The Problem with Political Correctness...Is Political Correctness Bad or Good?
Controversy Corner Playlist: goo.gl/JLBnOC
I today's world the term "politically correct" or "political correctness" has been thrown around a lot, and in the past few years the word "offended" often goes along in suit!
But is Political correctness bad? Or is political correctness good? Has political correctness gone too far? Well to be politically correct you must conform with all things being equal which in theory sounds good but i do believe that in some cases this Political correctness has gone too far!
This is not a political correctness rant it is a political correctnesss debate! There is nothing wrong with being politically correct except when you take it to the extreme, like with anything in life!
The problem with political correctness is that people do tend to take things too far, in this video we give a few examples recently and also in the near past of such action so you can make an informed decision on is political correctness good or bad?
There will always be those on both sides that either say political correctness is good or political correctness is bad!
But do you know what political correctness means? I think the more informed we are the better! Is political correctness dying? has political correctness gone mad? those are the questions we try to answer!
Today we seek the truth about political correctness!

PC SUCKS! I remember a day when people were thicker skinned.
Now you have to watch your P's and Q's with everything you say, people are frightend to have a laugh incase some one is offended and takes you to court.
People, if not mentally challenged, can easily see what gives them good or bad results among other people, and that leads to self regulations. There is no need for any laws that incriminate hate speech and offenses.
We seem to have a generation of soft asses that want all the bad things to go away. In life you're allowed to be offended, you won't agree with everything thats going on...its a big bad world out there...and just because something does offend you, doesn't mean anything has to change...you can be offended, its ok. Great video as always dude :)
I want to comment...but I can only type in English...that might offend someone..In fact, just by me typing this, I may be offending someone that doesn't know how to use a keyboard or may not even own one. I suppose I ought to be mindful of the punctuation too..So much to consider. Ugh! I just realized that not everyone that watches YouTube has an account and therefore won't even be able to comment. Ugh!! I didn't realize I was showing off. In fact, this may just be the most non PC comment on YouTube. :-O
My own experience with it is it tends to be more of a cyclic nuisance than anything else. I was of an age to be engaged in current events during the last big politically correct wave in the 90s. People got hot and bothered about subjects and demanded some linguistic gymnastics out of people for a while, but in time it wore on people's nerves and went away. The culture moved on from the embrace of the PC wave to enshrining the backlash against it, and that was about the time that its energy ran out and it went away. And it's lasting impact? Very little. The principle focus of the movement was on forcing people to use the "hyphenated American" terms, and most of those just didn't take in the end. I think a lot of what's going on now is probably doomed to the same fate. It's wrapped up in more of the linguistic gymnastics, this time over gender politics, and I'm already starting to see the backlash creep into popular culture. Just as the unwieldy polysyllabic "African-American" couldn't supplant the term "black" in our vernacular, I suspect "xe and xir" are similarly going to be relegated to the dustbin of history.
Thank you for support! If I could win Mega Millions or get YouTube to pay me, I would love to put up night vision cameras for my Outdoor cat Fuzzilla! Long-term dream of mine to be able to provide a 24 hour live stream of Fuzzilla for both his safety and your entertainment, I should probably do a video talking about it and put it on my Patreon! Stay Blessed, Grateful and Be Humble... this is all for fun.
A loan brown cornpop being janitor is so wrong lmao. Subliminal messages is a thing. I feel that could play on that. Kids will see it on a daily basis and then subconsciously think brown people are the cleaners lol
Political correctness is good to a point. I dont think comedy should be completely restricted for example. Ofc theres a limit you shouldn't cross
This was a really good video. You hit the nail on the head. We have to be able to talk openly about certain subjects to make a change. But as Silphet pointed out, challenging some people's beliefs may trigger a negative response. Some peoples beliefs need to change but that change won't happen easily or without a fight in a lot of cases.
People are just too sensitive nowadays and it's certainly gone too far!
Sadly, the next generation is being groomed for more of the same, all through the education system. So it won't be too long before we get more SJW'S and sensitive snowflakes on our morning TV shows while we're eating our cereal and looking for what next to be offended by on the packaging!! 😂😂😂👍💯
I think it all goes down to ignorance and lack of awareness of why these things are offensive. And then there are those who shout offensive whenever they can, when it's not even close to that in the first place. I wish people would educate themselves first before criticizing others.
I soooo agree!! I have so many opinions about political correctness 😂 people get way to offended to easy, the one I find a little too much is people getting offended at the “green man” at traffic lights and wanted it changed ... first of all , it could be a woman with no curves ..basically it upsets me that people can’t just chill and laugh about things . But I still agree people
Should stand for what’s right , just don’t be silly about it 😅Great video!
Great job Ryan, well done. This is an interesting topic, while I do agree that Political Correctness can go to far, their are instances where the person who is "offended" has a point--and to just shrug it off as they was being to PC or a SJW invalidates their experiences. And even if the initial behavior may not have been intended to offend, the fact that it did shouldn't seen as a problem, but a way to correct your behavior.
Though, Like I said, there are plenty of times where it is taken too far, like when someone gets upset because you wished them a "Merry Christmas" or a "Happy Holidays". In most instances it wasn't meant as a spiteful act and just take the damn well meaning greeting.
Wow I can't believe this! This video is so offensive and politically incorrect! How dare u call a corner "controversial"! Corners have feelings too! That is just so offensive and insensitive its ridiculous. People these days....
Good stuff. Loving the more serious topic. The way i view it is people should just be respectful regardless of race or sexuality. I dont see it is an issue as i dont see the difference between black or white or male or female.
I believe in political correctness to an extent. If one goes out of their way to hurt someone, that's wrong. However, people have a tendency to be too nitpicky. I feel like this topic has too many shades of gray to just look at it as a black and white issue.
Yea people worry about political correctness while a lack of empathy prevails about the suffering of civilians and children being bombed in well known war zones around the world 🌎 it's a mad mad world ryan 👍😎
