Political Correctness
Definition from Google. noun: the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against. A simple example: If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman. Is this offensive to the men doing the nicknaming? Is it offensive to others who might hear them? Does it matter? A more complex example: As reported in the media, in a memo to students sent out by West Virginia University (WVU), Title IX coordinator James Goins, Jr. declares that anyone who refuses to use a person’s preferred transgender pronouns is breaking federal law! A political example: Robert Litan, a Democrat, was fired from his left leaning think tank after delivering testimony against an Elizabeth Warren-backed Labor Department plan to regulate financial advisers. Half of House Democrats and virtually all Republicans in Congress oppose the plan because of its costs. Instead of rebutting his argument, Ms. Warren decided to punish it, he was fired from his think tank. One ridiculous example: Princeton University’s ‘Men’s Engagement Manager’, to rehabilitate men that are too masculine. Obviously there are many more, even more dramatic, examples of political correctness gone wild in our culture today. Political correctness can be best described as the opposite of or the enemy of truth.

Whoppi is Correct! We Are All Americans!

from The Gray Area:

I have for a long time believed the hyphenated-American labels are divisive tools of the politically correct culture and we should actively resist them. But, I never thought Whoppi Goldberg, on The View of all places would make this statement herself. She does not want to be called African-American. Obviously Whoopi is waking up. Maybe it will infect the rest of the View and their leftist audience. That may be a little too much to hope for, but miracles do happen, and I will pray for them.

Whoppi, good for you, you are correct!

Until the leftist PC police starting controlling language in this country, we were all Americans. It is time to call that practice out as harmful and divisive as Whoppi has done and stop it!

All you Asian-Americans, Gay-Americans, Italian-Americans, European-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Native-Americans, et al, should start right now calling ourselves and asking everyone to refer to us as AMERICANS.

You want a culture that believes we are all equal. Try that 'AMERICAN' label on for size again. We will all be better off for it.
