Like any other social mechanism it started out as a way to ostracize bigots

nah, its always been about controlling debates/language. For example, the term illegal alien was attempted to be made a racist term by certain SJWs here a while back? Why would they want such an accurate description to be dropped? Because it paints illegals as law breakers, which they are. So, if you swap to their P.C. term of "undocumented workers". It just sounds like these are some folks who need a bit of paper work and they're good.

Thats the end goal anyways. When you cripple your opponents ability to convey their side of the story, you've won.
