Please let me state that I live in the UK and I'm not familair with Australian Equal Opportunities and Diversity legislation.
However, I've looked up this on the Internet (using Google of course) and found this:
"RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACT 1975
- SECT 18C
Offensive behaviour because of race, colour or national or ethnic
It is unlawful for a person to do an act, otherwise than in private, if:
the act is reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people; and
the act is done because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin of the other person or of some or all of the people in the group.
Note: Subsection (1) makes certain acts unlawful. Section 46P of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 allows people to make
complaints to the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission about unlawful acts. However, an unlawful act is not necessarily a criminal offence.
Section 26 says that this Act does not make it an offence to do an act that is unlawful because of this Part, unless Part IV expressly says that the
act is an offence.
For the purposes of subsection (1), an act is taken not to be done in private if it:
causes words, sounds, images or writing to be communicated to the public; or
is done in a public place; or
is done in the sight or hearing of people who are in a public place.
In this section:
public place includes any place to which the public have access as of right or by invitation, whether express or implied and whether or not a charge
is made for admission to the place."

It occurs to me that this "gentleman" might be in breach of such legislation - as he seems to be inciting race-hate?
It'd be nice to see him taken to court....
