Great Moments in American History, Revised According to AP's Inclusive Style Guide

Journalists urged to avoid 'general and often dehumanizing' labels such as 'the French'

January 27, 2023

What happened: The Associated Press issued new style recommendations that aim to promote diversity and inclusion by discouraging the use of "general and often dehumanizing 'the' labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated."

The tweet has been deleted but will never be forgotten:

What we're doing about it: Revising some of the most important texts and quotes throughout American history according to these new guidelines from a group of affiliated individuals experiencing journalism and impacted by a collective identity known as "The Associated Press."

We didn't have a choice. Failing to update these documents using the most up-to-date advancements in the field of inclusive language would be the moral equivalent of violence. Enjoy!
