University of Southern California Removes the Word ‘Field’ For Being ‘Racist”
May offend “descendants of slavery”
Paul Joseph Watson
The University of Southern California has removed the word ‘field’ from the curriculum and academic references because it supposedly has “racist” connotations.
No, this isn’t the Babylon Bee.
The university announced that phrases such as “field of study” will be replaced by “practicum” in order to advance 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 favour of inclusive language,” said a letter explaining 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,” it added.
Apparently, throughout human history, only black slaves and immigrant workers have ever worked in fields. Farmers and native farm workers presumably never existed.
The university’s social department said the change was crucial to “reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies” and to train social work students to “understand and embody social and racial justice.”
Now that @USC has confirmed that fields are racist, I think @JoeBiden owes us an explanation… pic.twitter.com/L4mRcHbdy0

In other words, eliminating completely harmless words because they may offend a handful of idiotic imbeciles is a key component of the university’s struggle session factory line, which must produce a steady stream of brainwashed language police cadets to rule over our new woke dystopia.
As we previously highlighted, Stanford University proposed adding the term “American” to a blacklist with other ‘harmful’ words, reasoning that it is ‘too U.S.-centric’ and not inclusive enough of other countries.
Although Stanford had to walk back the policy, it is now commonplace for supposed institutions of education to attempt to ban ordinary words and phrases as part of a loyalty oath to the woke mob.
As we highlighted last year, an arts college in Waltham, MA banned the use of words and phrases it deems to be ‘violent’ or ‘racist’, replacing them with bland alternatives in an effort to prevent anyone from being offended.
The elimination of words is inspired by George Orwell’s 1984 and Newspeak, in which the permissible vocabulary range was steadily reduced in order to control thought.
Power over language equates to power over reality, and this is why woke progressives are hell-bent on limiting the range of acceptable words in the name of political correctness.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
