Introduction & Definition: J.U.C. MEDIA, RESEARCH AND WRITING, and potential SCHOLARSHIP

“Even though my hopes for his physical existence, intellect, and potential faded out, I am holding on to the hope he gave me at the age of 7.
I am still inspired by him, through his words, both written in paper and in my mind, that from this point on, I will NOT only focus on him, and/or on keeping my hope and love alive for my older son and grand-children, but also on expanding that hope and love from the borders of my immediate family to underprivileged children, kids and youth, to a global family.

While I was going through the past, present, and future times with my son, looking from the window at the pitch-dark sky with bright stars, I thought of doing something constructive, which could also help me hold on…
This led me thinking to compile his ideas in a book project and introduce an award program in his name, with a specific target for school-students and youth…

THE U.S. PEOPLE ARE CONFLICTED ABOUT WHAT HATE SPEECH IS.

75th COMMEMORATIVE ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ

Sevgin OKTAY, Representative of The Light Millennium to the United Nations Department of Global Communications
We know that Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.  The U.S. Supreme Court on the other hand has repeatedly ruled that hate speech is legally protected free speech under the First Amendment and therefore, Hate speech in the United States is not regulated, “in contrast to that of most other liberal democracies,” as noted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres.

Cumhuriyet idaresinin ilk yılları, 1923’te nüfus sayımında kadınlarında sayılması, 1924 seçme ve seçilme hakları reddedilmişti. Atatürk çok istese de bu yıllarda, Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi’nin kabul etmediği kadın haklarının zamanlamasının, o ilk yıllar için çok da uygun olmadığını gördü.
2 yılı daha bekliyecekti.”
