    Actually free speech ends with threats of actual violence or speech that directly and intentionally results in violence. Calling for the termination of someone's job doesn't qualify.

    The poll was quite stupid,true.

    Which of these "libs" are saying Sterling should be in jail,again? I keep seeing people trying to educate you, but you seem completely dedicated to not understanding much of anything at all.

    So yelling FIRE! in a crowded nightclub which causes a deadly stampede should not have consequences? Free speech after all.

    Demanding someone to be fired, IS freedom of speech. Whether you like it or not, it just is.

    They never demanded the record label drop them. They just were nauseated by hearing them and asked their fav country station not to play them, huge difference.

    Wrong. At the risk of repeating myself, "your right to swing your arms ends where my nose begins". You have no right to demand someone be harmed unless they broke a law. As of yet being racist is not illegal but you libs are working on it huh.

    No, you're wrong. It is perfectly legal to say that you want someone to be fired. It is your freedom of speech at work.

    You are just absolutely, 100% wrong.

    Is being racist a right?

IMO firing someone for being a racist is anti American and flies in the face of free speech.
    Absolutely and the government is not involved with prosecuting him so his rights aren't being infringed.

    What you are really asking is if there should be no social consequences for racism. It's a very different question and the answer is no. Society should absolutely internally regulate itself.

    As far as I see it, this IS the purpose of society. To figure out it's own cultural identity and internal operating rules. By demanding we have rights that trump our relationships, we are effectively saying that we want to ignore the societal facet of human nature which cannot be done unless we are willing to sacrifice healthy human emotionality

    That is almost inconceivably stupid.
