4. It must be deliberate, not careless;

5. Excluded from hate speech are good faith interpretations of religious doctrine, discussion of issues of public interest, and literary devices like sarcasm and irony;

6. The statements must be hateful when considered in their social and historical context;

7. No prosecution can proceed without approval of the attorney-general, which introduces political accountability because the attorney-general is a cabinet minister.

So, I would say... you're wrong!

I think it means that you have to be either a Caucasian, American Indian, Asian, Hawaiian or Pacific Islander man in order to be considered American.

@xMathFanx

I'm not sure why he/she believes such an outrageous claim. But anyone who doesn't believe that the Unites States is the greatest country is free to leave and go wherever they want. But, of course, very few people leave this great country.
Thanks from xMathFanx

Neat link. Had I asked about FIRST AMENDMENT CONSTITUTIONALISM I would have been really impressed.

But Yale is a US college. Canada doesn't have a first amendment. Canada doesn't have a constitution.

So your link is an absolute Trumpian example of an attempt at dodging.
