Racist Australians

Anybody who says that Australia is any more open and accepting than any other country in the world needs to have a decent think.

I was ashamed to be Australian when my blearly sllep-deprived eyes read the paper this morning. What I saw and read was basically just the epitome of redneck Australia, as 'men of Middle Eastern appearance' were bashed and attacked by gangs of Idiot Australians. Apparently there's been bashings and rioting from both groups involved.

I think we as a country are kicking goals in many ways with racial recognition and acceptance and what not, but there's still so so far to go.

I dunno who started it, and I don't really care. (Answering that question is frivolous anyway, nobody ever really knows)

I just pray that the churches and mosques up that way are doing their bit for racial and religious harmony in their local area.

Well, John Howard said that Australia doesn't have a racism problem, so it must be okay. It's lucky he told us, eh?

Yeah- saw it last night on the news. couldn't believe my eyes for a second there. It seems anything (like looking middle eastern like) will spark a riot.
It really makes me think, what's next?

Yeah that is good he informed us, all those wog and leb bashing text messages have obviously been misinterpreted!

And don't get me started on that Alan Jones dickhead... Some of the stuff he's said, he seriously should be questioned by the authorities, and possibly charged for inciting the riots...

Yeah who knows hey Esky-lets just hope stuff doesn't ark up down here.

Interesting thoughts Kimmy-good 2 cya on here!

Problem is Digs, tit-for-tat
continues until both sides
stop the causes of the problem.
Causes must identified and
addressed, or little changes -
resentful undercurrents continue.
There have been several turf
wars around the world lately,
and we are no longer exempt.
Jesus told us to be light in the
world, not coverers of darkness.
