In today's society we still have free speech but we almost don't because everyone else is worried about urting someones fellings for instance: a african american can call there peole the N word if a white person dose -they are in trouble. People frown on us kids saying that's so gay-when i know gay people who call stuff gay??? You are a racist if you think it is wrong the goverment is not being as hard on illigal immigrants. How can anyone say what they think when eveyone is so offended

We do have freedom of speech but with that being said you are still responsible for what you say, when you say it and how you say it. Putting a post anonymously about how much your work sucks is better than doing it in front of your boss. There are consequences for your actions and words. If you say the wrong thing it may get you beat up, put in jail, dumped or worse. Judge your surroundings and the company you keep and you will have a better idea what is politically correct for that circumstance. If you want to say whatever you want you may want to find a different outlet for that maybe a journal or forum.

You can not satisfy everyone. You never can. Though it's still important to have your own view, so that you can be more consistent in life. Free of speech is there, but we'll need to be responsible with things that we say. And if you're worried too much about it, just keep silent. Silence is gold, people said.

This is becoming more and more the Truth. Too many people are becoming too sensitive to things, and taking everything as wrong. I have seen a lot of African American people myself who are quick to say things negative towards themselves and Caucasians but if we say something they are the first ones to jump. It makes me wonder sometimes what is really going on, and when did it become a difference again?
