138. Yet so many crying "free speech" would NEVER use the "N" word to
describe a black person, would they? It's because there is a recognition of the harm such words do, and that recognition, in the minds and hearts of enlightened people leads to self-restraint. Why do so few see an equivalent need for self-restraint in the case of these bigoted cartoons?
