I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect our language. Prevent those in power from unreasonably controlling and dictating language, God.

This is yet another attempt to control our language and restrict free speech. We must resist this.

From Daily Caller. Stanford University IT released an index of “harmful language” that it recommends be erased from the school’s websites. The list includes the terms “American” and “Hispanic.”

The list is a product of the “Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative,” which aims to “eliminate” words that may be deemed “racist, violent, and biased,” the document reads. …

The list recommends banning the term “American” and replacing it with “U.S. Citizen,” as it reportedly implies that the U.S. is the “most important country in the Americas.” …

A person should also use the term “LatinX” instead of “Hispanic,” since the former term is connected to Spanish colonization, the document reads. It also listed the word “Karen,” explaining that it can “ridicule or demean” a group of people due to their behaviors. The list further includes the term “straight,” “victim,” “grandfather,” “landlord,” “gentleman,” “ladies” and “chief.” …

The document included a disclaimer assuring staff and students that it does not intend to completely remove the words from its websites, noting that elimination is “a goal to strive for even if it can’t be achieved.”
