SAY NO TO RACISM  

Dear Rebecca,

We are indeed disappointed about your decision not to prosecute Professor Spurr as we consider that he is a racist and bigot as revealed in his private emails for the public purpose of communicating his racial hatred to the minorities in Australia.  This is despite the fact that we are aware of the of the explanation of Justice Scalia of the United States Supreme Court regarding the repercussions of  s 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, 1975 (Cth) which “in truths amounts to a ‘personal discretion to do justice” as quoted by Dan Meagher  of the School of Law of Deakin University, in his article entitled: SO FAR SO GOOD?: A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF RACIAL VILIFICATION LAWS IN AUSTRALIA. 

Dan without mincing his words also implies that the vilifications laws is meant to protect the meek from the heartless in these words: “It may be true that morality cannot be legislated, but behaviour can be regulated. The law may not change the heart, but it can restrain the heartless”.

You must not elude the primary goal of racial vilification laws in Australia — to regulate racial vilification without curbing legitimate  public communication.  The vilifying   communication of Professor Spurr in his private emails is a form of legitimate public communication which has been abused and misused by the Professor in his public position and his public duties for his private and personal agenda of ill-will and maliciously harming the minorities of Australia of which we are their representatives as it has crossed the threshold of harm of the s.18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, 1975 (Cth).

Yours sincerely,

Dear Eddie

I refer to your recent contact about Professor Barry Spur.

You raised concerns regarding a number of emails sent by Prof Spur, where he allegedly used a number of derogatory terms.

As you are aware,  under the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth), the Commission can consider complaints of racial hatred. Racial hatred is

  • an act that is done in public;
  • which is done because of the race, colour, or national or ethnic origin of a person or group; and which is
  • reasonably likely in all the circumstances to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate that person or group.

I appreciate the concerns you raised. Unfortunately, it is not clear whether the Commission can consider them as a  complaint it is not clear the alleged conduct took place in public. It would appear that these emails were allegedly sent by Prof Spur to a number of university associates.

Should you have any further queries, please advise by return email or call our National Information Service on 1300 656 419.

Dear Dr Tim Soutphommasane,

Professor Barry Spurr being honored by virtue of his position of responsibility should not now use his hindsight as an excuse for the mens rea of his action against the minority of the people of Australia .  His greater culpability of that action must now be put to test so that the Rule of Law is being seen to be allowed by the majority of the people of Australia to prevail in Australia.

We therefore wish to lodge a complaint against professor Barry Spurr under S18C of the RDA as he has vilified the minority in this country.

We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours respectfully,

Eddie Hwang
