    Politically Incorrect Ad angle

    Utah developer pulls racial data from site
    A selling point? Eagle Mountain was touted as having a lower percentage of blacks than the rest of the state.

    Eagle Mountain is a burgeoning Utah County community, full of young families, new homeowners and white people.
    Lots and lots of white people.
    The racial breakdown of Eagle Mountain was listed as a selling point on the Web site of home builder Bigg Homes.
    The site also included this comparison among others: "Black race population percentage significantly below state average."

    We just got a college flyer...

    ...for an all girls school.

    It says that nearby there are other colleges with boys then touts all the advantages of the all girl environment.

    The final line: Blah College. Boys when you want them and none when you don't.

    My first reaction was 'well, there's point there.'

    Then, the recognition of our PC reality and how stupid it is. Most of us instantly recognize that an all girl environment might be great and then to have boys near by, well, maybe best of all worlds, right?

    The test:

    What if it said "Girls when you want them. None when you don't."

    Sexist, suddenly, huh?

    Or

    "Blacks when you want them. None when you don't"

    Or

    "Old people when you want them..."

    "Poor people..."


    And so on.
