In my October 23 column, “The American Left: RIP,” I pointed out that political correctness now bans the use of the words “pregnant woman.”
One might think it difficult to exceed such absurdity, but a University of Illinois professor has managed to carry political correctness to new heights of absurdity by declaring mathematics to be the language of “white privilege.”
Why stop there? What about physics and chemistry? What about the English language itself which has established its hegemony as the world language? The US dollar which is world money?
What else have white people created in order to gain privilege? Democracy perhaps? The rule of law? Civil liberties?
Political correctness is just beginning its career. What will survive it?
