Academia: Have a Politically Correct Halloween

While silly Civil War bloggers insist that political correctness is a fantasy, the sky falls in around them.
Colleges are hanging flyers around campus with phone numbers of officials that students can call to consult with about whether or not their Halloween costume is perfectly politically correct. “Unsure if your costume might be offensive?” asks a poster that’s been hung around campus at State University of New York at Geneseo. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions.”
Why are so many of the professional historian class in denial about political correctness? Are they unable to admit the reality of PC due to fear of reprisal?
