    Nike: Pro-Butt

    By kyle | August 3, 2010

    A Nike ad that praises the bounteous booty is great. Isn’t it? Nah, lefties are miffed that the ad doesn’t feature a black woman. Of course, the same post also hints that asociating black women with big butts is a stereotype. We all know how bad those are. This is exactly why you shouldn’t play along with the PC police. Once you get on the merry-go-round of ding-a-ling, there’s no way off until you’re good and dizzy. (Note to feminists: Nike doesn’t care about body acceptance and self-esteem. They care about selling stuff. “Feeling good about yourself” and “self-improvement” are how they sell stuff to women, hero worship is how they sell stuff to men.)

    On the Portuguese airline TAP last week, I noticed, the safety videos feature not humans but animated genderless green pipe-cleaner-like figures. Don’t use images of human beings at all: That’s probably your safest bet.

      The PC crusaders insist that race is an issue in everything. Therefore, they find a racial issue in everything.

      This pseudo-intellectual abortion of reason illustrates the dangers of political correctness better than anything. When you start playing the PC game, you cannot win.

      Political correctness is nothing more than a leftist weapon used to castrate opposition.

      I too am pro-butt for the record.
