List Of Words Banned By Universities Across The States


The political correctness movement is a direct attack against our free speech as Americans.

Several Universities have announced that they will no longer use words that are demeaning and offensive.

The only problem is all these words on this list are neither.

Check it out:

  • Homecoming King and Homecoming Queen: The University of Pittsburgh has decided to get rid of the words king and queen due to the fact that they are outdated words. Instead, Pitt will award the homecoming king and queen the “Spirt of Pitt” award. Umm, no thanks!


  • Legal Vote: Boston University’s Director of the Center for Anti-Racist Research Ibram Kendi said the term was racist. So, guess what in the eyes of liberals it is!


  • Student-athlete: A UV professor says the term has racial undertones and it’s mostly referred to as black athletes.


  • Chinese Virus: The University of California has banned the term Chinese Virus. Why? You guessed it because it’s “racist”.

Do you see a trend here, folks?

]It’s almost as if our whole English language is racist according to leftists.
