Is this 'political correctness' gone mad?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)

In Canada, I have seen in the news there have been at least 3

And your point is...?

Hide if you want to, you won't live one minute longer. Fear profits a man nothing.

Yes, however what's more concerning is your mad overuse of ellipsis.

The problem is... the medication for it has an unpleasant... side effect...

It makes me write in... run-on sentences...

I figure it's six of one... a half dozen of the other, really...

Can't find the hidden meaning behind the words? Does it then make you feel like an incompetent turd? Always feeling like your mind is trapped out in left-field? Or that you have'nt an intellectual sword to wield.....

The intellectually lacking [stupid] need understanding too. Heck, you can call, infer and or point out stupidity all the time.And, it's deemed totally acceptable. Funny thing is, the genuinely stupid would never even know or care. Where are their advocates ?!?!

Sometimes I know it's hard to tolerate stupidity. Especially when its at times melded with arrogant, loud mouthed insulting behavior. But there a lot of folks in America that are making inroads to insuring this special type of dim wiitted stupidity will be great again..... They're called Republicans and especially those who back the Trump. Of course, and again IMHO.....

Belgian and French police today in a joint raid conducted in Brussels, searching for suspects in the deadly November 2015 terror attacks in Paris, France..shot dead Mohamed Belkaid, and wounded and arrested Salah Abdeslam..the prime suspect as ringleader of the Paris attacks. Several police officers were wounded in the ensuing shootouts..
I feel that the press should have been banned from reporting these names as they might give rise to "Islamophobia "..seeming middle East, Muslim names..

let's be all PC! All the time..

The attack on Brussels today was swift, as the arrest of Abdeslam was only a few days ago.
New York City, is almost on lockdown...heavy Police and Military presence on the streets, what are they expecting.
The NYPD, states they have informants with information of potential terrorist threats...so why don't they just arrest them for being associated with terrorists ?

Of course if it wasn't looked into and he did live in a terrorist house and something happened, then the same people complaining about PC would be complaining about nobody checking this out. Some people just hate pretty much everything that's done or not done or done in a way they don't like...

I saw something funny a couple of days ago...a guy was in court for some pretty serious charges, and was representing himself.
It look like he was annoying the Judge...he kept interrupting and ignoring his questions...the guy was wearing an ankle bracelet that give a stun gun shock...the Judge lost it and ordered the deputy to destroy the guy...and he did !!!

Now comes the part of responsibility and punishment...
Did the deputy have to follow the judges order, being that people...especially lawyers, are always in contempt of court...and have never been half killed for it...usually it's a $200.00 fine...so why this guy.

The Judge was charged with misdemeanor assault...but the big slice is he was...disbarred...yeah !!!

Of course, the stupid guy that was on trial is about to get paid instead of going to jail...yeah !!!

But I still have a problem with the deputy sheriff, carrying out an unlawful order...a judge cannot order someone to be deliberately struck, or injured...the deputy has to know that...so what should happen to him.

This is fantastic. Multi kulti eating itself. Not only traumatised by messages written in chalk it seems your sherman students are traumatised by hair. Now personally i think white folk with dreads look stupid. A pal of mine got dreads around 15 year ago. £300 it cost him. He went to the football and got slagged big time. Cheerio dreads.

But if white dafties with dreads are 'culturally appropriating' then are black folks not guilty of 'culturally appropriating' wearing kilts like samuel l jackson did in the film 51st state?

And technically going by how traumatised sherman students are about chalk and dreads did the black lassie no invade the ginger dreads geezers safe space by touching him and nodding her head?

Oor jo. If you are reading this whats your view? Because if as you say race does not exist then obviously you cannot 'culturally appropriate' anything.

Yous are worried about the donald yet these arseholes at your unis are your future. Lol brilliant. And see a homeless person who has hit rock bottom and has matted hair guilty of 'cultural appropriation'?

Saying that i can see the black lassies point. A ginger day walker with dreads in san fran the smug capital of shermanland. And surely black folks who go to church are 'culturally appropriating' as well no?



"Forget frat boys, transphobic feminists and Twitter trolls — the latest victims of modern PC madness are the wiggas. Those well-bred kids who like to don a do-rag, blast Fetty Wap and, worst of all, grow dreadlocks have been getting it both barrels of late.

Canadian popster Justin Bieber has recently found himself in the firing line. After unveiling his new dreaded fringe at the IHeartRadio awards last week, he’s been accused of ‘cultural appropriation’ – the mortal modern crime of daring to stray outside of your racial-cultural bracket.

Bieber’s got form here. Three months ago he set the offence-taking thinkpiece generators into overdrive when he revealed his new cornrows. Worse still, the teeny-bopper star caught flak for saying he ‘identified’ with black people, and even came to the defence of Kylie Jenner’s controversial braids. ‘Saying [Jenner’s] being racist because she has her hair in braids is ridiculous’, he said at the time.

And he spoke for every non-nutter everywhere when he met the latest round of scorn about his own dreads with the words, ‘It’s just hair’.

It all kicked into gear when a video surfaced online of a black San Francisco University student squaring off with a white, be-dreadlocked peer. Corey Goldstein, with a head full of natty ginge-tinged locks, is seen arguing in a stairwell with the girl, who accuses him of stealing her culture.

