There is no such thing as racism
This thread gives me hope that political correctness might die soon. I hope it happens in every household at he same time and everyone is reading how some douche got offended at this word or that and frustration reaches the tipping point and we all shout a unified "F this!!". Then we all run out in the street and I will say "I am a half breed honky kike!!" and my neighbor will say "Sup honky kike, I am a negro!!" and we will run down the street arm in arm screaming "I'm a negro lovin Jew!! I'm a negro lovin Jew!!" surrounded by everyone else who has had enough of this garbage and they will be screaming their own no-longer-offensive phrases and all the hippie's hackey sacks will fall into the gutter, and the world will heal.
Some of us never bought into the whole PC notion to start with. Just seems wimpy and sissified to worry about every little thing one says, because somebody may get their little feelings hurt.---I say grow up, and get over it---say something back, if you don't like what is being said. No requirement to just take it.
"Don't be particular bout nothin, but the company you keep"
What doesn't work in the real world is thinking you have the right not to be offended. I have manners and I am very respectful, but only when dealing with people who I think deserve it. That is my judgment call and my choice. Thank God the United States is not a moderated board.
