Summary
If the freedoms of speech and dissent are protected by the Bill of Rights, to what degree should hate speech be included? Conversely, if "political correctness" is intended to counteract discrimination and intolerance, should it be used as a vehicle of censorship? Does PC heighten public awareness of marginalized groups or is it censorship designed to limit intellectual inquiry in the name of particular political agendas? This film examines five controversial incidents at universities around the country involving conflicts of values and "political correctness". Cases involve the use of racially insensitive language, gay rights and religious expression, pursuit of multicultural ideals, sexual harassment in the classroom, and radical feminism
