When black people were slaves or had less rights, there is little doubt that white people used terms like "boy" to denigrate black men. I think that is why MF started from the place he did.

He violated both of those. With past convictions for fraud, he engaged in more fraud by lying to virtually everyone regarding this film: what it was about, how it was financed, everything. He opened accounts and signed checks with aliases. That's bank fraud. Why isn't that dangerous? He attempted to get a passport with an alias in 2011. How isn't he a flight risk?

Germany has done pretty well having such limits, though I don't know how it's regulated and what the judging authority is. And that is not to say that I think the US owes any apologies for the dude who put the video out. I'm just saying that in general, the issue of unlimited free speech should maybe be examined.Moreover, I do think many muslims who are outraged by the alleged mocking of their prophet are by and large hypocrites for their own hateful expressions against jews, but also lose a lot of credibility for their violent behavior in response to what is merely a video and even though the violence is not perpetrated by all or even a majority of muslims it clearly meets with the approval of a majority of muslims and that is a pretty big problem imo.