Goldstein, gesticulating like a suburban G-Unit fan, tells her where to go, adding that dreadlocks trace back to Ancient Egypt. The enraged student, identified as Bonita Tindle, asks him if he’s Egyptian, and things escalate. He tries to walk away, with an indignant ‘I don’t need your disrespect, yo’, but Tindle grabs his wrist.
The video has gone viral – and with good reason.

It’s a stark reminder of how the newfound obsession with offence-taking has re-racialised cultural life. The whingeing about cultural appropriation – whether it be Beyonce’s bindis or Iggy’s blaccent – has revived the idea that cultures should never mix, that they are assigned on the basis of skin colour.

This has been particularly potent on US campuses, where sections of middle-class minority students have embraced this nonsense as a way of shoring up victim points. At a campus conference in Washington, DC I attended last week, students wouldn’t stop going on about it. Donning bindis, bandanas, sombreros, you name it, were held up as ‘dehumanising’ acts of white theft.

So-called cultural appropriation isn’t only inevitable — it’s good. In the mixing of cultures, universalism blossoms. Goldstein’s hair or his affected slang may not be a shining endorsement for cultural exchange. But a little cloying wigganess is the price we pay for keeping culture a race-free zone.
There was something else to this scandal, too, which shouldn’t escape us. The backlash was almost as big as the original outrage.

Various reports have called Tindle a ‘thug’. Many refer to her wrist-grab as ‘assault’. And a petition has been launched to have her expelled from the college for ‘bullying’.

Not only is this the same sort of crybaby tactics the PC brigade itself routinely engages in, it also risks clouding the issue. The reaction to PC-gone-mad scandals is often personalised and petty. Just as, after the Tim Hunt scandal, fuming hacks spent months digging up dirt on Connie St Louis, the feminist academic with a liberal definition of the truth, so, too, has Tindle become a punching bag for anti-PC bloggers to get their moral rocks off.

They’re idiots, thrashing about in the vacuum left by grown-up politics. The idea of cultural appropriation is ridiculous – and we shouldn’t mince words in saying so.

Remember: politics shouldn’t be personal. After all, that’s what got us into this mess in the first place.

LMAO...the way people wear their hair is very personal, but I get what you're trying to say...white people should act like white people, which is sans dreadlocks...right !!!

Well, people tend to do what they want...I'd love it, if you Backpacker's would stop sticking ur chops in the Political business of the US...as if you have a say in it, you've made the case that there isn't much else to talk about...except how dreadful the food is there...I get that.

So I guess we all have to put up with something right.

What about the person who does what his/her boss tells them too, no matter what?

How about the student that does whatever his/her teacher tells them?

How about the offspring of some parents?

How about followers of certain religions?

During a battle, does the young soldier have the ability to understand that he is to follow any and all orders from those above him?

How about us, as individuals, in a society that are told what to do, and what not to do, according to a set of laws/rules made up by the powers to be?

What should we do with all those people that do what they are told?

The key words being "laws/rules". Those they obey unlawful orders and do illegal acts are as guilty as those that order the unlawful acts.

You're reaching a senseless conclusion !!!
Don't expand an issue so far out of the box that it ain't worth chasing...
You were given a real and specific, situation that actually happened...why not answer it instead of changing the narrative...if you saw the video...it's clear what happened so I don't understand your need to ignore the facts of this "specific" issue and replace it with senseless dribble.

That Deputy, was not obliged to follow that order...it was illegal, if he didn't know that...then he doesn't know his job.

They have to, at the very least fire him...but he should be charged with assault !!!!

The concept of "Cultural appropriation" is as ridiculous as saying that there is no such thing as race.

The lead woman in Divergent, Shalene Woodley, has a black grandmother. She is still white when she is getting a taxi. Just like Obama is black when he is getting one.

An interesting debate would have been how he can dread out for college and then cut his hair and enter society on one level and his black friend can cut his dreads but it won't have the same effect.

But not to allow a person to wear his or her hair however? And to claim that it is appropriating a culture? Ridiculous.

Who is "allowed" to wear a mowhawk? And maybe I shouldn't like Gnocchi. Or wear my hair like the Massai on vacation.

_----------------

On the tazing, they should fire both or neither, right?

I don't think that we should hunt down lowly nazzi guards but they do. Weren't they just following orders?

that whole thing was most likely staged for the camera & to post on Youtube..to make some kind of 'point'- perhaps even mocking extreme PC


Now personally i think white folk with dreads look stupid


as opposed to others with dreads? originally hair got like that when one didn't wash it for a few months..now most people who wear them likely have access to showers/baths?

^^^ Remember when we used to think "OMG, he's bald. What a homely old bald guy". Now bald is a fashion statement and even young guys with hair are shaving it off. And I agree, no one looks good in dread locks, it looks dirty, lazy and unkempt (and you could have just stepped out of the shower).

I know, it's just hair. As for culture - haven't we got past the "he/she is trying to "pass"? We in North America are such a "stew" of peoples of all colours, cultures, sizes, shapes and hair styles. Steal cultures?? How about we just respect them or try and understand them.

My point is simple.

If you need a law, and/or a rule to decide how to act, you are in big trouble, as an individual. Get enough individuals that need these laws/rules, and you now have exactly what you have now in our North American society. I ask some a couple of my friends that are in law enforcement, more than once, what is their "limit" when "ordered" to do a certain task, all within the "law". At what time do their beliefs/morals kick in? Or are they a slave to their paycheque like most of us in this day and age?????

Laws and rules are for those that like following them.

Me?????

I like playing with them.
