Michigan Review editor talks 'inclusive language' with Fox & Friends

  • The campaign reportedly cost $16K.
  • Students were urged to sign a pledge to “use inclusive language” and avoid words such as “ghetto,” “insane,” and “tranny.”

What do the words “crazy,” “illegal alien,” “ghetto,” and “gypped” have in common? The University of Michigan paid $16,000 to ignite an “inclusive language” campaign that urges students to stop using these words because they are considered offensive.
