Regulation of Internet Hate Sites
A hate crime is commonly defined as
“a criminal offense committed against persons, property, or society that
is motivated, in whole or in part, by an offender’s bias against an
individual’s or a group’s perceived race, religion, ethnic/national origin,
gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation” (Taylor, Fritsch,
Liederbach, & Holt, 2015, p. 220). Hate crimes are illegal and most states
have hate crime statutes that provide enhanced penalties for these types of
crimes. Contemporary technology allows hate to be spread farther and wider
through the use of hate sites than can be done by word of mouth. These sites
are accessible to anyone with a computer. While hate crimes are illegal and
often carry harsh penalties, hate sites are not illegal. Those who launch hate
sites rely on the U.S. Constitution and their right to freedom of speech as
protection from the law.
For this Discussion, consider whether
hate sites should be monitored and regulated. Think about whether or not
monitoring and regulating these sites might infringe upon freedom of speech.
