The lab in question is not in the South.
If that's the actual warning notice, the place that did this to your
students is Yale Labs in Los Angeles-- Burbank, to be exact. That sounds exactly
like their notice.
This lab has a ridiculous content policy that no other lab has any more.
It's also arbitrary, because you never know what's going to be "offensive" to
 them. So shop elsewhere with ease. Anywhere
Yale, by the way, is run by a bunch of right-wing Christian zealots. Their
defenders always try to claim, too, that they have no policy to really
speak of that creates difficulties, but they do. As evidenced here.
IMO, for a lab to have such a content policy is like a liquor store
refusing to sell cigarettes-- it's like, part of the business, and if you don't
like certain kinds of product then get into another line of work.

Bono (in Virginia) has been discussed on Frameworks in the past as a lab
with very conservative content policies... Maybe them?
