Leave it to the AP to keep on finding new ways to completely and totally embarrass itself. It would appear they would ‘recommend’ writers do away with the harmful label, ‘the’. So you know, there is no the there.
Anywho, their explanation for why they want this horrific label removed is that it is dehumanizing.
Take a look for yourselves.
We recommend avoiding general and often dehumanizing “the” labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated. Instead, use wording such as people with mental illnesses. And use these descriptions only when clearly relevant.

Just to be clear, instead of saying "The French" I should say "people with mental illness"?
