Political correctness has gone too far!!!at 23:51 - 7th, February 2009
When I read this clip from the Vancouver SUN I found myself wondering how we've become so anal about being political correct. I think we have gone too far!
Political Correctness Update: In November, the student association at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, voted to eliminate a cystic fibrosis organization from the list of charities it supports, explaining that since the condition almost exclusively afflicts white people, it was not "inclusive" enough to merit student funding. [Vancouver Sun, 11-25-08]
In December, Britain's Oxford University Press announced the latest changes in its highly selective Junior Dictionary, finding room to add dozens of words, including trapezium, alliteration and incisor but eliminating, for example, bishop, chapel, christen, minister, monk, nun, parish, psalm and saint. The publisher said the changes reflect Britain's "multicultural, multifaith" society. [Daily Telegraph (London), 12-8-08]

being a white male i'm terribly afraid of where we're going as a society.
i called it way back when i was a kid and used to watch these talk shows on tv like the sally show, morry povich. it was going to be bad to be a white male because the world (or at least the viewers) regarded the male who was usually white as the bad guy.
anyway, i try to be as un-pc as possible. i think things like this are just idiotic.

I know.. people are trying to be toooooo correct.. I have quite a few black friends and they are insulted by a lot of the political correctness. They say it brings more negative than positive actions.
