A group or individual by the name "Anonymous" has hacked and taken over two of MTV music websites and defaced them with racial and offensive images. The sites AllHipHop.com and SOHH.com were going down shortly after but are back up again.

A MTV spokesperson said: "AllHipHop and SOHH, two pioneering Web sites that have been in the industry for over 10 years, are appalled by the unprovoked racist attacks of these cyber terrorists.".

SOHH CEO Felicia Palmer whose personal data and passwords were hacked released a statement saying: "It appears that hackers are specifically targeting Black, Hispanic, Asian and Jewish youth who ascribe to hip-hop culture".

The FBI and the new Strategic Alliance Cyber Crime Working Group - a cyber cops group in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada - is working to track down the attackers.

you realize, of course, that neither of those sites are related to MTV.

It looks like MTV reported about it exclusively, so it should say "A MTV report said" not "A MTV spokesperson said".

I am a former member of Anonymous. I quit because our leader, Paul Fetch, was getting too carried away. It used to be that we were there just to protest against Scientology, but Paul Fetch has turned into a racist madman. Some of his protesters even do things like drug dealing and robberies during their protests! We have to stop Paul Fetch and his group of Anonymous. There are many groups that call themselves Anonymous, but the one that we need to stop is led by Paul Fetch and operates under the codes "Chanology" and "Enturbulation." Someone needs to stop these "protesters" before their racist messages of hate get too far.

They started it. Posted racist comments referring to the users of our websites as "crackers" or "chinks" (somehow assuming that computer literate users are Asian) and proceeded to "call us out". We simply gave them what they were asking for, and they proceeded to play the race card. Not impressed.

Raid HQ @ http://411chan.org/raid/res/12.html reads differently. And you miss out on something: Nobody is forced to propagate racist terms, destroy or criminally take down other people's sites. That's a choice you have and a couple of months in jail might be the price you pay for it.

All one needs to do is Google "luana + scientology" to get a quick read on how believable Luana's reports are. Couldn't help but notice the COMPLETE lack of any attributable information in this latest "story." Where are the names, dates and places? As usual -- not ONE verifiable fact that can be checked by a third party. Pure scientology cult propaganda
