FED Gets #Woke – US Federal Reserve Introduces Bias-Free Language Guidelines

The FED logo

My first thought when I see “bias language” anything is the National Embarrassment of the UNH BiasFree Langauge Guide. But when I heard this about the FED, my first thought was, “cool, no Critical Race Theory (CRT)!”

Critical Race Theory is based on systemic Bias. Racism. It is impossible to speak a word of it without that. So, while ending the FED is a better goal, ending the potential for CRT-based bias has to be worth more than the money they’re printing.

“Bias-free language recognizes diversity and avoids stereotyping, demeaning, or excluding people on the basis of gender, race, ethnic group, religion, age, ability/disability, or sexual orientation,” the guidance states. 

“Try to avoid words and phrases that may be considered offensive, pejorative, or prejudiced (whether consciously or unconsciously), as these can distract your audience from the ideas/information you’re trying to convey,” it continues.


No More CRT? Nah, they’re more concerned with “words” like Founding Fathers. Yes, you read that right.


The guidance contains a list of “biased terms” to avoid, including “blacklist,” “grandfathered,” and “Founding Fathers.” Employees are instructed to use terms like “denied,” “legacy,” and “Founders” instead. 

The Fed also said the terms “whitelisted, “manpower,” “manmade,” and “singular generic pronouns” – such as “he,” she,” “his,” and “hers” – should be replaced with more “bias-free” alternatives like “allowed,” “artificial,” and pronouns such as “they,” “their” and “theirs.”


I think the FED should be replaced with, well..nothing. But what can I say? I’m Fed up with the FED, and I’m a little biased about that.
