V.I.P.
In a statement issued Wednesday, Huddleston said the guidelines, which appear on the UNH website, are not university policy.

"I am troubled by many things in the language guide, especially the suggestion that the use of the term ‘American' is misplaced or offensive," Huddleston said. "The only UNH policy on speech is that it is free and unfettered on our campuses.

Here's UNH bias free language guide.

The University of New Hampshire claims this isn't part of their policy but why would you have someone come up with this crap. Most are stupid like don't use the word senior citizen refer to them as old people. How is that less offensive? Another suggestion they made was don't call rich people rich, call them people of material wealth. What really gets me is calling ourselves Americans or Caucasian is considered politically incorrect.

I don't know where they dug this bunch up at that came up with this but I'm finding them a little offensive.

Thoughts?
