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)!”
Last week, in an effort to frame things as they are, I decided to call Critical Race Theory what it is. Mandatory Black Supremacy Theory. A close cousin (because CRT does this to people “not of color”) is cancel culture. We need to call that what it is, blacklisting.
I have always told GraniteGrok writers that they are free to write about anything that amuses them even if it isn’t on our main topics of Politics and Political Culture. Sometimes, “hateful” emails turn out to be very amusing (but then again, I’ve been known to have a strange sense of humor).

In 1991 I returned to New Hampshire after being activated by the Marines for Operation Desert Storm, aka Persian Gulf War I. The happy homecoming will always be a fond memory. Some things had changed in my absence, of course, but time marches on.
Last I knew, “insurrections” end up with two sides killing a lot on both sides. With regard to the Capitol Rion in DC on January, 6th, there were very few deaths and none was caused by civilians. That already strains the credibility of Democrats calling it an insurrection, but now this!?
Here is an effective definition for the left’s use of the word “equity.” “It is a meritocracy, not based on your abilities, motivations, and work ethic but on suitability by skin color, sex, and ethnicity.
Today the First Amendment to the constitution of the once freest nation in the world is moribund. Its enemies are not Klansmen in hoods seeking to intimidate blacks. And its enemies are not right-wing conspiracy theorists rooting out communists.
