BREAKING NEWS – Duluth, Minnesota – The mayor of Duluth, Minn. is pushing city council members to remove the word “chief” from city job titles, saying the term is offensive to Native Americans.

Under the new measure, Duluth’s chief administrative officer would be called city administrator and chief financial officer would be called finance director, the Star Tribune reported.

Duluth Mayor Emily Larson called on city council members to vote in approval “so that we have more inclusive leadership and less language that is rooted in hurt and offensive, intentional marginalization.” She later created a list of words that she felt were racially insensitive toward African-Americans. “Effective immediately, I don’t want any local astronomers using the term ‘black hole’, I don’t want any home owners referring to their sleeping quarters as a ‘master’ bedroom, and the word ‘Colored’ in the National Association for the Advanced of Colored People, should be replaced with the word ‘Crayoned’”.
