Many white people try to uphold PC-ness as a way of being tolerant/liberal/what-have-you. However, it's a cognitive contradiction for them to be politically correct because it forces them to see that some things should not be said because they strengthen discriminatory systems like racism.
Therefore, complaining about PC-ness, mostly by claiming that they "don't even see race so why is PC necesssary?," allows them to stay within their little white-privilege bubble, (a) without recognizing the existence of the bubble ("PCness is ridiculous, I don't even see race!") and (b) strengthening their own idea that they are tolerant ("those people are racist if they see race and act all PC!").
Scarily, they actually may believe what they say because they live outside discriminatory systems.
I think. I'm kind of tired.1

I think that would be funny if the people who complained about being PC were actually PC, but nope, and people still aren't a frickin' hivemind.0
