Speech that conveys reasoned opinion, principled conviction, or speculation
is not harassment. For example, the assertions that ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½all whites are racistÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ or
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½affirmative action is wrongÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ or ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½Christians are foolish to believe ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã‚Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ are not
harassment. Of course, the mere claim of engagement in reasoned opinion
is not sufficient to lift the charge of harassment. For example, shouting
racist insults under a residence-hall window at night cannot disguise itself as 9
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½reasoned opinion.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ However, debates, discussions, arguments, however lively,
do not give grounds for harassment charges.
