Awhile ago Jerry Seinfeld did an interview with ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd, he had this to say:
“I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges, they’re so pc.’ Hey, I’ll give you an example. My daughter’s 14. My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple of years, I think maybe you’re going to want to hang around the city more on the weekends so you can see boys.’ You know, my daughter says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words. ‘That’s racist. That’s sexist. That’s prejudice.’ They don’t even know what they’re talking about.”
They do know what they’re talking about.
Some people just refuse to grow beyond what they knew. It’s sad that Seinfeld chose to phrase things the way he did and I hope he doesn’t really believe that he knows while everyone else doesn’t know.
