Will Shabazz be charged or penalized for hate speech?
NewBlackPantherParty leader Shabazz has been quoted saying hateful things: I love white-on white-crime, because that is the best crime; You should be thankful we’re not running around here hanging crackers by nooses and all that kind of stuff — yet, yet, yet; We don’t allow faggots and lesbians” in the New Black Panther Army;Envisions a world where every black person is “ready to bang on this cracker; We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery… so kiss ‘em goodbye. So, why isn't he being charged with hate speech?
He is apparently not considered news worthy enough, or maybe not controversial enough..
America tends to be extremely protective of Free Speech. Hatred isn't illegal unless it pushes into the realm of 'fighting words' or inciting violence, and that distinction seems to be poorly defined and difficult to charge someone with.
There is a lot of hatred being spewed all over the place these days. If Shabbaz really said those things, it doesn't, to me, stand out from other things that are commonly heard.

We know that freedom of speech often allows hate speech and we know that more reasonable and rational speech combats hate speech. Should freedom of religion provide protection for religious hate speech in the same way?

I have been coming across a lot of hate speech on HubPages, both in Hubs and in the forums. Stuff that I would not even dare repeat.While it is good to know who the bigots are on HubPages, we need to flag them immediately. Yes, it is not going to change their views, but that's not the point. The...
