The definition of free speech and freedom of expression continues to be at the center of discussion -- whether it relates to the Presidential campaign, college campuses or Gov. LePage. What is considered hate speech and what is considered politically correct? What about microaggressions and trigger warnings? Is our ability to accept freedom of expression changing? Or are racist attitudes getting a free pass under the name of free speech?
