    Today, some California university forbid the phrase..."America is the land of opportunity" ....can't be used by professors because it might cause micro-aggression. KMA crazies.

    I have long held the belief that PC had made things worse, and not better, for the simple reason that those feelings are now all bottled up, and when they do come out, they explode into whatever form they take.

    Ya, you guys are right.

    Everyone should be able to call mentally ill children- RETARDED, and handicapped people - CRIPPLES, and blacks N-66-rs, and mexicans- beaners, and asian people- gooks or japs....

    The world would be a better place, but that darn Political Correctness just gets in your way.

    Good thing you live in the sticks, you wouldnt survive a week without a black eye in a large metropolitan suburb with ideas like you have.

    There are a lot of PC things that are asinine, those things are just common decency.

    Is your knee out of joint, since it seems to keep jerking?

    How about the Redskins mess, and TV outlets saying the Wasington team.

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    Funny how they are targeting the REDSKINS.

    Are they going after the Braves, Browns, Vikings and other ethnic minority named teams too?

    My daughter attends UCLA, and is studying law. Now in her third year. This story is such CRAP it isnt even funny.

    But it goes to show how the geriatric fox news crowd will believe any suggestion placed in front of them.

    You can't deny the truth of that news. Just deflect and attack the sources (which weren't even Fox) as usual from you.

    University of California faculty leader-training handout instructed professors not to say that “America is the land of opportunity” because that’s a racist, sexist microaggression.

    According to the handout, called “Tool: Recognizing Microaggressions and the Messages they Send,” the statement “assert that race and gender [do] not play a role in life's successes"
    despite the fact that saying opportunities exist and saying that opportunities are more easily attainable for some people than others are not mutually exclusive assertions.
    Other microaggressions listed on the document include asking, “Where are you from or where were you born?” (because it suggests that the person you’re asking is “not a true American”); asking a post-doctoral minority student whether he or she is lost in the halls of a chemistry building (because it makes ”the assumption that the person is trying to break into one of the labs”); and having students fill out forms on which they have to check a box indicating whether they’re male or female.

    Without a doubt an example of the stupidity of political correctness. Which is what TOS wanted to see (yet still refuses to open his eyes to notice).
