When using the term "Senate," capitalize all specific references to governmental legislative bodies, regardless of whether the name of the state or nation is used: the U.S. Senate, the Senate, the Virginia Senate, the state Senate, the Senate.

New guidance on AP Stylebook Online:

Use care in deciding which term best applies:
A riot is a wild or violent disturbance of the peace involving a group of people. The term riot suggests uncontrolled chaos and pandemonium.
Focusing on rioting and property destruction rather than underlying grievance has been used in the past to stigmatize broad swaths of people protesting against lynching, police brutality or for racial justice, going back to the urban uprisings of the 1960s.

Unrest is a vaguer, milder and less emotional term for a condition of angry discontent and protest verging on revolt.

Protest and demonstration refer to specific actions such as marches, sit-ins, rallies or other actions meant to register dissent. They can be legal or illegal, organized or spontaneous, peaceful or violent, and involve any number of people.

Revolt and uprising both suggest a broader political dimension or civil upheavals, a sustained period of protests or unrest against powerful groups or governing systems.

Capitalize U.S. Supreme Court and also the Supreme Court when the context makes the U.S. designation unnecessary.
The chief justice is properly the chief justice of the United States, not of the Supreme Court: Chief Justice John Roberts.
The proper title for the eight other members of the court is associate justice. When used as a formal title before a name, it should be shortened to justice unless there are special circumstances: Justice Clarence Thomas.

Internet of Things is used to describe devices, appliances, sensors and anything else with an internet connection, apart from traditional gadgets such as PCs and phones. Abbreviate as IoT.
It’s a technical term that should be avoided in stories for general readers.

For a partial quote, don't put quotation marks around words the speaker could not have used.
Suppose Cho said, "I am horrified at your slovenly manners."
Wrong: She said she "was horrified at their slovenly manners."

Use figures and hyphens for ratios: a ratio of 2-to-1, a 2-1 ratio, 1 in 4 voters. As illustrated, the word "to" should be omitted when the numbers precede the word "ratio."

The term "defund the police" often refers to taking funds from police departments to spend on other priorities such as employment programs, mental health services and social services to increase public safety. The term is sometimes misrepresented as abolishing police. Avoid using the term other than in a direct quotation; if used in a quotation, explain and provide detail about what is being sought.

09/14/2020

Use the term cross-dresser instead of the outdated term transvestite for someone who wears clothing associated with a different gender, and only when the subject identifies as such. Not synonymous with drag performer or transgender.

09/09/2020

The terms systemic racism, structural racism and institutional racism refer to social, political and institutional systems and cultures that contribute to racial inequality in areas such as employment, health care, housing, the criminal justice system and education. Avoid shortening this use to simply racism, to avoid confusion with the other definition (a doctrine asserting racial differences in character, intelligence, etc., and the superiority of one race over another, or racial discrimination or feelings of hatred or bigotry toward people of another race).

Some use the term racist to refer to anyone who benefits from systemic racism and doesn’t actively work to dismantle it. Avoid this use unless essential in a direct quotation; if used, explain it.

09/03/2020

The term minority is acceptable as an adjective in broad references to multiple races other than white in the United States. For example: We will hire more members of minority groups.

Be sure the term is accurate in each circumstance, since what constitutes a racial minority varies by location. Be specific whenever possible by referring to, for instance, Black Americans, Chinese Americans or members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Don't use minority as a noun in the singular. The plural minorities is acceptable when needed for reasons of space or sentence construction. But phrasing such as minority students or minority communities is preferable.

The term people of color is acceptable when necessary in broad references to multiple races other than white: We will hire more people of color. Nine playwrights of color collaborated on the script.

Be aware, however, that many people of various races object to the term for various reasons, including that it lumps together into one monolithic group anyone who isn’t white.

Be specific whenever possible by referring to, for instance, Black Americans, Chinese Americans or members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. For example: The poll found that Black and Latino Americans are bearing the brunt of the pandemic’s financial impact, not people of color are bearing the brunt of the pandemic’s financial impact. Most of the magazine’s readers are Black women, not most of the magazine’s readers are women of color.

In some cases, other wording may be appropriate. Examples: people from various racial and ethnic backgrounds; diverse groups; various heritages; different cultures.

Don't use the term person of color for an individual.

Don't use the term Black, Indigenous and people of color, which some see as more inclusive by distinguishing the experiences of Black and Indigenous people but others see as less inclusive by diminishing the experiences of everyone else. Similarly, do not use the term Black, Asian and minority ethnic.

Don't use the shorthand POC, BIPOC or BAME unless necessary in a direct quotation; when used, explain it.

Capitalize and use the spelling Vodou when referring specifically to the religion as it is practiced primarily in Haiti or among the Haitian community abroad. The spelling Voodoo has come to be seen as pejorative in those regions and should be avoided. However, the spelling Voodoo is commonly used and acceptable when referring to the religion as practiced in Louisiana. Avoid using either term as shorthand for magical or superstitious beliefs. For example, do not refer to voodoo (lowercase) economics unless essential in a direct quotation, or to voodoo rituals unless essential and with attribution and explanation.

Avoid the vague "officer-involved" for shootings and other cases involving police. Be specific about what happened. If police use the term, ask: How was the officer or officers involved? Who did the shooting? If the information is not available or not provided, spell that out.

Capitalize Gulf and Gulf Coast when referring to the region of the United States lying along the Gulf of Mexico. For example: Laura was not expected to weaken over land before moving into warm, deep Gulf waters that forecasters said could bring rapid intensification.

In stories about the U.S. Postal Service, retain capitalization of Postal Service in later references. Lowercase "the service" when it stands alone. Lowercase "post office" in generic references to the agency and to an individual post office. Avoid the shorthand USPS.

3G, 4G, 5G and LTE are acceptable on first reference, but should be explained in stories as cellular networks.

So, apparently this year (2020) the AP book decides that the color word "black" should be capitalized when referring to a certain race or ethnicity. In uses for Caucasians, the word "white" is not capitalized. It would seem proper that if a color word is being used as a descriptor for race, then either both should be capitalized, or both not. Isn't our culture now supposed to about equality?
I understand the change to capitalizing Black. Here is my problem (read this sentence). Some white people also live in Black and brown communities. I think when white, brown, and Black in one sentence is awkward looking. Is it ever acceptable to capitalize on all three?
Privileged? No. Fortunate? No. Lucky? No. I busted my ass since the age of 14 to get out of the ghetto and make something out of my life. At 17 I joined the Army because I made sure not to have a criminal record which would have disqualified me. I survived a broken family, gangs, drugs, alcohol, peer pressure, a murder attempt on my life, jealousy, and now the Democrats who support socialism, marxism, blm, and antifa. See what I did there. #walkaway
Once again Democrats are blaming Republican's instead of the criminal. Disgusting pigs is what they are. I'm "White".
