[Ed. – Not to worry. ‘Vermin’ and ‘human filth’ are both still acceptable.]
The term “Caucasian” is now facing cancel culture, thanks to Columbia University.
The Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University released guidelines to promote “an anti-bias and inclusive curriculum” that encourages people to refrain from using the term “Caucasian” to describe a White person.
“Eliminating the use of outdated and imprecise terms, e.g., ‘Oriental‘ to describe an Asian person or ‘Caucasian’ to describe a white person,” the guidelines state.
This is not the first time that higher education has targeted the term.
Westby also said in the article that by using “Caucasian” to describe White people, society is “prioritizing [the] comfort of White people.”
