It's not every day that something on the city's website is unprintable here on MPLS. Today is one of those days.
Minneapolis is currently in the process of drafting a new harassment and discrimination policy. Among other things, the new policy will eliminate "the sometimes controversial list of specific offensive racial and ethnic slurs," a staff report said.
Page 4 of the current "Respect in the Workplace" policy lists a number of "derogatory terms" that are off-limits in City Hall. Most of them can't be repeated on this blog.
Some of the terms are also a bit outdated, including "gray lady" and "prehistoric relic."
The proposed new policy and procedures have broader prohibitions on verbal harassment of protected classes.
