Found in a stash of blog-posts drafts in my Blogger dashboard. True then, true now?

From The College Fix (October 4, 2020), we have this “speech guide.”  The list is from Virginia’s James Madison University, where the 2020-2021 undergraduate tuition along with other fees, including room and board, for in-state students is $23,918 and out-of-state tuition plus fees and room and board, is $40,818.

 Dated October 4, 2020. 2020-2021 Undergraduate tuition, along with other fees, including room and board at JMU = Entering Students (2020-21) – Per year In-state tuition: $7,250 Comprehensive fee: $5,080 Room and board*: $11,588 Total in-state: $23,918 Out-of-state tuition: $24,150 Comprehensive fee: $5,080 Room and board*: $11,588 Total out-of-state: $40,818 The full list of 35 “dumb” expressions is (emphases mine): 

1. “Some of my best friends are …” 
2. “I know exactly how you feel.” 
3. “I don’t think of you as …” 
4. “The same thing happens to me too.” 
5. “It was only a joke! Don’t take things so seriously.” 
6. What do ‘your’ people think.” 
7. “What are you?” or “Where are you really from?” 
8. “I don’t see color” or “I’m color blind.” 
9. “You are so articulate.” 
10. “It is so much better than it used to be. Just be patient.” 
11. “You speak the language very well.” 
12. Asking black people about their hair or hygiene. 
13. Saying to LBGTQ people “what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom is your business.” 
14. “Yes, but you are a ‘good’ one.” 
15. “You have such a pretty face.” 
16. “I never owned slaves.” 
17. “If you are going to live in this country, learn to speak the language!” 
18. “She/he is a good person. She/he didn’t mean anything by it.” 
19. “When I’ve said the same thing to other people like you, they don’t mind.” 
20. Calling women “girls, honey, sweetie pie” or other familiar terms. 
21. When people of color say, “It is not the same thing.” 
22. When people of faith say, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.” 
23. When white men say, “We are the ones being discriminated against now!” 
24. Referring to older people as “cute.” 
25. Asking a transgender person, “What are you really? A man or a woman?” 
26. Referring to the significant other, partner, or spouse of a same gender couple as their “friend.” 
27. “Why do ‘they’ (fill in the blank) always have to sit together? They are always sticking together.” 
28. “People just need to pick themselves up by their bootstraps.” 
29. People with disabilities are “courageous.” 
30. “That’s so gay/queer. That’s so retarded.” 
31. “I don’t see difference. We are all part of the same race, the human race.” 
32. I don’t care if you are pink, purple or orange, I treat all people the same.” 
33. Asking a transgender person, “Have you had the operation.” 
34. Saying to a Jewish person, “You are so lucky to have ‘your’ Christmas spread over a week!” 
35. “Here’s another book on political correctness.”

The entire document is HERE, and each individual item has an “explanation” or “supportive material.”

Mind you, I wouldn’t utter most of the above statements.  As a young person, however, I would have.
Besides, a university is supposed to be, by definition, a place where students are exposed to new and different ideas and opinions.  
Back in the days when I attended university (1968-1973), I was exposed to plenty of different ideas.  I evaluated those ideas (“Keep the best, lose the rest”) — that was my job as student.
Today, students at so many of our institutions of learning are being turned into Leftism-spouting automatons.  Weep for America. Weep for our  Bill of Rights.
