Thread Name: The 'Gypsy' Controversy
Subject: RE: The 'Gypsy' Controversary
As I understand it, the term 'politically correct' was devised as a term of abuse/ridicule/insult by some journalist or newspaper which objected to equal right/anti-discrimination movements. This is certainly how it has come to be used and it is supported by anti-liberal thinkers. I am surprised to see that it is used as a term of ridicule on a folk and blues based forum.
