Brace yourself. We may, just may, get the chance to follow events as a new addition is made to Politically Correct speech. You probably recall that one of our Presidential Candidates, Senator Biden, complemented a fellow Candidate, Senator Obama, by saying he is articulate. He also said he is clean, but we’re beyond that for the moment. However, according to, The Racial Politics of Speaking Well, “articulate”, as said of a black person, may soon be on the Politically Correct Big List of Bad Words. I’m not sure I completely follow the logic of the piece, but, it seems to make the case that calling one African-American articulate, implies that most aren’t well spoken and, thus, is a racial insult. I can hardly wait to see how far this goes. Who knows, in a few years we may not even be able to speak to or about a tenth of our population.
