AR: Sanders bans “Latinx” from government documents

Source: New York Post

“Arkansas Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders will prohibit the use of the term ‘Latinx’ in government documents through an executive order. Sanders, who was sworn in as the first female governor of Arkansas on Tuesday, justified the ban of the word ‘Latinx’ in government documents and name titles by citing a Pew Research poll that found only 3% of American Latinos and Hispanics used the term to describe themselves. … Progressive groups and some politicians have pushed the term ‘Latinx’ in recent years as a gender-neutral alternative to the Spanish words Latina and Latino.” (01/11/23)
