milwaukee. bw 'were all adults here.' but a list of words some deem offensive... has this student questioning a relatively new campus guideline. bw 'i feel like its censorship.' last year, u-w-ms 'inclusive excellence center' debuted its 'just words' campaign, bringing attention to words and phrases like 'retarded' and 'crazy' that some might find hurtful. jh 'were not saying you cant say some of those words - but some of those words can be construed as microaggressions.' jim hill is the interim senior s says 'just words' is merely a suggestion, not censorship. jh 'we are not doing that at all. as a matter of fact, were trying to improve and have open dialogue.' also on the list... 'ghetto,' 'nazi'... and even 'politically correct.' jh 'someone can say, oh youre being politically correct - pc - well, someone may take offense to that and say, im not being pc im just being me.' we reached out to the center for inclusive excellence, a group funded by student fees, for an interview... ironically, a spokeswoman had only two words for fox6: 'no
of those words offensive - i think the use of them is all about who you are with.' while the group claims some might consider 'illegal alien' an overt anti- latino bias... or 'lame' ridiculing amputees... some students say... its just society being overly sensitive. cm 'it seems a lot of peoples feelings are getting hurt right now for anything.' there will be posters and fliers up all over campus once students return to classes highlighting the 'just words' campaign. of dialogue. reporting at uwm, bl, fox6 news. mary thanks bret does a zip code make a difference? one state representative says it does-- and he wants it to determine who might get a job with the milwaukee police department. fox 6's ashley sears explains. strained relations between the community and police-- coming to a head--in sherman

"i look in practice sometimes and ask myself, how does he make those no defender and he's throwing across his body. but i'm very excited to see what he does this friday. i mean it's going to be very fun just to watch this dude. it's the reason i wore number 12 in college. he's one of the reasons i wore number 12, why i watch football and why i play quarterback." and with just 10 days to go until the badgers season opener against lsu, they're still trying to figure out who will be the starting
