Being proud of your country has nothing to do with racism
Reading comprehension failure. That is not what the article is about. But if you cannot understand that pride in a country means less pride for
another country then you are just as lost as the flag waving masses.
Deeper issue comprehension failure!
What country in the world does not have citizenry not 'native' to that country?
What countries have not been initially invaded throughout history by another country?
The race of a country is not determined by the beauty of the countryside, or the beauty you see within it.
Many countries are going through the throws of a type of multiculturalism (most often than not through the auspices of 'invasions' of the modern era)
that is blurring the lines between what constitutes the 'race' of a country. The 'old [smelly] guard' are gathering posses and loading muskets, laying
claim to lands which were originally...lets not gild the lily...STOLEN...
Forget this by remembering a more palatable version (in the case of Australia) the INVASION by the British, and you are well on your way to the type
of racism that divides nations anywhere on the world.
What rulebook instituted the law of mutual exclusivity?...or is this just your 'humble' opinion?
Anyone can be as proud of any country they like whether they live in it or not...I'm proud of my neighbours garden! I don't live in his house
though...yet there are places in Australia I am not particularly proud of...and there are Aussies I cringe at, institutions I loathe...does that make
me un-Australian? And if it does...what the hell is Australian?
Flag waving masses...proud Aussies buying flags manufactured in China...kinda ironical, don't you think? Lol
