That is just sad, and depressing. It will probably stay like that for a long time too.

It all started years ago when people started being "PC". It has led to our society being a bunch of wimps and pushovers, afraid to stand up for anything for fear of being labeled as racist, intolerant or "anti whatever". Kids that played games with no winner, people that FORGOT 9/11 and who committed that terrible act. My grandparents would be sick if they saw the state of affairs we are in.
