The forces of political correctness have their knickers in a twist this morning. It seems that a federal judge in Montana passed along this viral email joke.
“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?'” “His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!'”
The thought police are hot on that judge’s trail this morning. Scott Lemieux’s commenter thebewilderness explains that the reach of current PC punitive enforcement just doesn’t go far enough.
I have a couple family members like that. Not a public racist where it would have a negative effect on them. Just a private racist among friends and family. I guess thatâ€™s what they mean when they moan about having to be politically correct.
