John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son, Sean Lennon, recently went on a PC culture rant on Twitter. He slammed PC culture for “over sensitizing people to arbitrary characteristics like skin color.” It’s not clear what led Sean to go on this Twitter rant, but he did declare that the US is in a “two steps back moment” in terms of race relations and political correctness.

He noted that growing up in New York City, it “truly felt like a melting pot.” Even though it wasn’t perfect, he said that “ppl did not self segregate along tribal lines to the degree that I am seeing today.”

Sean Lennon goes off about PC culture

I am very sad that I feel like I have to say the following but here goes: Asians are not the problem. Blacks are not the problem. Jews are not the problem. And yes, Whites are not the problem either. No race or culture is ‘the problem.’

“There is something wrong with the strategy and direction we have chosen, in academia, in politics, and elsewhere,” he says in his rant. “We should check our strategy if we are not getting the results we intended. I don’t know what the solution is, but I suspect that over sensitizing ppl to arbitrary characteristics like skin colour may be doing more harm than good.”

When I grew up New York truly felt like a melting pot. It wasn’t perfect, but ppl did not self segregate along tribal lines to the degree that I am seeing today. There is something wrong with the strategy and direction we have chosen, in academia, in politics, and elsewhere.

So, what is the problem? Lennon has an idea of what’s NOT the problem, and it’s exactly what many people are arguing about today – “I am very sad that I feel like I have to say the following but here goes: Asians are not the problem. Blacks are not the problem. Jews are not the problem. And yes, Whites are not the problem either. No race or culture is ‘the problem.’”

It’s not working. And to be clear I am not blaming all of the bad things we are seeing in culture today on political correctness. Yes we inherited a problematic history (yada yada) and I think PC culture has achieved some good and some progress for society.

It’s likely that the recent uptick in anti-Semitic attacks, most notably the Israel-Palestine conflict, inspired Sean’s thoughts on what’s happening globally. “I know very well that the idea of being “colour blind” is out of fashion, that MLK’s vision of character over skin colour is considered to be naïve,” says Sean, “But that vision surely made our society better. I’m not sure the modern vision of ‘race consciousness’ is making things better.”

I am simply saying we should check our strategy if we are not getting the results we intended. I don’t know what the solution is, but I suspect that over sensitizing ppl to arbitrary characteristics like skin colour may be doing more harm than good.
