The second sentence making the language nonracist and nonagist the sentence is She is a very capable black woman.
All you need to do is to remove one word. Which word do you think it is?

=)

Your answer to the first sentence is good. Husband and wife is much better than the s e x ist "man and wife."

If you need to make the second sentence non racist and nonagist, you'd have to say -- She is a very capable woman. The fact that she's black is probably irrelevant.

Inclusive Language:

1) His grandmother really enjoys spending the afternoon at the center for senior citizens.

2) One of the high points of our trip was seeing the Canadian Eskimos in their traditional garb.

3) Her brother's friend is an AIDS victim.

4) It's hard to believe that a woman her age could accomplish so much.

I still think it sounds sexist because marriage these days does not necessarily mean a man and a woman.
