Political Correctness

Ok, so we started this in another thread, but I'm making a thread just for this topic. TRY to keep it somewhat civil and under control or I'll enlist the help of a mod and have this locked up quicker than Saddam when he got caught.

Personally, I think political correctness is a load of ****. It's what happens when someone cannot handle freedom of speech. It's what happens when people can't handle the truth. I hate it.

Let's take an example here. It's politically incorrect for me to call a Native American an injun...at least according to my American History teacher. I said Injun in class, and was sent to the hall, got a detention, and finally an office referral for saying it. But, if that same person, or anyone who isn't white for that matter, called me a cracker, nothing would be done about it. Bull**** I say.

Nextly, we have the matter of being politically correct and calling people African Americans, Native Americans, European Americans, and all sorts of bull**** like that. What if the person isn't even ****ing from Africa? What if they're black but they came from Jamaica? They might be offended by being called African American. And I don't understand why we can't call people by color without them being offended. You call me white, it's true, I am white last time I checked. If I call you black, I'm just saying the color of your skin. I am in NO WAY judging you based on the color of your skin, nor am I thinking less of you because you're black/brown/yellow/orange/green/platypus.

While I'm on the topic of political correctness, I'd also like to address reverse racism. This kind of goes along with what I was talking about earlier. If I call a black guy a "nig" I'm labelled racist. Why is that? He can call me a cracka, his friends call each other nigs, and I can't call him a nig? Why the hell not?

This is also a good time for me to talk about reparations and **** for slavery. I DIDN'T OWN YOU NOR DID I OWN YOUR ANCESTORS. Ever heard of forgive and forget? I had no say in slavery. I didn't beat your ancestors to get them to pick my cotton. I honestly didn't. Nextly, there are MANY more people who were slaves longer than blacks. Jews come to mind. 2000 years ago Jews were slaves in Egypt. They don't ***** now and demand reparations. Jews don't demand reparations for the Holocaust. Why? They realize that it was the PAST AND IT IS OVER AND YOU CANNOT CHANGE IT.

[/rant]

tl;dr - **** YOURSELF.

yeah, we treat em all like **** for centuries now we get the big stiff one.

what i hate is when people try to be politicaly correct that they are making choices and decisions based on someones race..

like they are doing something and think, oh better not do this, that black dude'll get pissed.. theyre still making a decision based on his race.. so really they are still people racist and taking note of differences..

gah.. i just treat everyone like ****

Political correctness is stupid. you know, you should have stood up against your teacher...or something. I'm sure you did and i don't know the situation well, but i would have. I "spit" (don't take it literally) in teachers faces when they try and pull that

Just to be clear about this... race doesnt exist... race is something humans made up to generalize people, kinda why jamacians can be called african-americans. The only thing that exists is ethnicity. with that in mind lets pick apart your generlizations.

your teacher deserves to be fired. Thats bull****. Are you telling the whole truth? did the teacher ask you not to say and you delibratly fight him? I am sure there is 2 sides to this story.

Because free speech is limited... if it offends someone, then you are not allowed by law to say it. Laws state that when you harass someone, you have lost your right to free speech.

Jews did demand repartions... they *****ed to the UN and got Israel.

Polotical Correctness allows us to express ourselves without legally encroching on someone else. Its a safe set of boundaries that we dont have to worry about breaking laws using. With that in mind, many of my black friends have no problem with me calling them black, as long as i dont use it in a demeaning way (ex: "Hey, black guy"). You generalized the mass majority as people who want you to follow the rules 100%. Thats not the truth. many people in the US dont give a flying **** how you refer to them as long as you arnt demeaning.

I get called a cracker all the time by black people so me and my friends who are white call each other crackers. Just like they call each other nigg-ers.

But we get in trouble, they don't.

****ing Bull****.

anyways, the "n-word" didn't used to be duragatory, it was just what they called them, like we call them "african americans" even if they aren't from africa. but retards began using it a a slam, so now black people call themselves and each other that...

yeah, doesn't make sense to me either

I hate political correctness, but another peeve is the whole.. "why can't i call a black guy a "nig" if he can call me a cracka." How about stepping up and being a man, and not calling him a "nig." The world would be a better place if we would all step up instead of begging to be allowed to move down in the chain of being an asshole.

And homeboy is right about the Jews and reparations. Even in WWI, the WORLD got reparations through the Treaty of Versailles. And The part where he said once you harass somebody, you lose your rights of free speech. That's basically true. It's like homeless people, they can beg on public property, until they get in the way and harass people. In Cali, offending somebody like that can basically be an Assault. I think people need to stop being so sensative, but I think the rest of people need to stop being so offensive just to piss people off.

Most of your other points I agree with. African-America, Euro-American, and all that stuff annoys me. If somebody wants to be called that way, that's fine. But assuming that everybody should be called that for PC niceness... I don't like it.

I fought it after he said I couldn't say it. I asked him what happened to my 1st amendment rights, and he said I didn't have any. I said that that was BS because this summer I would be allowed to join the military (which I am) but I won't be able to call someone an injun. I asked him how that worked and he sent me out in the hall. He came out to plead his case even more, and being the stubborn **** that I am, I fought even more. He sent me to the office, where I finally won with my First Amendment argument.

Just don't say nig ger in front of black people and you'll be fine. Also, act comfortable around everyone. That's as politically correct as anyone on earth needs to be. I make racist jokes and think it's hilarious. I'm far from racist though and get along with almost everybody...even the black dudes who looked like they were about to rob the gas station I asked for directions at in Detroit at 1:30 in the morning. Just stay nice, don't worry about the hippies that think they're better then you.


Or be a racist piece of ****. Either way, don't let hippies bother you.

Well, I argued my First Amendment rights with my history teacher. He was obviously backed into a corner, but didn't want to let me win. I was then sent to the office, where I fought for my first amendment rights even more. What got them was when I said "So, I'm joining the military this summer to fight for that very freedom which you are trying to take away from me and you're saying I can't say what I want in school? That's BS. Oh, and by the way, if you take any action against me, I WILL fight this to the very bitter end." Since my school doesn't like legal action, since we're one of the top 10 public schools in the Nation, they backed down, fearing that I would ruin their record.

it doesnt piss me off most of teh year, but during christmas time, wait, that might offend other religions,ok, during "the holidays", wait, that might offend an athiest.

ok, "during that time of year where its cold and snowy when you buy eachother presents and the heathens set up a tree in thier house", i notice all this political correctness crap


and thats what it is, its crap. some might want to call it christaphobia. you see a cross in grocery store and for some reason it offends you, bite your tounge and go light your manora extra bright that night. go to school and see a santa clause and it offends you? bite your tounge adn do whatever you kwanza people do.


this is a country that was founded on religous tolerance and freedom, yet its now unacceptable to show your faith in christ


the idea for political correctness was obviously brought up by someone who hated life and wished to make everyone else hate life also

Ok, our school has 1, yes 1, "African American" enrolled. At lunch I sat down and said "What up niggies", well that racist insult got me a detention.

This is complete crap. I am in no way a racist, and by saying that now I am?

I say **** em. They have no right to tell me what I believe and take away my 1st amendment rights.

I am a god damn american citizen. I should be able to say what I want, when I want. And some fat dude shouldn't be able to censor me.
