I don’t capitalize “white,” either.
In the interest of absolute fairness, I will no longer capitalize any race descriptors.
Furthermore, I will review all my posts and update historic mentions of race or ethnicity to lower case (hispanic, asian). While not grammatically sound, I’m going for consistency. I don’t believe ethnicity should receive any special language treatment.
*I will continue to capitalize nations of origin when describing a person’s nationality, ie, Ugandan, Norwegian, Cambodian.
