Politically Correct

ABC’s Top News of the day : Ferraro Steps Down From Clinton campaign For passing “Racial Comments”

Her so-called “Racial Comments: “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

Maybe, she was a bit too open about her assessment, but nothing racist about it. I think, to a certain extent its true: He is a very good orator; He usually plays safe – so you can’t say much about his policies; He is bound to bring fresh ideas to the table but as he is black, he gets more black support. Whats wrong in saying that? Was she being racial?

Not really, She was being stupid to say that the country is caught up in the concept, but not for saying that he is in this position because he is black.

At-least to me, it seems like most of the western world is caught up in being politically correct than speaking their mind!
