Hate speech

The University of Alabama has published new guidelines on hate speech. Apparently language designed to single people out in a negative way for membership of a particular gorup counts. This is interesting. Does this mean universities will be banning the use of the word "bourgeois". I have noticed it is used almost exclusively by left wing academics who wish to whip up hostility to entrepreneurs. It is only ever meant in a derogatory way. So it is hate speech. When is it going to stop?
