Institutional Racism & Homophobia Must Be Stamped Out

Subtle Racist Humour on web sites is still HATE
For those of you, who believe that institutional racism and homophobia is a thing of the past,think again

Good old-fashioned bigotry is alive and well, as many cling to outdated views through fear and ignorance. Bigots can no longer run around in white hoods, but they can spread hate from their computers. Undertones might be subtle but they are unmistakable.

Expressions of hatred toward someone on account of that person's colour, race, nationality (including citizenship), ethnic or national origin, religion, or sexual orientation is forbidden. Any communication which is threatening, abusive or insulting, and is intended to harass, alarm, or distress someone is forbidden. The penalties for hate speech include fines, imprisonment, or both.
