Criminal law provisions against racial discrimination

I was reading the Federal Commission site and found this.
I know most of the people are aware about this. May be some of you will be interesting in knowing this.

Re: Criminal law provisions against racial discrimination

Thx, I left comp at work and only use iPhone at home

So summa summarum some apparently innocent discussions and banter on our forum can be seen as playing with fire and non-PC.
