Warren Turns Back on ‘Latinx’ in Major Campaign Departure
Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to use the gender-neutral term “Latinx” for the first time in seven months, marking a major departure from previous campaign rhetoric.
Warren has consistently used “Latinx” in favor of the gender-specific alternatives “Latino” and “Latina.” The Massachusetts senator mentioned “African-American and Latinx” families on the June debate stage and went on to sell unisex “Latinx with Warren” t-shirts. Warren did not use the term “Latino” on Twitter after that debate.
