I do not support the bill in its entirety. It is ridiculous that you can be held responsible for the actions of someone else, or be in breach of the law because you did/said something unintentionally. It also goes against the freedom of association clause as entrenched in the Constitution.
I cannot accept that I cannot excercise my religious beliefs because it might offend someone of a different religion.

Dit bevat die potensiaal om die reeds brose vrede wat daar tans in ons land bestaan, ernstig te bedreig. Dit kan 'n wapen wees in die hande van rewolusionêres wat vrede en orde tussen geloofsgemeenskappe kan destabiliseer watkan oorspoel ook na ander semelewingsektore waar daar tans sterk mededinging bestaan om welke geldige redes ook al. Kriteria wat aangewend gaan word, is van 'n totaal onaanvaarbare subjektiewe aard. Geregtigheid gaan ernstig aangetas word, en presies die teenoorgestelde van wat dié gewysigde wet beoog, gaan bereik word. Dit is nie in die beste belang van Suid-Afrika en sy inwonerverskeidenheid nie. Dit gaan wrywing, spanning en konfrontasie ontlok tussen partye wat liefs vermy moet word. Wie ook al dié wet wil deurvoer, dra nie die belange van alle Suid-Afrikaners en hul duur verworwe vryheid op die hart nie.

half baked ideas and open to abuse, need to go back to the drawing board and rethink the
right reasons for the bill and come up with answers fair and proper.

The definition of discrimination is too broad, which means that anyone just taking offence at what one has said in private or on social media, can take action at such a person even if the intention was never one of discrimination.
Everyone has a right to religious freedom and a right to have an opinion, so if someone has a more conservative view on some issues, they can be taken on based on their religious views or opinions. This law could potentially end up being used as a witch-hunt against more conservative citizens.
Anyone can now retaliate against someone perceived to be discriminating even if the intent was never to discriminate.
While I do agree that there should be equality in our society, this law will inevitably create a bigger scope of discrimination against those who have a conservative view on certain current issues. This law might only be on the side of the more liberal citizens which makes it a very biased law in it's current form. The thing that it want to prevent will be the thing that it creates.

This sounds hypocritical as the anc government has legislated beeee which is blatant discrimination and they bring in "so called professionals " from Cuba, when we have people in this country who can do the job ten times better than these imports.

Too many bills are being implemented and the law enforcers are incapable of administering the existing laws. We have sufficient laws in this regard and the courts are more than able to pronounce on instances that require a specific remedy.
Pass laws that imprison corrupt people and be brave enough to allow a strict sentence that does not permit parole.

Current BEE laws are discriminating already and by creating more fancy definitions will not make any positive changes.
Hire the best person for a job with the required criteria to do the job regardless of race and stop trying to figure out what is discrimination and what not.
Focus on values that will make a difference in this country.
Laws and definitions on paper do not make changes.

No ONE has the rite to infringe on my freedom of thought and freedom of speech.

This bill allows anyone to accuse anyone of anything they like.

I DO NOT CONSENT.

Intent has always been a basis in law. To now say one can be guilty of discrimination without having to prove intent is rubbish.
If this is the case the Government already practice inequality & are guilty of discrimination against minority groups through there BEE laws.

Broadening those definitions can only lead to even more jobs being filled by unqualified, incompetent people! We have seen the consequences over the last 20 + years and look at the state of our country!!

Will this do away with discrimination? I don't think so! Rather educate people to be more tolerant so we can all live together in peace.

The wording seems too broad and ambiguous, can lead to manipulation and misuse.
And what about BEE which blatantly discriminates against males and whites, coloureds and Indians? Will this new Bill address this issue?
