What does the law say about vilification?
In NSW it is generally against the law to vilify people because of their:
race, colour, nationality, descent, ethnic, ethno-religious or national origin
homosexuality (lesbian or gay)
HIV or AIDS status
transgender status.
This includes vilification because someone is thought to be lesbian, gay or transgender even if they are not, or thought to have HIV or AIDS, even if they don't.
NSW anti-discrimination law defines vilification as a public act that could incite or encourage hatred, serious contempt or severe ridicule towards people because of the above characteristics.
The vilification law only covers acts that are in public. It does not cover acts that are not public, for example abuse over a back fence that no-one else can hear.
Public acts could include the following:
image of hands texting on mobile phonesremarks in a newspaper, journal or other publications
remarks on radio or television
material on the internet, including social networking sites such as Facebook and micro-blogging services such as Twitter
graffiti
putting up posters or stickers
verbal abuse
making speeches or statements
making gestures
wearing badges or clothes with slogans on them.
How can I work out if something is covered by vilification law?
To work out whether a particular act is covered by the vilification law, there are three things to check:
Did it happen publicly?
Was it possible for any member of the public other than those directly involved to see it, hear it or read it?
Could it have incited or encouraged hatred, serious contempt or severe ridicule?
How serious was it? Would it have had an impact on other people?
Is it an acceptable type of free speech and therefore legal?
Freedom of speech is also important in our society, so the vilification law makes allowances for this. The following are not against the law:
A fair report by the media of someone else's act of vilification. The media will only be acting against the law if they add extra vilifying material or commentary to their report.
Acts that are done 'reasonably and in good faith' for academic, artistic, scientific, research or other purposes in the 'public interest'.
Material that is privileged, such as statements made in parliament.
If you are not sure about whether the act you are concerned about is against the law, phone our Enquiry Service for more information.

Xenophobia Definition:
Racially-based intolerance of immigrants.
Related Terms: Bigotry, Racism
Latin for fear (phobia) of strangers (xeno).
In law, Xenophobia becomes an issue when it takes the form of racism as an expression of the superiority of citizens towards non-nationals, particularly immigrants, refugees and asylum-seekers, and the exclusion of the latter.1
In a book review published in the Columbia Journal of European Law, the reviewer repeated these words, offering a "very general definition" of xenophobia as:
"... the dread of foreigners as a group, whether defined legally, as immigrants, or by their strangeness as a visible group...."
In the United Nations 2011 publication United Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance

Racism Definition:
Superiority-based ideology which discriminates individuals or a group, based on their immutable characteristic of race.
Related Terms: Bigotry, Xenophobia, Discrimination
Racism expresses itself as discrimination of an individual ,or a group of individuals, on racial characteristics.
In the United Kingdom, the Race Relations Act 1976, while not strictly defining racism per se, defines racial discrimination as follows:
"A person discriminates against another in any circumstances relevant for the purposes of any provision of this Act if - (a) on racial grounds he treats that other less favourably than he treats or would treat other persons; or (b) he applies to that other a requirement or condition which he applies or would apply equally to persons not of the same racial group as that other but - (i) which is such that the proportion of persons of the same racial group as that other who can comply with it is considerably smaller than the proportion of persons not of that racial group who can comply with it; and (ii) which he cannot show to be justifiable irrespective of the colour, race, nationality or ethnic or national origins of the person to whom it applied; and (iii) which is to the detriment of that other because he cannot comply with it."

Racial Discrimination Law and Legal Definition
Racial discrimination is the practice of letting a person's race or skin color unfairly become a factor when deciding who receives a job, promotion, or other employment benefit. It most often affects minority individuals who feel they have been unfairly discriminated against in favor of a Caucasian (or white) individual, but there have been recent cases where whites have claimed that reverse discrimination has occurred—that is, a minority received unfairly favorable treatment at the expense of a white individual.
