The Banshee and The Iced Coffee

Image by Renée Ann Wirick via FlickrFirst the Banshee (scroll down for the coffee recipe): I now know the true dominance of my genetics. I suppose in a sense it’s a small bit of relief. Or, not so much. The last three days have been […]

Racism is a word used quite often. The word itself can evoke a whole litany of reactions. Most have a visceral repulsion to it. The past will continue to haunt us if we cannot control both our intolerance for each other and the politically correct mess we have created.

The political correctness has an unfortunate choke hold on society. We are so afraid to offend, some never really talk. What most people don’t seem to grasp is the fact that people make huge amounts of money off of this. People will stir the tension pot, sue and make a ton of money.

I cannot agree with the depths that things have gotten to. At first, it seemed almost logical. If people couldn’t be civil,then they would have to be forced to be civil. Yet, the people out there with the true intolerance aren’t effected at all. Instead everyday people who made some kind of distasteful joke, comment, or something else are effected.

Take the “God Hates” everyone group. They are protected by the law, they have also the first amendment on their side. Then take a look at what happened with
Imus. Seems rather off to me. I am fully aware the difference, one is a morning talk host, the other homophobic lawyers.

Although different, the outrage caused one to lose their work. From one comment, certain people with batsh1t insane. Complained to the right people.

The other, outrages everyone.

Our society is insane.
