Study: We Don’t Like PC Culture

A new study reported in The Atlantic finds that Americans don’t really like political correctness. A full 80 percent of Americans said they “believe that political correctness is a problem in our country.” 79 percent of whites agreed, but contrary to identity politics convention wisdom, 82 percent of Asians, 87 percent of Hispanics, and 88 percent of American Indians also agree with PC is a problem. So who disagrees? It looks like political correctness is hottest among rich, highly educated, white progressives—only 30 percent of that group identified it as a problem. So it’s basically the new “save the whales,” the crusade of comfortable people with nothing else to worry about.
