Yes, and no.

Yes: you're right.
No: we live in the "politically correct" era so the facade is intact to dissuade such talk. But the racist, sexist, and pejorative cases are still there. Albeit secluded in the subtlety of wording.

Political correctness is more of a distraction tool than anything else. It's basically a form of the doublethink that Orwell talked about in 1984.

It is.

Let me clarify. Because we live in a morally bankrupt environment, we have invented a new language to transition our amoral grievances. It has worked quite well. Don't you think?

If we were openly referring to all the blacks in prisons as n-i-g-g-e-r-s still, that might cause an uprising. I think that's where political correctness comes in as a useful tool.

Honestly? In the 90s, people probably would torch the White House.

Now? The Pussy Generation? Where priorities are Twitter, hipster irony, taking iPhone videos at concerts, and natural food?

Naw.

Occupy was interesting for a moment, but it didn't go far enough. Lots of Americans like to talk about how the second amendment is in place to protect them from their government, yet they continually let the government rape them and fuck them over without doing anything.

We got comfortable. It happens. Look throughout history. The idea is: "I can be better than the person next to me."

The idea is quaint, and almost trivial to outsiders. But it has fed Capitalistic appetite, and will continue to do so until (inevitable) self-destruction.

only people that seem to be complaining all the time are white males..
ask minorities, women, and the handicap; Are things better for "you" than they were 15-20 years ago, and i think each group would say, "Yes!"

Everyones a whinger. Especially over entitled rich people and gay folks. Yes, you can't get married in a lot of jurisdictions and that sucks ass but odds are you have everything else. Just fuckin chillax for a second.
