We've been following The Slants, "the band who must not be named" for a while, especially since some people have also accused us of having a name that's controversial. Congrats to The Slants on the Supreme Court ruling this week that support freedom of speech, our first amendment! #beyellow #yellowfevereats -------– @aclu_nationwide The Supreme Court ruled today that the government can't deny a trademark to Asian-American rockers The Slants just because it doesn't like their name. The Slants chose their name to reclaim and redeem a racial slur often used against Asians and Asian-Americans. Today's decision will put a stop to the absurd practice of federal Patent and Trademark Office examiners acting as formal speech police #firstamendment #1a #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed
Congrats to @slantsofficial on a Supreme Court ruling in their favor! Their case came up when we were checking to see if anyone else had the name Slant'd, and we couldn't believe they weren't allowed to reclaim this term, as we had also set out to do. We love the name Slant'd. Not only does it reclaim a derogatory stereotype, but it also embodies our provocative nature: through the work we showcase, we plan to tell it like it is, and bring the good, the bad and the ugly front and center so that we can spark meaningful conversation about #AsianAmerican culture. We're thrilled for the Slants' victory, but we also can't help but lament the fact that the ruling doesn't distinguish between reclaimed names (such as The Slants) vs appropriated names (like the Redskins). Freedom of speech is certainly a right that we should all have the ability to exercise, but not at the expense of others. What are your thoughts on the ruling? #theslants #slantdstories (pic via @slantsofficial account)

The Slants win Supreme Court battle over band's name in trademark dispute. The government can’t deny full trademark protection to allegedly racially offensive marks. #freespeech #TheSlants #TheSupremeCourt #firstamendmentlaw #firstamendmentattorney #SupremeCourt #trademark #trademarklaw #redskins #washingtonredskins #freedomofspeech #firstamendmentrights #USPTO #intellectualproperty #IPlaw
Congrats to The Slants on their Supreme Court victory. It's a Rock n' Roll Nation! @slantsofficial β€’ β€’ #theslants #rock #rocknroll #music #cd #asian #music
Rock and roll strikes a blow against fascist political correctness. What part of FREE speech don't you hypersensitive idiots understand? Congrats to the Slants who fought back and won.
