As far as I know, nowhere does the United States constitution provide for the right to be offended, yet in this era of political correctness, everyone seems to think so. As I said on the other thread, it's a sad day when a man get's fired, and let's face it, that's what happenned in all but name, for simply stating an opinion. Whether or not anyone agrees with Rush is irrelevant. Every sports fan should be pissed as hell about this. Is Mcnabb overrated? In my opinion, yes. But then, I'm a Steve Mcnair fan. Mcnair is UNDERRATED in my opinion, but do I get upset because Vick, Mcnabb, Favre, etc get more attention? No. When a man loses his job because of an insult, whether or not the insult has ANY basis in fact, that's just WRONG.

The term "minority" in the US.

Majority: White male.
Minority: Everyone else.

Get real people, this is about shame not fairness. Plain and simple and if you are honest with yourself undeniable.

Are you kidding me? I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you've never worked a day in your life. If I walked into my bosses office right now and stated my opinion of what I think of him, I'd be fired before I new what hit me. People get fired for stating their opinion all the time. I'm sorry but it's not a sad day when a moron like Rush gets kicked ot the curb for opening his bloated mouth and stating his "opinion." He can take his tired act back to his radio show where it belongs.

You're right. This is the greatest misconception about the constitution. You have a right to free speech. But it says "Congress shall make no law"--not ESPN, not a business. The government cannot censor you (and even that right is limited). Speech may be free--although it is not in an office environment--but it carries consequences.

ESPN doesn't want race brought into its shows, so it canned Rush. That's how it works.

As far as I know, nowhere does the United States constitution provide for the right to be offended, yet in this era of political correctness, everyone seems to think so.


Now that's funny. The author didn't really mean McNabb had a "right" to be offended--he meant just cause, or a reason to be offended. However, why do you think that someone can't be offended? This has nothing to do with the consititution. It has to do with private entities. If I said to my boss that I think he got his job because he's black, he'd likely fire me. That's the way the world works. It has nothing to do with a "right" to be offended.
