    Political Correctness

    Real or not... some think it isn't and they are generally the ones guilty of being Politically Correct.

    Thoughts....

    Re: Political Correctness

    retarded. Mentally challenged. Mentally handicapped. Handicapped. Hand-able. Black. African American. American. Etc. It is all bull****.

    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.

    does the term African america exist? then yes its real

    now dont get me wrong PC most certainly has its rightful place but like many things people find ways to abuse it and use it for personal gain one way or another.

    As a politician (and some job settings maybe) i totally get using African american but in real life that is not needed at all. For example if me and you were at the mall Bodhi and you said hey I like that guys hat and I asked what guy and you said him right there, that African american. i laugh at you and punch you in the arm for being stupid LOL

    I agree theres nothign racist about saying black at all in itself and people that say otherwise are part of the problem

    also mentally retarded . . . sorry but retarded has an actually definition and many things can be retarded, not to mention when i was young THAT WAS the PC term mentally retarded

    Yep. If you don't follow the script and do and say what's "acceptable", you'll find your life and livelihood in jeopardy. It's a way of controlling the message and shutting down your opponents. People who engage in it aren't interested in honest discussion or finding solutions, just silencing those who disagree with them

    Political correctness is the term rude narcissists use to describe manners.
