Apparently Black Hole is a racist term.

I know as a white guy I've always been offended by the billboards advertising Cracker Barrels...

Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

Can one be so politically correct that he/she becomes realistically incorrect or just fake? Did that make sense?

NOT only in the US. In apartheid South Africa the famous children's book "Black Beauty" was banned. And in England the historic character that featured for decades on certain pots of jam, a "golliwog", was also banned. And the term "nigger" was originally not remotely racist, but acquired that connotation to the exclusion of its original meaning.

Yet the reality of racism continues unabated in many places. One wonderful reason for living in Belize.

Perhaps we have our priorities wrong?

Perhaps if EVERYONE had a little thicker skin, regardless of it's color...even outside the US.

I don't even like politicians for the most part...
why would I want to be politically correct???

Truly, I do agree that people need to relax a bit and allow for truthful, thoughtful, heartfelt, free speech. Atleast that way we will know who the truly racist or violent people are because they will be "out of the closet". OOPS was that politically incorrect? I meant to say out in the open because they can say what they mean without thinking about the politically correct filter we all apply.

It's great to be .....
