    I remember my days as a vertically challenged sanitation engineer asking my self: "Self, what exactly is political correctness?" I never got an answer.

    Re: Political Correctness

    It is all in the eye of the beholder. One group of people will say it is politically incorrect to criticize minorities. Another segment will say it is politically incorrect to criticize the troops.

    Everyone is politically incorrect in someone else's eyes.

    Sometimes but not always and not even generally. I was told by an African American lady that using the term black was racist and in the same conversation I was told by a black woman that using the term African American was racist because she was "black" Seriously... Not even I could make that **** up.

    When others tell you that you are saying things wrong or that saying black instead of African America makes you racist, or a bigot or sexist for other things, things are out of control.

    It is a classic Left Wing tactic. Attack the other side. Put them on the defensive and talk about them being a bigot instead of the actual issue. Pathetic.

    Is using the term 'retarded' to describe a mentally challenged person rude?
