    I don't understand what you are complaining about. Because some people were offended and expressed themselves? So what it happens all the time. The media isn't making a big deal about it, you are making a big deal about it. People Magazine? Seriously?

    Some random people on Twitter make a false claim of racism, so every claim of racism is false. And thus the concept of racism no longer exists (except against white people). What do I win?

    Why not pay attention to the guy who calls our president the founder of ISIS and invites Russia to hack us. Are you serious? We have idiots in this country that actually support that man.

    I agree with you - absolutely ridiculous- I'm as liberal as the next person, but some people really need to stop being overly sensitive about some of this stuff. Find something better to do with your time, people!

    That there are more important things that a bunch of idiots on Twitter? Are you having trouble comprehending that?

    Political Correctness is a red herring. There's always been over-sensitive people across the political spectrum. Stop trying to create controversy over nothing.

    Ok fine, let's talk about how the right craps in their pants when a BLM protest happens or rap music or people not putting flags on their lapels or not wanting to say "under god" or saying their finally proud of their country or criticizing the police or not using "Islamic Terrorists" or many other things that people get so upset about.

    Sounds like Political Correctness is ok so long as it's in favor of of the right, but it's ruining America when it favors the left. What a hypocrite.

    This statement shows why our country is so screwed up.

    Big problems we face? Is it jobs and wage stagnation? Nope. Is it health care and prices? Is it the cost of housing? Nope and Nope. Is it terrorism? Nope. Is it racism? Nope. Is it gridlock? Nope.

    What is the big problem? It's political correctness!!!!
