From the Paper:

"Is there a line between freedom of expression and the exhibition of prejudice? Should all Americans be forced to curb their beliefs and opinions to spare others from being hurt by their words? Isn't this going against the very groundwork that our nation was founded upon, the right to express opinions or bias without repercussion? In our society today, we are all held to a new and stringent policy of "political correctness", a kind of speech that attempts to offend no one. Is this new language of carefully chosen words a barrier on our freedom of speech? Yes, it is. Regardless of how ill-founded or misguided the statements of some people may be, everyone should have the right to express themselves with whatever words they choose."
