Harvard Law Graduate: Free Speech has a History of Oppression and Racism

This from the College Fix:

The Harvard Crimson reports that Albert dubs such terms “legal talismans” — a “legal term of art, out of place, invoked to make or justify substantive decisions that do not involve formal legal processes.”

Common legal talismans, “they” say,  are “free speech” and “defamation,” the latter of which “hides deeply sexist, racist, and whorephobic, which means ‘anti-sex worker,’ connotations.”

When people “casually reference” such terminology, they’re ignoring the lingo’s “prejudicial histories,” Albert notes.
