Yes, it certainly has, I remember when I was allowed to say the nursery rhyme baa baa black sheep, and I wasn't told I was being racist, how on Earth talking about a black sheep would be racist I really don't know, or maybe it's because it's sheepist, should it now be 'noise, noise, non-colour descriptive, non-human'? The trouble is it seems to be white high up people who decide what's politically correct and what's not, I've spoken to one or two Asian, African, European friends and they think it's rediculous, the Asian and African friends didn't mind being called black, but they did mind being called coloured, the Europeans didn't seem to mind what they were called, just as long as we weren't rude to them.

yes, we should be free to say what we want but now we have to be careful that we don't offend anyone. If people are going to be offended then they should just ignore us!
