I have to make this sentence nonracist and nonagist can you help?

1. She is a very capable black woman.

here is my answer: She is a very capable African American.

2. It's hard to believe that a woman her ago could accomplish so much. I think it is correct because it didn't give her age.

3. One of the high points of our trip was seeing the Canadian Eskimos in their traditional garb. This one also sounds correct to me.

Why not just this? ~~> She is a very capable woman. OR She is a woman capable of very courageous decisions. (Or something like that to indicate what she is capable of.)

2. It's hard to believe that a woman her age could accomplish so much. I think it is correct because it didn't give her age.
How about --> It's hard to believe that someone could accomplish so much before reaching her current age.

3. One of the high points of our trip was seeing the Canadian Eskimos in their traditional garb. This one also sounds correct to me.
The only other thing I can think of is to find out if "Eskimos" is what they call themselves -- and then use that term in place of "Canadian Eskimos."

=)


They do not use the word "Eskimo" when speaking of themselves.
Instead they use a term that means (to them) simply "people." In
Canada that word is "Inuit," while in Alaska Eskimos refer to
themselves as "Inupiat" and "Yupik." The word "Yuit" is used in
Siberia.

She is a very capable person.


You don't need to point out that she is a woman, it is already inferred.
