African American is not politically correct. It’s black lives matter not African American lives matter. Black power not African American lives matter.

"hurled numerous racial epithets at him and yelled out "white power."

@Jim: are you addressing the assailant? If so, perhaps a letter to jail might be more appropriate than an online comment section.

If, however, you are either mocking or attempting thinly veiled attacks, you have failed, particularly in light of the white nationalist terrorism across the country this weekend.

It seems these days the only folks who use the phrase "politically correct" are folks that would prefer to say something uncivil, at best, or worse - say something hostile.

Why not let your flag fly, Jim? What are yo afraid of?
