Political Correctness X 100

"...[In the UK] A white man has been prosecuted for racially abusing three white security guards.

Jonathan Wicks was taken to court for calling the men 'honky wannabe cops'.

Wicks, 20, has had to attend court at least five times, at an estimated cost to the taxpayer of more than £5,000..." (source)

I can one-up this though... In the Philadelphia Fire Department a Jewish fireman almost lost his job for saying (this is paraphrased, I don't remember the exact words, but the idea is the same) "Put down my rolls, everyone knows us Jews don't share." He went before a review panel and because of one sane fireman that refused to condemn him his job was saved...

I cringe to think what the world will be 10 years from now...
