oversensitivity about words, and confusion over the use of language. being unable to understand the concept of context. bothe liberals and conservatives are just as guilty: liberals come up with retarded, complicated terms for minorities (calling a person African-American who's never been to Africa and doesn't know the culture), while if you mention the downsides and and hypocrisies of a religion or its followers, conservatives will never cease riding your ass. cons also tend to get sore about four letter words (fuck, shit) that only substitute subtler terms.
I am black, and don't see how that term is offensive.

how is a little four letter word like "fuck" going to hurt anyone?

Get the political correctness mug.
a platonic ideal, an abstraction, a form, an eternal immaterial underlying reality. Political correctness is an ideal whose standards are so unrealistic that no one has ever met them and all instances we encounter in this material world of it are but deformed and imperfect copies of that ideal. No novel is politically correct. No play is politically correct. No poem. No film. No song. No speech. No president. No talk show, organization or law is perfectly politically correct. And yet we are still punished for failing to meet its ungodly demands.
Shakespeare, Milton, Plato, Kant, D.H. Lawrence and Homer are but a few names in the hall of shame of political incorrectness. So what chance does an average Joe have of ever demonstrating pure political correctness?

Can be considered pejorative. noun, A term used earliest by American conservatives to neutralize discussions on prejudice in the United States. Used to imply political rights are being taken away from the speaker by the target. Target is implied to be an authoritarian no matter whether or not any actual rights are abridged, thusly most occurrences of the term are used in straw man arguments.
A: You dirty wop.
B: Hey, you're racist!
A: That's political correctness! You're trying to take away my 1st Amendment rights!
B: You're dumb. I'm calling you out, that's all.
A: And thusly, you're more of a racist, than I am!

Get the political correctness mug.
A mental disorder characterized by a fierce self-loathing to the extent that the person wrongly assumes all other cultures and races are superior to his own. Political correctness should be more accurately called political cowardice because people who comply with PC rules ignore facts just to avoid confrontation. Confrontation is what is needed in many cases to facilitate a frank and honest discussion of problems that are facing our nation and society.
Michael Moore is an example of Political Correctness. He's the idiot that wrote a book titled "Stupid White Men" when in fact he is one of the stupidest white men around. He obviously hates himself and has good reason for that. He would do us all a favor by just killing himself instead of criticizing everyone else.

Terms such as Asian-American and African-American are meaningless because Asia and Africa are huge continents containing many countries and people of many races. When black Algerian youths were burning cars in Paris some idiot reported referred to them as African-American. How stupid is that?
