I don't approve of racism, but I hate PC people. I think part of our nature is to be bigoted, to some extent. Also, people who claim that there are no norms annoy me. if this is the case, then why do we have structures? Don't structures necessitate norms?

PC is a form of censorship.

Political Correctness,
is an oxymoron,
of the highest degree.

Of course we have biases and preferences... the key is to see them.... not cover them with PC platitude bullshyt.....


I don't like prejudgements.... I don't like anything that narrows a person and puts them in a box...

It's why we need to see it and be aware of it.......

Many cultures keep to their own kind. Many do not mix. Many want to retain their culture and heritages. So bigoted is a weird word to use.

Yes, structure and culture are what make various nations and groups what they are. People say Diversity, but then they shut down any forms of retaining one's own culture. They say Multiculturalism, but they mean Uniculturalism.

I have seen for years - black pride, asian pride, red pride even gay pride.
As soon as you say white pride you are labeled a racist.

Wow.
You might want to look up definitions for words before you use them.
Have preferences, of course. We all do.
Not everyone is a bigot.

Ummm shouldn't this be in the politics forum? What does this have to do with relationships? Unless you're talking about interracial dating or something.

No phrase is more PC than claiming to be politically incorrect. 1993 is over. As for diversity, what is so bad about ships and Civil War history? I find history fascinating, it is not everyone's cup of tea, but why knock it?
