“Nobody cares about 18c” | Catallaxy Files

Marcus …

If “no one cares about 18c” then how can you claim that repealing it will unleash a wave of racism in the streets? Either no one cares about it, in which case repealing or amending it will make no difference to anything, or a great many people care about it in which case the government has an obligation to act.

Apparently, people on Twitter are sharing their experiences of racism (all of which appear to be quite recent). The fact that this abuse has been given while 18c has been in place seems to have escaped the commentariat, along with the implication that as a practical shield against actualy, bona fide racism, it’s basically useless.
