This is what we would deal with without our First Amendment

Via Insty: Europe doesn't have anything like it, and as such has to deal with crap like this:

The mother of a seven-year-old boy was told to sign a school form admitting he was racist after he asked another pupil about the colour of his skin.

Elliott Dearlove had asked a five-year-old boy in the playground whether he was ‘brown because he was from Africa’.

His mother, Hayley White, 29, said she received a phone call last month to say her son had been at the centre of a ‘racist incident’.

This would be bad enough if adults were involved; this kid is seven. Unbelievably, the incident will undergo "further investigation."

Remember, too, this sort of nonsense would result if people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg get their way. Many "progressives" feel that our First Amendment is a huge impediment to "social justice;" y'know, like being able to "eradicate" racism by branding children as "racists" for innocent interrogatives.
