The Question Club
|Do you think society is becoming too politically correct?
I feel that "pulling out the race card" has been become more common...in livejournal posts, in real life, when I'm dealing with customers.
How do you feel about that?
What about the people who use their gender, sex, body type, occupation, income?
Like in..."You think you can kick me around because I'm a plumber/garbage man/accountant!"
1) I'm not sure. That's why I asked for your opinions!
Though I do feel like everyone has to fight with every little issue...so the Pledge of Allegiance(US) has the word God in it. Big deal! We have other issues we need to worry about. Don't say it, if it bothers you. It's your choice.
2) Like I get really SICK of people saying to me "You're ignoring me because I'm *Black/White/Polkadotted/Fat/Ugly*!".
I try my damnest not to discriminate, and I feel like the "race card" has become an acceptable means of getting what you want these days.
Apparently everyone is too sensitive, and too immature to simply answer my question.
I asked a question regarding dealing with a customer, at my job.
This post was not an excuse for you to jump on my case, because I'm a "priviledged white girl".
You don't know a person by the color of their skin, or where they come from.
I think we can all attest to that.
I'm closing this post because I have homework, and I can't be e-fighting with every sensitive person out there, who wants to blame me for society's problems.
**please don't start this into a debate. i tried to word this as best as i could.
