Jerry Seinfeld does not think that college kids really understand racism and sexism these days and no, its not because these things are no longer a reality, unfortunately. The 61 year old comic, who confesses that he no longer performs on college campuses anymore, made the remarks on ESPN Radio.
Apparently Seinfeld feels that college students are so hyper sensitive to these issues today that it is impossible to be funny to them.

Appearing on an episode of of “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” Seinfeld said, “I hear that all the time. I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’ I’ll give you an example. My daughter’s 14. My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple years, I think maybe you’re going to want to be hanging around the city more on the weekends, so you can see boys.’ You know what my daughter says? She says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice.’ They don’t know what the f–k they’re talking about.”
