Classism, Elitism and Racism in Mexico: Non-Discrimination and Freedom of Speech

In the paper the author aims to develop a criterion to determine if different forms of expression can constitute forms of discrimination by themselves or if it is necessary for them to be accompanied by something else to constitute a discrimination. In short, it is not the expression —written or oral— on its own, in addition to the expressive dimension it is necessary an authoritative one. For that purpose, he will revisit the tension between the freedom of expression and the non-discrimination clause, in general, by identifying the cases in which an expression reinforces an indirect or structural discrimination, regardless of the clear and present danger test or for being unintentional, because it proceeds from a position of authority or power. Finally, his conclusion is basically that the time has come not only to speak of classism, elitism and racism, but also to put an end to it.
