Abstract

Examines certain arguments against anti-hate speech rules that emanate primarily from neoconservatives and others who believe that minorities ought to "toughen up" and let racial vituperation roll off their backs. Theorizes that neoconservatives oppose speech regulation because it ultimately threatens a key conservative tenet: the level playing field.

Keywords: hate speech, marketplace of ideas, First Amendment, freedom of speech, minorities, critical race theory
