Jews and Sikhs[edit]

With regard to the line: "deliberately provoking hatred of a racial group, specifically made to protect Jews and Sikhs who were being targeted". This line is wrong. I have no idea where the writer got the idea that it was for jews and sikhs. The bill was to protect all races, pakistani, indian, afro caribbean, african, chinese, (even white) all of whom were being targeted. Maybe they got the idea from discussion of the "religious hatred bill" where it was argued that jews and sikhs had an extra protection of their religion because they are seen as both a race and a religion. But that doesn't change what this bill was about. I am removing the last part of this line. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 87.102.21.213 (talk) 02:05, 23 February 2007 (UTC).

Other crimes[edit]

The editors should maybe look up whether it is forbidden to incite to other crimes. For instance, if any notable media began to promote pedophilia and rape, would there be laws against that ? It would still be forbidden, even though there are maybe no specific laws on this. ADM (talk) 00:59, 19 March 2009 (UTC) Incitement of Hatred is too often linked to race, discounting incitement against just about anything. In the USA where the media is not beholden to any guidelines as to the facts they routinely incite hatred as a means of promoting the outrage that increases viewership and therefore ad revenue. As we know from the study of psychology- an incited brain utilizes parts of the brain that serve 'fight or flight' reactionary behavior rather than rational, thoughtful analysis. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.89.184.72 (talk) 19:51, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Sectarianism and Northern Ireland[edit]

It might be worth pointing how these acts relate to NI, since there is a known history of religious hatred and incitement in the last century - The article gives me the impression that the act is solely related to immigration, integration and multiculturalism - the United Kingdom has struggled to deal with sectarianism in parts for much of the last century, as well as the aforementioned difficulties with the large scale immigration of the post-WW2 years.

500 Years[edit]

The documentary 500 Years Later claims that the first person convicted under some British law was a Caribbean man. Does anyone know what they're referring to? Most of their claims seem more verifiable. 76.21.107.221 (talk) 21:48, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
