A new survey has revealed that almost half of college students do not believe that all speech should be protected under the First Amendment.
The study, conducted by the Knight Foundation, discovered that students believe that statements or content categorized as ‘hate speech’ should not be protected under the banner of freedom of speech.
A total of 41 percent said they do not think such speech should be protected, while 58 percent believe it should.
Disturbingly, when broken down into demographics of race and gender, the figures show that in some cases a MAJORITY of students believe that not all speech is protected.
A total of 53 percent of college women said ‘hate speech’ should not be protected, as well a more than half of all black students.
