You are being a bit dishonest here. Political correctness isn't a law, it's a social convention. Political correctness did not restore oppressed people's rights, the law did. Either the courts found previous laws unconstitutional, and they were repealed, or new laws were passed. That is why things are different now, political correctness is a much newer concept that has to do with how you behave in society, not what laws a person is subjected to.
Not only does this give credit to political correctness that it doesn't deserve, it takes credit away from the actual physical changes that were made to better things in this country.

a reply to: mahatche Well that's good for you, but go to a time before political correctness and things would have certainly been different. homosexuality was a crime up unil the 60s you know
en.m.wikipedia.org... so maybeThanks to those who came before you, allows you to be so blasé about political correctness today or would you rather it still be a crime today?

It's to divide us even further. To distract us from important issues with manufactured crises so we focus our energy on "changing" those situations while ignoring what's really against us.
