The letter is a response to Jerry Seinfeld’s recent and correct declaration that colleges are too PC.

The student is Anthony Berteaux and he published his letter at the Huffington Post. I wish I could say this is parody.

Let’s face it, we knew this was coming, didn’t we?

An Open Letter to Jerry Seinfeld from a ‘Politically Correct’ College Student

Dear Jerry Seinfeld,

Recently, I’ve heard about your reluctance to perform on college campuses because of how “politically correct” college students are. You also further made remarks that college students are quick to use the words “racist,” “sexist,” and “prejudice” with little reverence for what those words really mean (which you felt was proven by a remark made by your 14-year old daughter.)

As a college student that loves and appreciates offensive, provocative comedy, I’m disheartened by these comments.

While I do agree with you that college students today are more sensitive to issues of race and gender politics, it’s simply because that’s our job as learners. As college students who are engaged in a myriad of social, economic, and political issues, it’s our duty to be actively engaged and educated about issues of sexism, racism and prejudice. While, respectively, your daughter might not quite know what’s considered “sexist” yet, I can say with confidence that most college students can distinguish the boundaries of what’s considered appropriately sexist or not.

But, I’d like to refocus the conversation to the state of comedy that you feel like we would call “racist” or “sexist.”
