    They might hurt the unstable or irrational but for most of us who are intelligent, they don't mean a thing.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

The issues rampant in impoverished African american communities are few centuries deep and entrenched. You threw a whole lot of issues into one bag and left it at that. I'm sure you have never given any of them real thought or contemplation. You just see it as "intrinsic African Issues".

    I can't speak for everyone. I don't expect that of you or anyone. I expect an honest discussion. One that is not sabotaged by glorified stereotypes.
    The simple fact of the matter is that it is basically impossible to have any kind of honest discussion on these issues, precisely because the "P.C." thought police won't allow it. For that reason, it is equally impossible to enact any kind of meaningful reform.

    At least half of the establishment in this country, and a majority of academia, actually like things exactly as they are now. The class and racial conflicts they are responsible for instigating are some of the major things which keep them in positions of power and influence.

    They just wish that they could find a way to get an even larger portion of the population hooked on what they're selling.

    You ignored the homosexual one. Though I'm not surprised. That's honest observation of mine about your position on the topic. I do think you are Homophobic if after all the years you have been on this forum discussing that same issue and in face of all the sources I know you have been given to you have not budged an inch.
    If we were get started on homosexuality now, we'd be here all week.

    I don't think it was words that caused anything in Columbine. The firearms in the hands of unstable people, that was.

    Two spoiled psychos caused the Columbine Massacre. Even bullying consist of more than mere words, its causes are from children with no discipline or empathy.

    There's quite a difference between not saying things that you know will offend others and being afraid to say anything at all for fear that someone, somewhere, just might possibly be offended. That's the difference between polite society and political correctness.

    The columbine massacre was caused by bullying. The two killers where notably bullies prior. Not that I condone their actions in any way. But there was a cause and effect that led to it.

    No it wasn't, people are bullied every day and don't go shooting up their schools. It was caused by unstable people.

    Indeed. Most normal people wouldn't either. That lasted until some sicko lefty made it part of a point to diminish, harm, minimize, and marginalize valid and well expressed criticism of the federal government, not on the basis of their position, but through derision of the person. Ad Hom.

    The killers cited verbal abuse as part of their reason for their rampage.
    And that's just one example.

    I'm sorry, were the columbine massacre killers part of a public conversation?

    Their motivations was that they couldn't take anymore bullying. You are lying if you think that being PC stops bullying. PC is the most perverse form of bullying. It's the bullying into silence of all people who don't speak in the way that is approved by the PC police. If you dare to say something that the PC crowd don't find agreeable, they will say the most hateful and despicable things to you and call you all sort of things. And unlike child bullying which make, albeit hateful fun, of one another, PC bullying sticks. PC crowd bully with words that have social stigma attached to them.

    So do dare say that PC encourages peaceful cooperation and discussion is dishonest as hell. It encourages the same gang mentality as bullying, only the words and methods are somewhat different.

    Case and point. That fat guy who played in The Wolf of Wall Street said "Suck my dick faggot" and had to go a tour on morning talkshows to beg and plead and crawl. Apologize for insulting some asshole paparazzi. Why? because he was afraid the PC police would come after him, as they did on twitter, calling him a homophobe and whatever.

    So the PC police are the worst bullies only they're the most perverse ones too because they think they're doing good and the right thing, unlike normal bullies who just aren't thinking or aren't mature enough to understand what they're doing.
