About

Overview

In the wake of an extremely contentious U.S. presidential election that touched upon several hot-button issues including the right to marry and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, debate has erupted regarding the language people use to describe both political issues and groups of people. This book takes a look at the widening gap between those who believe political correctness is an unnecessary affectation and those who believe a greater good can be achieved with increased sensitivity in how we talk to, and about, each other. Through analyzing a range of viewpoints, students are encouraged to form their own opinions on this important topic.
