Johnson, Hinderaker, and Free Speech

For more information on the University of Minnesota Duluth case mentioned below, try this article. You may see a familiar name.

One point of clarification on the "racial slur" mentioned in the article. As I recall, here is the joke at issue:

Reporter: Mr. President, what is your position on Roe vs. Wade?

Clinton: I don't care how the Hatians get home.

I blog, you decide. Is it a racial slur, or a dumb play on words within a page of jokes, among an entire booth of conservative literature (pre-blogosphere)?

A false accusation of racial slur has added significance in light of recent events. It is being used as justification for murder nowadays.
