What does it mean when we talk about politically correct? In the United States we are changing Mascots and tearing down statues that have been erected years ago because people feel that it is being offensive to a certain group. But is this really the answer to eliminate hate in the world? We cannot change history, but should we ignore it and hide ourselves away from the truth of our ancestors and learn from their mistakes? It is true that understanding different cultures and respecting others is the key to having a peaceful society. But is society having everyone so nervous of offending someone that we are in constant state of fear and confusion that something we say or do will not be “politically correct”? What message are we giving to children when we teach about being “politically correct” and we are confused ourselves about how to say things as to not to offend others? Thoughts?
