Why is it racism that is the censored speech that's always fought over in 'free speech' violations?
No one seems to give a damn about people censored in other circumstances.
It's often remarked by these same right wing retards your free speech has limits of consequence, when it's appropriate for their agenda.
This is a limit of consequence. Duh. You don't think there is a racist website you can move your activity to instead of sprawling it all over one of the most public formats on the planet? It's against Facebooks T&C to be racist; it's extremely loosely enforced because they don't like dealing with 'free speech' asshats who really are just racists veiling their hate in American Constitution. I wouldn't be shocked if Instagram was similar.
People that defend this as 'free speech' as sick in the head for not addressing the content. It's one thing to fight for others to have freedom in their words, it's another to support the message they're sending. I often wonder what side you're really on. "Free Speech" or "Die Blacks".(It's almost ALWAYS black people aswell)

Well 3 of the 4 students that got suspended were actually Asian.
I may have misinterpreted your post, I thought you were implying that we (ATS) only complain about free speech when it's racism, which isn't true because the last 5 threads on free speech had nothing to do with racism.
Now, the picture of the student with the noose around his/her neck. I'm torn on this one. I see death threat there, so I feel the parents AND the authorities should be notified. Too many times we've seen things like this go unremarked, and then later on, something horrible happens, a student is murdered and people act shocked because the kid's Facebook page contained threats or other things that indicated something was not kosher and nothing was done.

Cant wait to start reporting students for playing rap songs(racism, advocating various crimes, sex, shooting, general degeneracy) based on some of the logic in this thread.
Do we really want to go down this road and apply it equally?
