Maybe its a statement, designed to demonstrate how silly and out of hand all this has been getting? :138:

Oops, never mind, its racist:

It is the age of micro-aggressions, anonymous retaliation, and shame garnering. The guy didn't do anything wrong. Those who want to shame him are the ones lashing out with intent to hurt because there is something wrong with them. They need to grow-up and learn to cope. Surely annoying (offending) things will always exist. There was a time when people were proud to be not easily offended.

Micro-aggression which means one-millionth of an aggression, isn't even detectable. In order to detect one-millionth of an aggression, you need to be one-million times more sensitive than an average person. Usually when something is a million times more sensitive, it's reacting to the noise floor and is considered broken or ill-designed. At some point the silent majority will rise up and start calling these incidents for what they are, assaults. Those who make these ground-less accusations should be banned on twitter and other social media outlets.

Pretty sad imo

You aren't asking a question, you're stating your opinion.

And my opinion is this, it's a huge overreaction by you, Castanet and others to a silly, but harmless post.

IMO, the pendulum has swung too far. Time to take it back a couple of notch or two.

I agree it has gone too far.

I fear that it hit a tipping point of no return and we will now be faced with over the top political correctness for some time now.

Political correctness was used by the government to smear opponents and was consistently in the news for years, pinningTrump as an unfit leader because of it. It's creeping into Canadian politics and is in the news here all the time. The more the media talks about it, the more of it we will consume, reading about how ridiculous it is, who has been fired; waiting in anticipation on what the next most rediculous claim will be.

A new politically INcorrect federal party might get some traction these days-if it could even get registered.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one that thinks it's getting a little out of hand by the social justice Warriors and all the corporations caving to anything. And that's exactly the reason why everything's going to backfire on the whole movement.

In and of itself, his question is not "racial" but it does point to the racist behaviors of many celebrities in the past who have been taken to task over their spoofing of black people in the name of comedy.

I say racist behaviors because that is what it is being labeled in and by the media. They do it to stir the pot, not to show how "woke" they are as people.

I dislike the word "offensive" today because it is overused by people who find offense in virtually everything. It's such an easy thing to say and it elicits emotional responses from those who are in the proximity and who wonder what it was they missed.

Likely, nothing.

He, Mr. lawman, is a moronn because he used SM to say a "bad word" to see if he would get called on it. No real or intellectual reason for it, just testing the waters.

And now he will be "erased" by the socially conscious machine who govern all.

Its so bad now with blm and every thing else going on. If people cannot have a sense of humour...how about this let black companies hire only blacks and white companies hire only whites. After all there are about 23 BLACK ONLY COLLEGES, MISS BLACK AMERICA BLACK ONLY TV PROGRAMMES, This will soon stop all these accusations of racism!!!!
