Your PC Experience
By Bryan Caplan
Two last questions on political correctness:
1. What’s the worst PC experience you’ve ever personally had?
2. What’s the worst PC experience anyone you personally know has ever had?
1. My worst experience: Hearing second-hand that a student thought my lecture on IQ and economics was “racist.”
2. Worst experience of someone I personally know: Having IQ-related research rejected because it would make some journal readers “uncomfortable.”
In short, nothing to lose even one night’s sleep over. Is my experience really atypical?
