I'm personally a supporter of political correctness. Mainly because the main reason behind it is to prevent people from becoming offended/upset/ or attacked and I fully support that.

It can go too far...but I to admit to being a very PC person. I hate any kind of attack on a race, religion, culture, etc...I know people who aren't PC hate that stuff as well, but I think political correctness is in general a good thing.

I've never understood why political correctness is attacked so much?

If it gets out of hand, as it sometimes does, then I see why some people are annoyed by it. But I honestly feel that political correctness is a good thing. I hate the idea of any kind of race/culture/minority getting offended or feeling attacked.

I think what should really be criticised is the prejudices that caused political correctness to come about in the first place.

Of course people can take political correctness too far and then it can become a bit ridiculous...but when someone takes it too far, it ceases to be political correctness and turns into something silly.

Political correctness itself is a good thing in my opinion.

Political correctness can and does go too far. There are many people who are offended over EVERYTHING, and the world shouldn't have to bend over backwards to please them. The crybabies of the world should all go live on an island somewhere, just so they can bitch, moan and cry their lives away. That's all they do anyway, and I'm sick of listening to them.

^ It's just that some people are WAY too thin-skinned. Having said that, I do not condone racism, sexism, etc. at all.

Oh I know!

That's why I added the cherry topping - just to add that extra sweetness to make it sickeningly sweet! :P

It can go too far, but when it does, it's not really political correctness any more.

Political correctness as I see it is a set of standards that ensure that people from all races, religions, cultures, etc, are viewed as and treated equally.

That may still be impossible for now but maybe in the future there will be no such thing as prejudice.

I do consider myself a very politically correct person. I'm quite proud to be.

Would you have read anything into an orange cake with the name of an old movie?

I agree, I try to be sensitive, but when it comes to that it gets crazy imo. If a black gal were to bake it, would it make any difference?
Something like that would just NEVER cross my mind in a million years. Maybe I'm just sheltered, but .....wow.

We're all in agreement that there's no place for racism in our society. Political Correctness isn't just about that. I'm referring to instances where kids can't sing a religious song in a Christmas play, such as Silent Night. I'm referring to the time when some lady barked at me in a video store because she overheard me refer to a movie as a Black Comedy, which is a commonly used term. I guess it has to be "Dark Comedy" now, until people who are afraid of the dark start complaining. I'm referring to stores who won't use the word Christmas in their advertising so as not to offend those of other faiths, even though they're targeting the dollars of a LOT of Christians who celebrate Christmas. There's the Santa recruitment firm (for Malls) who claim that Santa saying, Ho, Ho, Ho, is offensive to women. There's those who constantly place the race card, pulled from the bottom of the deck.

that's another instance of people treating the black race as if it's sacred, even if their intent is just to "prevent racism" rather than glorify blacks. blacks have to be treated with all this extra respect. they have to be referred to as "african americans" because "blacks" is totally degrading and offensive, but you can never describe an individual as being black or african american (only large groups), because that means that it's the only thing you notice about them, and therefore you're judging them, and therefore you're a racist.

it's the same way with other things too. according to society, women have to be treated with more respect than men. if, for example, people see a woman punching a man, they'll think "YOU GO GIRL! SHOW HIM WHO'S BOSS!" and if it's the other way around, they'll think "OMG DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!"

people are too sensitive about homophobia too, even though discrimination in this case is a widespread issue. if anyone merely states that gay marriage is wrong or that homosexuality is a choice, they get jumped all over and called a homophobic bigot, even if they said absolutely nothing about their opinion of gays. i've seen it happen on this board way too many times.

blacks are above whites, women are above men, and gay people are above straight people. so much for the "equality" that everyone claims to be aiming for. it's sickening.

I prefer the term "African American" to "black." But my reason for that is because I think "African American" sounds more fancy and sophisticated than "black." Maybe that's just me being a snob?

But being a rather wordy person, I prefer African American, I just think it sounds better.
