Target: Political Correctness

This Muslim issue at Target still amazes me. Rather than offend a small group, the giant retailer risks offending an even bigger group: its customers.

Now first off, I think Target arrived at this decision to re-assign Muslim cashiers because it was trying, trying to do the right thing. But where do you draw the line? The Catholic cashier who doesn't eat meat on Fridays during Lent and doesn't want to touch it on Fridays? Do you re-assign her? The atheist who can't touch our currency because it says "In God We Trust." Reassign him? The stock boy unpacking sexy lingerie but protests doing so because it offends him? Do you reassign him too? In that case, I'll do that guy's job! But I digress.

My point here is being politically correct for one group means being politically correct for all groups. Pretty soon you're kowtowing to all religious beliefs and losing sight of all your financial goals.

You know, we live in a multi-cultural world where we attempt to blend, not stand out. We are a great country for that. We become a target, no pun intended, when we forget that.
