"the slants' — free at last

Supreme Court rules, 8-0, that government can't deny a trademark for "racially offensive"or "disparaging" names.

The case concerned a rock band comprised of Asian-Americans, who chose the name as a way to claim as their own, and thus destroy, the derogatory term. A lower court had ruled that "offensive" names, even if intended for positive purposes, could be banned—an appellate court overruled that decision because it violated the plaintiffs' right to freedom of speech which—reminder to college administrators everywhere—is protected by the First Amendment. Today's unanimous decision (Justice Gorsuch was not part of the Court when the case was argued) may help stem, or at least slow down, the left's attempt to suppress its opponents.

it will also put the kibosh on the ongoing suit to force the Washington Redskins to change their name, and, who knows? May even end similar lawsuits attacking the mascots of college and even high school teams.
