I'm not defending racism either privately or publically, I just think that asking people who can't/won't change their minds to be public isn't going to help anyone - dinosaurs, good description. I'd like to think that people like that will just disappear over time. I certainly don't want to give them the desire to share their views with impressionable young people.
With regards to political correctness, I think we might have cross lines here. I'm not talking about thinly-veiled racism / Sexism / Homophobia. I'm talking about an innocent comment taken out of context. None of the examples that Malky Mackay that you put on here earlier could possibly be misinterpreted - it's obvious what his opinions are.
I'm not racist - I don't feel that I should be worried about what I say in case someone takes my words out of context and accuse me of being so. That's when I think PC goes too far.
