Hate Speech On Social Media


Today we are going to talk about hate speech,

What is hate speech?
Hate speech is speech which attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or gender. … Critics have argued that the term “hate speech” is used to silence critics of social policies that have been poorly implemented. WIKIPEDIA 
In my opinion, the Hate speech is a way of speech that used on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or gender. In Indonesia, it was (SARA) Suku Adat Ras Agama (Tribe of Race and Religion) the act was including, spreading wrong/fake news (hoax), bullying someone by Tribe of Race and their Religion, using rumors to mix the fact and the hoax blend in, make money by doing The black campaign. as we know the black campaign is an attempt to undermine or question a person’s reputation, by issuing negative propaganda. It can be applied to individuals or groups. Common targets are public positions, politicians, political candidates, activists, and ex-husbands.
In this particular day, everyone easily spreading rumors, vilification, hate speech, bullying, and another way to bad-mouthing and cornering other people. Simply because they hate them. Whether they know the target or not. they can easily say or posting bad things on their social media whether it’s true or not. because they were doing before they thinking what was the impact if they do the hate speech, for example, “I hate you because your face is ugly, why don’t you go to die soon!” or some other hate speech that fully pushing victims to be depressed, unconfident, feel guilty and feel cornered. so the victims start to think the best way to out of shackles is to commit suicide. When the times go, you think the subject was stopped doing the hate speech? absolutely “NO” they were still doing it, and they have no regret after what they did, they think the victims did not appreciate what criticism they give as a positive feedback to the victim (they think the criticism as same as what they doing to hate speech the victims). So please stop doing a hate speech, before it’s too late. because the internet is growing. it starts by you. So please be kind and respect the others, spread the positive vibes to others.
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
Nelson Mandela
