This presentation takes another look at the unprotected category of FIGHTING WORDS. In an earlier presentation we examined the general rule as to fighting words. This presentation takes a special look at racial hate speech and how the Court's rulings as to this speech takes many twists and turns. This YouTube Channel is designed to provide my students supplemental instruction, as I teach them remotely. I want them to "take a soak" in the law and not a quick shower. This Channel is also designed to provide learning to the broader community. Learning can lead to enlightenment, and enlightenment to justice...or, at least, to a taste of justice.
