Abstract

Argues that the debate about hate speech can be approached, with equal justification, from two perspectives -- from either an equality or free speech standpoint, depending on the values that one favors and the historical narrative that rings most true to one's experience. Observes that the concerted nature of racist hate speech creates a picture of changed social reality that seriously damages the prospects and feelings of persons of color.

Keywords: race, racism, civil rights, freedom of speech, hate speech, narratives
