no, thats why slavery is now illegal and has been for many years in the
USA (as well as most other countries).

however, the more appropriate example relates to free speech. if its OK
to ban racist speech, why not speech denouncing america as a demagogic,
unilateralist, terroristic superpower? why not speech from people with
italian accents? why not speech from people who are left-handed? the USA
has historically acted in a way that suggests a profound institutional
fear; a fear of creating laws that rely on somnewhat arbitary "lines"
which when you cross them invite a different legal response than when
you stay on the other side.
