The Associated Press announced last month it would capitalize the word “Black” when used to describe racial, ethnic or cultural topics, but decided this week that “White” will not receive the same treatment -- partially because the newsgathering service feels capitalizing “White” could subtly legitimize white supremacy beliefs.

“AP style will continue to lowercase the term white in racial, ethnic and cultural senses,” AP vice president and editor-at-large for standards John Daniszewski wrote.

FOX NEWS MEDIA TO CAPITALIZE 'BLACK'

The AP typically sets the style standard that is used in newsrooms throughout the country, so the decision will impact hundreds of publications. Daniszewski wrote there “was clear desire and reason to capitalize Black,” notably because “people who are Black have strong historical and cultural commonalities, even if they are from different parts of the world.”

The AP doesn’t feel there is similar support when it comes to capitalizing the word “White.”

“White people generally do not share the same history and culture, or the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color. In addition, we are a global news organization and in much of the world there is considerable disagreement, ambiguity and confusion about whom the term includes,” Daniszewski wrote.

"The AP typically sets the style standard that is used in newsrooms throughout the country, so the decision will impact hundreds of publications."

The Associated Press took the lead over a decade ago to make Leftist and Liberal jargon and terminology the "choice" and "rule" for its "writers/reporters".

".........people who are Black have strong historical and cultural commonalities, even if they are from different parts of the world.”

There ya go. "Broad-brush" all black people, you all inclusive bigot! Then do the "flip-side" for White's.

"AP Forever", I always say.

It seems to me that AP is guilty of practicing reverse racist, however, the MSM would not even complain. Hypocrites!
