Associated Press Sets New Guidelines for Writers to Capitalize ‘B’ in Black, but not ‘W’ in White

The AP has deemed that while the term "black" will continue to be capitalized when referencing the ethnic group, the term "white" will not.


In a “brave and stunning” new move, the AP has set forth new guidelines for writers in order to help fight racial inequality(?).


Henceforth, they will capitalize the term “black” when referencing the racial group, but continue to lowercase the term “white” in reference to race.

Attention everyone!  

Racism has been cured!

Okay, not so much…
