How to speak without bias, according to the 'Bias-Free Language Guide'

After attracting attention from conservative blogs last week, the University of New Hampshire has taken down its “Bias-Free Language Guide” from its website.

The document, which recommended replacing what it saw as outdated terms with more politically correct ones, was supposedly written by “a small group of faculty, staff and students.

It drew criticism after suggesting that the term ‘American’ should be replaced by “Resident of the U.S.” and that “Rich People” should be “People of Means.”
