Mason’s 2002 visit to Cal Poly galvanized a free speech case against student Steve Hinkle who simply posted a flyer announcing the speech, which was entitled “It’s Okay to Leave the Plantation.” The Cal Poly administration charged Hinkle of disruption. The case was settled in Hinkle’s favor with the intervention of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), and Cal Poly had to pay $40,000 in legal fees to Hinkle.
