First and most important, the definition of discrimination:
Discrimination | Define Discrimination at Dictionary.comtreatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit
I suggest that political correctness in America today is incredibly discriminatory to the point that it is openly accepted, and promoted.
For example, a college is being sued for sexual discrimination against a women. It was evident that they did not discriminate against this women, however they openly admit to discriminating in favor of women. In short, they admitted to programs created for the expressed purpose of getting more women on the payroll. (I was a juror in this case.)
I suggest that the reason for this hypocritical mentality is a desire to believe that one gender is equal to the other, one race is equal to another, and one religious or moral code is equal to another. Therefore according to this mentality, any inequality can only be a result of discrimination, and to right this wrong a government should promote discrimination against (or not in favor of) those who were not originally discriminated against so as we will all be equal in how much we have been wronged.
I suggest, no human is equal to another, and two wrongs do not make a right.
