Both what you said and what @she said are extreme examples and not what the middle or other side is talking about in terms of PC. In your example that is absolutely using PC culture to validate their racist comment. The PC culture most people say they have a problem with is nothing like what you or @she described, and I think you already damn well know that. They are referring to examples like Dallas, where they made national news because a council member used the term "black hole" to describe central collections who lost tickets. They demanded an apology and compared it to using the term "Jew you down". That is what people have a problem with, not your strawman. You don't have to be a bigot to be disgusted by that.

These extreme examples that happen though. That's the point. There's a lot more nuance than the binary of non-PC vs PC. It's possible to rail against the PC culture and be racist which is what she was talking about.

No, she spoke in an absolute. That is not the fucking case. At all. There are plenty of people who are "sick of political correctness" that are not simply "pissed off because someone (told them) not to use bigoted slurs and sexist speech". She used the term only which is not nuance at all and you are either being intentionally dishonest or obtuse with your reply.
