Seattle city government is immediately banning certain words which are very common to the American lexicon. The source of ban came from an internal memo suggesting that “government workers no longer use terms like “citizen”, or ‘brown bag.”
by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Seattle’s Office for Civil Rights describes the aforementioned terms as terms as “potentially offensive” and therefore other language should be used to describe “brown bag” lunches and “citizen” rights. It is not clear on how Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights decided that such terms were “offensive.” Further, it is not clear how the ban on the language will be enforced. Will workers be fired or thrown in jail?
It is very kind of Elliott Bronstein, from the Office for Civil Rights, to tell us what words are appropriate to use. Bronstein suggests that the word “citizens” be replaced with the word “residents.” It is crystal clear that Bronstein is trying to disguise that fact that someone might actually be illegally living in the United States. Bronstein said that the term “brown bag” could actually be referring to one’s skin color in obvious reference to Latinos.
But don’t despair, Bronstein has an alternative. Rather than calling one’s impromptu sack lunch as brown bag, they could refer to it as “lunch and learn,” or “sack lunch.”
