Chapman University’s screening of “Can We Take A Joke” was the first event hosted by the new YAL chapter here at Chapman University. While the turnout was small, the people that did come were open to hearing the message presented in the film. We wanted to show students the importance of free speech on college campuses.
The audience generally had a positive response to the idea of political correctness, but many agreed that the situations presented in the film were examples of political correctness gone too far. While the chapter’s turnout was small and the event was more intimate, it is important to note that in this movement, quality is more important to quantity.
