Controversy on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus over guidelines suggesting words that students should not use.
FOX’s Gary Baumgarten reports:
As students arrive for the fall term they’re presented with a list of words that the campus inclusive excellence center says may be offensive to others. Words like retarded, crazy, ghetto and Nazi.
Some students say it smacks of censorship, but associate vice chancellor Jim Hill says it’s designed to make students sensitive to the feelings of others:
(Hill) “We’re not saying that you can’t say those words, we’re just saying that some of those words can be construed as micro aggression.”
Some might say the guidelines are designed to make students politically correct. But students might pause before making that argument. The term politically correct is among the offensive words and phrases on the list.
