Listening to the NPR interview.

When asked for an example of what kinds of views are being muted today because of political coredctness, BC said he had just spoken to someone who was chastised because he used the word "Oriental" instead of Asian.

I thought it was common knowledge that Asian was the correct term? And then the interviewer asked him if there were any words that describe African Americans would offend him. He went on to say that through his surgeries, he has learned that we're not about what's on the outside. We're all the same. And he didn't answer the question.

Without going into specific, I have a friend who just got back from a state in the south. In a work environment, was called the N word several times to his face. According to BC, we shouldn't worry about kind of stuff because we're all the same on the inside!

God will tell him whether or not to run for president? He dodged that question.

When talking about proportional taxation vs. progressive tax he referred to God and asked for people to prove that God is wrong. BC wants a flat tax so he can please God. And he talks about the "war on God." Definitely Huckabee-like on that front.

I like some of his takes on evolution and what he has said about the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and how he would have handled the response to 911. And his open mind regarding same sex relationships.

For clarification sake, you're making a comparison between calling someone from the Far East "Oriental" and calling a black person a n*****?

Doesn't this article typify the PC bullcrap that Carson was talking about?

There is nothing wrong with using Oriental, Spanish, Indian, Arab, Russian, or any other ethnic group.  If that's what they are, that's what they are.

Those are obviously different than using n*****, colored, brownie, raghead, whitey, mulatto, or any other slang term that could be considered offensive.

bradentonian:
Whether you agree with it or not, Oriental is considered offensive to many Asian Americans. It applies to inanimate objects, not people.
