Political correctness exists because some people have been excluded from opportunities and that certain groups continue to be viewed with prejudice and hate. There is a lack of kindness, politeness and courtesy that requires a shift of mindset on a societal level. In a perfect world political correctness would not have to be a thing. Being kind and polite would be natural and organic. But as long as women, minorities along with religious and racial communities continue to get the short end of the stick and face a real struggle and hate then we need political correctness.
