Changing the names of things has been proven to accomplish nothing. The whole "African-American" thing turned out to do absolutely nothing. And in fact, the "BLM" movement explicitly rejected that moniker in favor of "Black". And I for one am glad that Black is back, because, baby, Black is beautiful and it is not an insult or a slur, but merely a color of the rainbow - a color we should embrace and not be ashamed of.
We need to stop re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic with these name games. They accomplish nothing while at the same time appearing to accomplish things while at the same time, blocking real accomplishment. Because when you shame people for not being "PC" all you do is drive them into a corner. And cornered animals are always dangerous.
But then again, our friends at the Russian Internet Research Agency are well aware of this - and are playing us like a cheap violin.
UPDATE: The big problem with PC and identity politics is that the groups we are lumped into are not homogeneous. For example, we tend to lump all Spanish-speaking people into groups like "Latin" or "Hispanic" when in fact they are a collection of discrete individuals. Folks from Cuba and Puerto Rico are more Caribbean than Latin American, and even among Latin American countries, there are contested rivalries. And within countries, well skin color raises its ugly head as I have noted before. If asked, everyone from Panama to Mexico is of 100% Spanish heritage, because discrimination based on skin color is still a thing there. Ask you lawn guy why he wears a white scarf over his face when mowing your lawn on a sunny day - it isn't skin cancer concerns, but skin color.
And so on down the line. We can't be pigeon-holed based on color, race, sexual orientation, or whatever, because we all have different opinions on things. Democrats are courting the "Hispanic Vote" but are also pro-choice. But many Hispanics are devout Catholics - you can't just assume they will all vote the same way. This entire DACA thing is, of course, an attempt to pander to what they perceive as a voting block.
Both parties are guilty of this, of course - viewing us as blocks of voters rather than individuals with opinions. So they toss each block they think they can snag, some sort of political bone, often at odds with what they promised another group. Republicans, for example, promise "Free Trade" in the boardroom, but "Fair Trade" on the factory floor.
Maybe the parties should actually stand for something other than strategies to get elected?
