Hate dispels misunderstandings plaguing our perennial debates about "hate speech v. free speech", showing that the First Amendment approach promotes free speech and democracy, equality, and societal harmony.  We hear many incorrect assertions that "hate speech" - which has no generally accepted definition - is either unprotected or protected from censorhip.  Rather, U.S. law allows government to punish hateful of discriminatory speech in specific contexts when it directly causes imminent serious harm.
