    I Can't Keep Up With It...

     One minuet somethings acceptable, the next its not, then it is again... At work we are no longer allowed to do a nativity scene as our Christmas play, so as not to leave out or offend people from other religions.... Its ridiculous.

    I Think That People Just Need ...

    I think that people just need to live their lives the way that they want to as long as it is morally correct. What is the point in being politically correct. Most of the political thing that I know and understand are a crock anyway.

    You Are a Minority

    I don't get it. Why, in our culture, are minorities so coddled? By this I refer to every minority ranging from a minority as small as you--the individual you happen to be uniquely--and as large as the entire group of Jews residing in America. I recently read a news article...

    No Such Thing As Multi-culturalism!

     In my view, this political correctness is so one sided and people have learnt to play the race card because of it. I saw on the news a while back that a woman who worked for British Airways was asked not to wear her Cross because it could cause offence to other religions...

    I don't like all that stuff. I don't like how every race is now refered to as (blank)-American, that is so stupid. I don't call myself a german-american, I say I'm just a white guy. Now if people get offended cause I say they are black, white, or whatever than I think that they...

    It has come to the point that even a PB&J sandwich can be considered to have racist undertones. No, seriously Google it. It happened in Portland, OR about a month ago. A principle literately had a fit over a teacher using PB&J as a common food item. She now is pushing for the...

    What is the purpose of everyone being politically correct all the time?  To keep from hurting someones feelings.  That's about it, too.  So we, as a people, a nation, lose our freedom of speech because speaking American may hurt someones feelings.  Bull-Sh!t...

    The thing about 'politically correctness' that irritates me is that its just another way to cover up racism and stereotypes by putting a pretty name on it. To quote: People think that using bigger words and talking slower will change the meaning of what they're saying...

    Sometimes they can be, political correctness sometimes makes big issues out of stuff not meant to be a big issue. Sometimes they're used to mask prejudice or offensive opinion into a polite and seemingly harmless remark.
