I would never call anyone anything that might possibly offend them, even though it goes against my nature, but.. you know what?
It's unfair to the rest of us who aren't "politically correct" and are unsure how to talk to someone of short stature - or anyone who has some
form of ailment. We don't know if that black guy over there is cool with us saying the N-word around him or not, so we just don't do it, unless we
become bros and it suddenly becomes OK to do it, for SOME reason.
I get the feeling people just like to argue. Sure, people can play the race card all they want, but when they're with friends and family, they can
talk all the racist stuff they want.
I'm Russian, so when acquaintances or strangers make references to vodka and potatoes, I don't get offended. I laugh, cuz it's actually funny, just
as if a family or friend said it.. so why do others have to enforce political correctness on everyone? You aren't really educating so much as
isolating, in my opinion.
Instead, people should stop being so sensitive, and get to laughing at themselves first.
...jeez, this almost deserved it's own thread.
