Hate speech/racism


I would like to report the hate speech/racism by the person indicated in the attached screen shot. Not only are her comments derogatory but are also inflicting violence. Her comments are against everything our democracy stands for and an insult to each and everyone of us!

    Insults and hate speech are not the same thing. Refer to this document to understand the official position on when freedom of expression crosses over into hate speech territory: https://www.fxi.org.za/docs-resources/Hate_Speech_and_Freedom_of_Expression_in_SA.pdf

    A small excerpt:
    The South African Constitution states that Freedom of Expression cannot extend to
    expression that enlists:
    a. Propaganda for war;
    b. Incitement of imminent violence; or
    c. Advocacy of hatred that is based on race, ethnicity gender or religion
    and that constitutes incitement to cause harm.
