Host of Good Morning America, Amy Robach, has to grovel and eat dirt because she said “colored people” on the air, during her ABC show this week (8-22-16). She says that she meant to say “people of color” and that she doesn’t normally use that other expression. It was an oopsie.
Political correctness is an amazing thing. The term “people of color” (denoting people belonging to color) has become a good term and “colored people” (denoting people who have or possess color) has become the most heinous insult, that a person has to beg forgiveness for uttering the term.
Personally, I would prefer to think of color belonging to me, rather than me belonging to color, because I am clinging to the concept that I’m still a free individual.
From the standpoint of logic, political correctness doesn’t make sense at all. This is why it’s so hard for people to adhere to the rules.
The purpose of political correctness is to dissolve local and community relationships and leave everyone with only one dependent relationship with the government.
Think of what you could be inventing, creating, and producing to help yourself and others in the time it takes you to remain cognizant of the ever changing rules of political correctness.
