University of Maryland students were unhappy after the administration rejected ban on hate symbols, when the administration cited First Amendment protections for their decision.
Two more hate speech hoaxes? A student resolution at Cornell University condemned two allegations of hate speech on the college campus, but it’s yet to be seen if they were made up or not.
Hate speech is protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution, yet University of Maryland students want it classified as ‘cult activity.’
