Why I don’t do hyphens

Wretchard says it better than anyone else:

The greatest damage that political correctness has inflicted on society
is to make each of forget that underneath the accidents of color,
nationality and creed, that all of us are men. By dividing humanity into
hyphenated buckets, each sequestered in its hate,  the puppet masters
have managed to set one against the other so thoroughly that the
sharpers, wheeler-dealers and fixers can operate undisturbed. In a world
where every one thinks of himself as white, black, gay, straight — we
have forgotten that the real distinction is between who holds power and
who does not. Nothing else matters.
