Searching for Jack: delving beyond political correctness into social inequality.
Before I begin, it is probably important to say I don’t believe in rude labels or terms, and I don’t believe in mocking people based on ‘race’ or ‘gender’. If I believed that was okay for a single second, I would leave social justice work immediately and find something else to do. Rude bullying would be a violation of another person’s humanity, and I don’t believe in that.
However, I don’t think it is enough to simply be respectful if we want to properly engage with social justice. Respect may be an important step in the right direction, but it is only a step. Political correctness is just too timid to get into the true heart of the work
