Do we self sensor to the point of creating art that is not true to the conditions of reality? So often in America we use the term political correctness to describe the necessity of not offending a particular group. The question that I have is, what does this political correctness do to our art and to our understanding of one another. To speak the unspeakable allows for a dialogue. Yet instead of saying what is on our minds, we hold back for fear of being judged. True understanding does not come from saying the “right” thing, it comes from saying that which rings most true and being open to a conversation about it. That is the key, openness to conversation.
