She is a very capable black woman.

Is this inclusive language or making language nonracist and nonagist.


She is a very capable black lady.


this is making language nonracist and nonagist.

It should read:
She is a very capable black lady.


This is far out of my field but I have some background in practical written communications. For what it is worth, I would write, "She is a very capable lady" or "She is a very capable woman" and let it go at that. I'm sure you will (I hope you will) get other comments. My comment is to make the point that the word "black" actually isn't needed if we are determining capability.


DrBob222 is exactly right.
