Political Correctness Explained

Updated on November 16, 2013

It is the unsophisticated mind that laments the passing of a time when insulting a man at will was considered sport

What does it say for a man to be inconvenienced by thoughts governed by respect of their neighbor’s heart?

Fear not the burial of free speech in a civilized world striving to save the resources of survival and the souls of men

For the wounds of spoken words in the hands of those who use them beyond the bounds of decency will never mend

Inside dreams that never die deeply held beliefs of alienation are reminded of their purpose without a hurled stone

Awakened by the cuts of the suns enemies fear and despair flow into lost veins where humiliation lives alone

No matter a man’s color or his fight for the pride of his people it is our commandment to honor his right to be free

It is our differences that light the fuse of conflict when we refuse to honor what God gave to you and what he gave to me
