Amherst College Releases Insane ‘Common Language Document’
On Wednesday, Amherst College in Massachusetts released a new “Common Language Document” for its students which lays out “definitions” about everything from capitalism to drag queens.
The document was released by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in an email to students.
“This project emerged out of a need to come to a common and shared understanding of language in order to foster opportunities for community-building and effective communication within and across difference,” the email said. “It includes a list of carefully researched and thoughtfully discussed definitions for key diversity and inclusion terms.”
The document attempted to “define” capitalism, calling it an “economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state. This system leads to exploitative labor practices, which affect marginalized groups disproportionately.”
The term “Legal/Illegal” is deemed a “[h]ighly racialized term to describe a person’s presence in a nation without government-issued immigration status.” The “definition” goes on to call the term “not an appropriate noun or adjective to describe an individual,” adding that it is “often misused to designate certain undocumented members of a society (specifically people of color) to deny their contributions, right to exist and recognition as people within certain national boundaries.”
