18C Offensive behaviour because of race, colour or national or ethnic origin
(Note: the word ‘origin’ can be defined as “a person’s social background or ancestry”. Social background can refer to a person’s adopted religion, especially if born into a country where culture is somewhat dictated by religion)
(1) It is unlawful for a person to do an act, otherwise than in private, if:
(a) the act is reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people; and
(b) the act is done because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin of the other person or of some or all of the people in the group.
In every single post published by theantibogan on this website, the comments put forth by the perpetrators of discrimination would almost certainly be found offensive if read by the people belonging to the race/culture/religion they are referring to. Comments found on this website are made almost exclusively because of people’s race, colour and/or national/ethnic origin.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1), an act is taken not to be done in private if it:
(a) causes words, sounds, images or writing to be communicated to the public; or
(b) is done in a public place; or
(c) is done in the sight or hearing of people who are in a public place.
