Something that, through social activity, proves that the United States citizens are slowly losing their freedoms. It is also a joke to try to use weasel words so to make sure nobody gets offended when, in the end, everything still is the same. Political correctness is also targeted only selected groups, which shows it's just another political play with racism and hatred.
Political Correctness in action...
Normal person: "That new movie 1408 looks good, plus it has good actors in it, too. I think that Samuel L. Jackson is one of the best black actors in Hollywood."
Politically correct person: "What?! How dare you use the B-word?! He's not the bad B-word, he's African American."
Normal person: "Um...o...k. Anyway, I also like John Cusack. He's one of my favorite white actors in Hollywood."
Poltically correct person: "Yeah, he's a pretty good actor."

Political Correctness: A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
Hey barkeep, I'd like an African-American Russian, please.
Barkeep: Look, your political correctness is a little extreme, don't you think?

A phenomena perpetuated by politicians, mainly liberals, with the purpose of eliminating stereotypes. This stems from the fact that words now become occasionally associated with negative images. For example: Mexican denotes an illegal immigrant who works for below-minimum wage and doesn't speak English; Black means that a person is on welfare and is a gang member; White conjures the image of someone who is rich, uppity, fake, and wimpy; Southern describes a person as a stupid racist redneck; and Crippled is associated with someone who is old and cannot contribute to society. Ultimately it is a well-intentioned, but nonetheless bad, idea. It is a bad idea because if we start referring to people as "Caucasian" or "African American" then those words will begin to be associated with the same images that "White" and "Black" were. Another reason it will not work is because it tries to change people's thought processes and people generally don't like it when their heads are messed with. It treats people like they are children who don't understand. The third reason it is a terrible idea which will fail is because it is nonsensical: I know several black people who were born in Africa and should be called African Americans. But if a black person is born in England and moves to America would they be called African Americans? Or what about a white person born in Africa? Black Americans or simply Black should be what they are called. In short, Poltical Correctness is an unintelligent idea taken too far.
Boss utilizing Political Correctness: "Hello its nice to meet you Mr. Clancy. It's good to have an African-American on the team here at our store."
Mr. Clancy: "Sir I was born and raised in England, I'm not African and I'm not American you can just call me black."

10 Years into the future: "Okay class now lets read about the United Statesian Revolution and how the Amer- I mean United Statesians defeated the British."

Often, the biggest defenders of free speach are the liberals. In the case of political correctness (PC) the liberals are killing the 1st amendment. PC is an idea to replace everything that could be considered "ofensive" (whether they are or not) with a more complicated term that may or may not be more offensive (midget-vertically challanged/dwarf or retarded-mentally challanged). Some of the most used PC terms are racial (African American, Hispanic American, Caucasian American, Native American etc)Why can't we all just be Americans?
political correctness is really idiotic way to make sure no one ever has a reason to be angry about anything. Half the time anger brings upon social reform. Alot like Newspeak. PC also makes it almost imposible to give a personel opinion. The Nazis also used a form of PC (they "dealt with the Jewish problem")
