That is correct.

I stand for your right to say anything you want
whether it be racist or sexist does not constitue an
exception. I argue for your right to speak out against
anything you find objectionable including racism and
sexism. I stand in defense of your freedom to speak
your mind.

If you do not allow someone to be sexist or racist
then you value your judgment as being greater than
freedom. And to excersize your judgement requires you
to assume power over another human.

I do not require governance to deal with racism in
speech. I affirm my strength as a free thinking human
without laws that control me and put you into a
position of power. I am born with dignity, I want to
keep it and use it.

Do you think individuals lack the ability to speak
against racism?

What does your calm have to do with anything? Is that
a threat in cloak; be careful or I'll lose my calm and
unleash my special brand of hell upon you. If that's
the case and you support the governance of free speech
then you are exactly the kind of person I fear and

If that statement is to say, I'm trying to remain calm
in order to discuss something then we freely debate.

It's not within my power to interpret your meaning as
it applies to the interests of this community and to
construct a fuckin' rule. It is your opportunity and
right to make your meaning clear and known to
everyone. This isn't the greatest example of U.S. free
speech in practice but it's an example.
