Should social media posts be banned if they offend a vast majority of people?
Most of us probably believe the answer is no. We should all be allowed freedom of expression. After all, free speech is a fundamental right. Besides, who’s to determine what’s acceptable versus objectionable?
However, let’s also agree that social media posts widely considered offensive should be accompanied by consequences.
This too becomes problematic.

….with Black people.
….and with women.
That means, we have a problem. Now, he’s now our problem.
