    I had no idea saying "African-American" instead of "nigger" was just like living under an oppressive police state.
    That is a unique term though... nigger IS racist. What I don't like AT ALL is that I was talking to some black people about race and was told that the term African American was racist. A few years later I was told by another group of blacks during a similar conversation that the term black was racist. WTF? Now I just say, "see that guy standing next to the white guy?"... but even then I was told that remarking on race is wrong. How do we quickly identify people then? They guy wearing the suit... no, the other guy, not that one... the one 5th from the left, wait, he is now 4th from the left.

    What it is doing is giving a whole other group of people the power to be assholes and attack people...

    What about when a person doesn't recognize there is a problem but solves it anyway?

    People freely criticizing you for what you freely said is more free speech, not less. All of this whining about political correctness is people who are used to being immune to criticism losing that privilege. They're used to not being required to show respect for people who aren't like them. But they're certainly used to others having to show respect for them. Congratulations on having to play by the same rules as everyone else. It's funny how much the privileged can't handle being just like everyone else.

    If a person doesn't recognize a problem why would they solve it?

    At college I had a similar experience. The professor was teaching about Institutionalized Whiteness and how it makes all white people racist by default. Well, I had the temerity to disagree. I was immediately set upon by the black professor and two black students. I was literally yelled at by the two in class. The professor eventually stepped back and just seemed so content. I tried a few times to be reasonable but it was futile. After about ten minutes of idiocy I just left. They taunted me with insults about race and morality. I withdrew from the course that day.

    Not why... ...why is irrelevant. If a person solves a problem without recognizing that there is a problem... it is still solved.

    .



    If a problem is solved it is no longer a problem, so why call it a problem, eh?

    I was just making a point to your statement.

    No one can solve any problem until they first recognize that a problem exists.

    This isn't really accurate. That's all...
