I remember a time when there was a 1st and 2nd Amendment in Connecticut.

We had a dinner once in Connecticut some 30 years ago. It was great lobster but I have no intention of ever returning to that blue state either.

Not condoning what was said just wondering if anything would happen if it was the other way around. Thought freedom of speech didn't allow being charged with a long list of crimes?

In a statement, a school spokesperson previously wrote in part: “UConn is taking this matter very seriously, and believes strongly that everyone on our campuses deserves to feel safe, valued, and respected at all times.”
....unless you are Christian, white, conservative or heterosexual.

They are idiots for sure, but I don't think criminals for shouting a racial slur. If that kind of thing was enforced both ways, I think we'd lose a lot more black and hispanic residents than white, at least around here.

except their surnames appear to be Malaysian and Albanian. So how 'white' they are might be up for discussion. :confused5

Their defense can be that they were just writing a rap song.

I dunno. When a punk thug with a hoody got shot after jumping on a guy in an apartment complex in Florida, they called that hispanic guy white. :confused5
