Toxic ha­tred is threat to our safety

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

RACE hate aimed at Harry and Meghan – or any­one – is ou­tra­geous.

This kind of dis­gust­ing, vir­u­lent, racist ha­tred has no place in so­ci­ety – and should have no place on­line. It causes rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion and is deeply toxic to the on­line world.

White supremacy is a threat to our safety and our democ­racy. We’ve seen what can hap­pen when it goes unchecked. Root­ing out racist ha­tred from the in­ter­net is one of the great chal­lenges of our time. It should be a pri­or­ity for pol­i­cy­mak­ers ev­ery­where.

The Gov­ern­ment should make clear how Gab.com and the hate they host should be dealt with in their plans to curb on­line harms.
