What Racial Terms Make You Cringe? - NY TIMES

Diversity hire. Ethnic. Person of color. Exotic. Urban.

This week the Race/Related team is taking aim at a few of the words and phrases that we find bothersome when it comes to race. Some of the terms we chose also have entries in The Times’s Manual of Style and Usage. We’ve included the manual’s recommendations when appropriate.

Tell us if you agree or disagree with our choices, or send us your own picks at racerelated@nytimes.com. We’ll include a selection of the responses in the next edition of the Race/Related newsletter.
