt to police language includes an introductory quote by Melissa Harris-Perry and covers virtually every nook and cranny of radical leftist identity politics imaginable.
The word “American” is “problematic,” according to the University of New Hampshire, because it “assumes the U.S. is the only country inside” land masses — North America, South America and Central America — with the word “America” in their names.
The UNH language guide decrees that language users should say “U.S. citizen” or “resident of the U.S.” instead.
For skin color, the taxpayer-funded school in the Live-Free-or-Die state instructs speakers to say “European-American individuals” instead of “Caucasian.”
Also, employees at the University of New Hampshire present as passive-voice fact the notion that the concept of race “was designed to maintain slavery.”
The words “mothering” and “fathering” are verboten because speakers must “avoid gendering a non-gendered activity.”
The word “black” for black people is okay, though.
