For some reason, people seem to think being politically incorrect makes you a racist/bigot or that people who are politically correct can’t be. I have stuck out all along that Daryl Dixon is not a racist. He is politically incorrect and blunt too, which seems to be taken as proof that he is a racist.
That’s because people are judging him by his appearance, his family and his speech, not his actions. He has (and will most likely continue to) go out of his way risking his own ass for every member of the group; white, black, female, old, young. If people would judge him by his actions they would understand that his is not racist. He is not a bigot in anyway.
If you want to really know someone’s character watch their actions, don’t listen to their words or look at their appearance. I have known people so politically correct it makes my ass hurt. They go to great pains not to say anything that anyone would find offensive, in public; but let them get behind closed doors and the closet bigot comes out. They may talk a good game but when it came down to it, they were bonafide bigots.
On the other hand you would think someone who flies a rebel flag from there pickup truck is definitely a racist wouldn’t you? I know someone who does and yes he is politically incorrect in his speech. This same person who everyone would call a racist will give the shirt off his back to anyone in need regardless of their race; white, black or pink with purple polka dots.
Maybe I’m better at understanding what a racist is because I was exposed to real racism growing up in the south. I didn’t grow up with this Politically correct garbage that does nothing more than sweep real racism under the rug because people base evaluations on how someone appears or what they say. Actions mean nothing in the world of political correctness. If they did people who are not racist in their actions would be accused of being racist.
You decide who is really the racist
The person who may use ‘colorful’ speech but will help anyone in any way they can,
The person who careful to speak and dress ‘correctly’, but when it comes to ‘those people’ won’t lift a finger to help in any way because it ‘those people’.
