When a person suggests or insists upon the usage of PC in speech or conversation-isn't really just a diversion from what the obvious truth is? Like for instance changing The War on Terror to another named conflict. Isn't what America is facing currently on a daily basis " Terror"?
When we use the term " undocumented worker", isn't that just making nice of what an illegal alien really is? Does the term " undocumented worker"intentionally deceive some into thinking it's ok for them to be here, they just don't have papers yet?

If Political Correctness comes from the intent to deceive or cause someone to wander from core beliefs-rather than to be non-offensive, What would be the reasons for our government or any authoritative body to continually use it?

I have a friend with a two dogs. The black dog is Blackie and the white dog is Whitey. (Not very imaginative, I know.) They own their own buslness and take the dogs to work with them every day. So they when sending out the customer newsletter, they wanted to include the dogs names. NOPE. They were told by the printers it was racist to use those names for white and black dogs.
PC run amuk.

Pigment Challenged, LOL!
I read this somewhere, which I could find the source:
"We used to call them colored folk. Then we were told to call them Negroes. Then we were told to call them Black. Then we were told to call them African American. Now we are told to called them People of Color. We are damn near back to colored."
It was an article about PC name-changing, and how the "polite" word of one decade is considered a rude word in the following decade.
