What is Racism?

 

Race can be defined as:

"A classification system used to categorise humans into distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation.”

 

Racism can be defined as:

“The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”

 

When a group of people are labeled according to a certain religious belief or affiliation and their access to public services, jobs, livelihoods and social freedoms are denied or restricted on the basis of this belief or affiliation this is racism.

How to Indict Robert Thurman

I love "how-to" guides. For me it's one of the great advances of the internet - sharing knowledge and information quickly and easily.

One big downside of the internet is that it has reduced our capacity to understand how harmful our actions may be to other people. Or, we may be aware of how harmful they are, but fail to recognize the other person as having feelings in the same way as we do.

This is why I believe cyber bullying is on the increase, it's the disassociation between our actions and the hurt experienced by others.

Bullying is a big dislike of mine and in researching this subject I have encountered an unprecedented amount of bullying, threats and intimidation - sometimes from people who really should know better.

The best way I have found to approach bullying is to either ignore it, or stand up to it. The best way I have found to stand up to bullying is to involve authorities because bullies often act outside of the law and the rules.

One such example occurred recently where I was the victim of online bullying from Professor Robert A. Thurman. Professor Thurman has taken exception to my highlighting the oppression experienced by Dorje Shugden Buddhists in the Tibetan exile community, and rather than debating this instead decided to try and bully me into being quiet.

As I make clear on this website my identity is kept anonymous through the use of a 'pen name' because I have been threatened. To try and reveal my identity places my safety and the safety of my family at risk. Knowing this it appears that Professor Thurman tried to enlist members of the 'Anonymous' hacking group to hack into my website and Twitter to expose my identity.

Aside from being quite rude it is also an offence. So I took legal advice and am presently liaising with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as to the best way to proceed with a formal complaint of criminal activity for them to investigate.

Then I thought, I'm not the only one who has experienced bullying. I know many people who read this website have also experienced it, some of them have even experienced being targeted by one of Professor Thurman's Twitter lists.

Naturally I thought what better way to combine my 2 loves of standing up to bullies and 'how-to' guides.

The following information is presented so that anyone reading this can report Professor Thurman's alleged criminal activity so that both the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the FBI can better investigate it.

You might want to report it to the NYPD because Professor Thurman resides in New York, or you might choose to report it to the FBI because some or all of the targeted people reside outside of New York state, or you may choose to report it to both.

Don't worry, you don't need to be in the US to report an alleged crime that has taken place on US soil, you can do it over the internet no matter where you reside.

Also anyone can report an alleged crime, you don't have to be the victim, you can simply be a concerned citizen.
