    Eastwood thinks political correctness has made society humourless

    London, February 27 (ANI): Acting legend Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political correctness has rendered modern society humourless, for he accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.

    The Dirty Harry star insists that he should be able to tell harmless jokes about nationality without fearing that people may brand him "a racist".

    "People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

    "I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a 'Sam the Jew' or 'Jose the Mexican' - but we didn't think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don't want to be politically correct.

    We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything," he added.

    Equality is sometimes being the butt of a joke.

    damn skippy. it's also taught a generation of people to LOOK for being insulted so you can whine about it and get it stopped.

    Last I saw he was.

    If you like him, you should get the documentary about him from a year or two back called Mr Warmth.

    Really good stuff if you like him.

    It amuses me that some think "political correctness" is some new phenomenon.

    This country has ALWAYS been politically correct.

    I guess you've never seen Birth Of A Nation? :laugh2:
    Hell even the Little Rascals caused some stir about 40 years after the fact.

    If that doesn't indicate change, I don't know what does.

    BS. This is a recent phenomenon as a part of the Victim Agenda.
