The National Archives recently adopted a policy to place “Harmful Language Alerts” on historical documents they have digitized, warning readers of potentially triggering language, words or descriptions
These alerts don’t just appear on the founding documents, though. They appear on every page of every document hosted by the Archives
The Archives has not noted or otherwise censored any language it considers potentially harmful.
