Freedom of idiocy

Columbia University softens its stance on campus hate speech directed at minority students in favor of freedom of speech, at least, when the minority is in the military.

Update: You can probably see I'm mad at my old school. In truth, I don't know much about their policy on hate speech, and I don't have a well-defined opinion of it on college campuses , but this article makes Columbia's administration look like they have a double standard when it comes to protecting minorities from hate speech. Minorities in the military have to suck it up. My guess is they're tough enough, anyway.
