University of Southern California Removes the Word “Field” For Being “Racist”
Earlier in January, the University of Southern California removed the word “field” from the curriculum and academic references due to its supposedly “racist” connotations.
In particular, the university is changing phrases such as “field of study” and replacing them with terms such as “practicum” in order to push the cause of anti-racism.
“This change supports anti-racist social work practice by replacing language that would be considered anti-Black or anti-immigrant in favor of inclusive language,” a letter detailed in justifying the decision.
“Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ maybe have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign,” the letter continued.
The university’s social department claimed the change was a necessary step to “reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies” and to train social work students to “understand and embody social and racial justice.”
BLP previously reported on Stanford University’s recent move to eliminate the word “American” in an effort to further police everyday language.
There is a clear push in institutions of higher learning to distort language and even change language so that it conforms along politically correct lines.
Ultimately, these institutions must be purged and clobbered by serious nationalist administrations. The very fact that these institutions can corrupt the minds of millions of young adults should be sufficient grounds for massive punitive action to be taken against them.
