    Cyber-Racism Summit to Be Held in Sydney

    Leading minds from the anti-discrimination and internet communities will join forces to tackle online racism in Sydney.

    The Australian Human Rights Commission says instances of cyber-racism, which includes racist websites, images, blogs, videos and comments on website forums, are on the rise.

    In a bid to solve the problem, the commission has teamed up with the Internet Industry Association to co-host a cyber-racism summit on Tuesday.

    Race Discrimination Commissioner Graeme Innes said the summit provided a unique opportunity for international cyber-safety experts to come together and develop ways of tackling online racism.

    "This is definitely not going to be a passive conference," he said in a statement.

    Association chief executive Peter Coroneos said the summit would help internet industry professionals better understand cyber-racism from the perspective of those affected by it.

    The nature of online racism, where it is happening, and ways of counteracting it will all be on the summit's agenda.

    Fighting racism? Highly doubtful, more likely it is more about suppressing the spread of information that does not fit well with their world view. Namely that all cultures and races, and even more when the original is European/Germanic, should be exterminated and be replaced by a global mono-culture and race.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    Basically I feel it is about denying people the right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

    It is a total disgrace that people cannot have the right to say what they think and feel.

    Pretty soon you won't be allowed to think it either. In a few parts of the U.S. they've started using mandatory lie-detector tests to determine whether or not police officers are racialists so that they can weed them out.

    That pretty much hearkens back to Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, & Big Brother. Pretty soon no one will even be aloud to even think or have any emotion.

    It doesn't specify what cyber-racism is, what it consists of nor what the nature of it is.

    The plurality of the 'summit' coupled with the categorical, branding and somewhat criminilizing terminology is nothing more than a well thought out political deterrent and is most probably to be aimed towards anything culturally preservative on any level, particularly if the culture in question is a European one. Associate the preservation of culture with a perception of racism and people wont want to associate themselves with the preservation of culture. This is so ideological and rhetoric that they don't even need to bother trying to disguise it.

    Onwards and upwards, towards a global mono-culture, right?

    On a more positive note, I get the feeling that the more they try to control people the more people will wake up and realise whats happening.

    These days people are waking up to things like the new world order etc. A few years back people (myself included) hadn't a clue what was happening in the world.

    I'm not surprised that "racism" is on the rise in cyberspace. The Internet is a great tool because it offers ways to escape censorship.
