Washington Post

THE WASHINGTON POST ANNOUNCES WRITING STYLE CHANGES FOR RACIAL AND ETHNIC IDENTIFIERS. Beginning immediately, The Washington Post will uppercase the B in Black to identify the many groups that make up the African diaspora in America and elsewhere. …The use of Black is a recognition and acknowledgment not only of the cultural bonds and historical experiences shared by people of African heritage, but also the shared struggles of the descendants of enslaved people, families who immigrated generations ago and more recent immigrants from Africa, the Caribbean and other corners of the world.
