Bias is a type of writing FOR (positive) or AGAINST (negative) a particular event, group, idea, concept, plan, or person. There are SEVEN ways that an author can reveal their bias.
EXAMPLE: First Nations people described as “ROAMING,” “WANDERING,” or “ROVING” across the land. This type of language implicitly justifies the seizure of Native lands by “MORE GOAL-DIRECTED” white Europeans who “TRAVELED” OR “SETTLED” their way west.
EXAMPLE: Such words as FOREFATHERS, MANKIND, AND BUSINESSMAN serve to deny the contributions (or even the existence) of females.
EXAMPLE: Immigrant peoples are referred to as “SWARMS” or “HOARDS.” These terms serve to dehumanize and reduce the diversity and intra-group differences.
