‘Anti-Black’: US University Bans Use Of ‘Field’ Over Racist Concerns

The US varsity, University of Southern California’s school of social work has revealed that it will stop using the word “field” in its curriculum, citing its racist “connotation.”

It was gathered on Wednesday, after the USC’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work stated the recent change was critical to support anti-racist social work and inclusivity.

The United States varsity department specifically decided not to further use the word “field” from its curriculum and replace it with new word, “practicum.”

The school revealed that the change supports anti-racist social work practice in the school by replacing language that would be considered anti-Black or anti-immigrant in favour of inclusive language in the school.

“Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ maybe have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign,” the school further stated.
