"Sure you could survive, as long as you stick with your own kind"
I thought we were all of the same kind, its called the human race!
I would welcome your first statement. Unfortunately for most with non european or caucasian background this is not.
What do you mean when you say racism is more covert than overt? Is it somehow regarded as the norm because that does not seem to be very
politically correct especially in this day and age!
im not sure how to better define the covert than overt. What i was picturing whilst typing that was that racism rarely face to face, its more of a
behind your back kind of racism. When it is face to face its almost never between 2 individual it would be the mass against 1 individual. This has now
gotten worse and worse.
If you are going to suggest Australia is any more racist than anywhere else im afraid you need to back up your claim with some facts buddy.

Unfortunately i am not here to educate people that racism is very much alive and kicking and has been throughout the history of australia. Only those
who have experienced the ugliness of it know about it. Frankly i have had enough.
Hell, the country was stolen from Aborigines, in return they were slaughtered and had their kids taken away. Not all the kids were taken away, only
the fairest of the aborigines were taken away and placed in the custody of a white families, the darker skinned kids, well they werent popular. Are
they also not kids? wasnt their welfare just as important as the fair skinned child?. Oh how about the good old 'White Australia' policy which is very
much active till this day.
How about the latest issue that the chinese are buying up all the properties in Australia. Yet in reality the chinese only make up 14% of foreign
direct investment and they buy up the most expensive properties, not middle class properties. The other 86%, the number that was not discussed or may
have been but conveniently disregarded (ie covert), were investors from America and Canada and Europe. How come there was no anti american or european
or canadian slogan then? only 'the chinese are buying up australia' slogan. Same case when the japanese were doing the same thing. Yet the british
investor were welcomed without a hissy fit.
I have given you some recent and historical facts. What other facts would you like me to get off my ass and give to you?
