as they try to sound? Or is a lot of it just because they are trying not to offend anyone? Is it sincere?
What I mean is, do you think that a lot of people think differently than they say? It seems like everyone tries so hard to be politically correct, but I don't know if I'm buyin' it. Do you?

I am sure everyone has thoughts at times that are not so PC- if 1 has tact, 1 generally does not either say or scribe those thoughts all.of.the.time., if ever..... Truly, I think some people just lack that internal filter that screams, "not a good idea."
Duster, my husband was a general manager of a large Co where most of the employees, as well as the customer base, were black. He actually asked them what they preferred (both in city wide and Co meetings). The overwhelming response was "black."

Its just a word and have never seen it directed at someone with a medical condition. Calling someone a terrorist based on the fact that they are a Muslim is bigotry. Calling someone or something retarded has no bearing on a medical condition...it usually is closely related to the ACTUAL definition of the word.
It's used as an insult to someone acting stupid. People, including innocent children, are not stupid even if they are mentally handicapped. THAT is the problem I have with the word. If someone is stupid, by all means, call them stupid. Don't insult an entire group of people based on some idiot's actions.
