Me: "Why are you wearing red white and blue for Australia day?"
Person: "Its the Australian flag colors isn't it?"
Me: "Well yes, but its also the same flag colors of
Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Faroe Islands, France, Iceland, North Korea, Laos, Luxembourg, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa,
Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom AND the United States."

Happy multicultural Australia day everyone.

I displayed the Union flag once on my Facebook profile pic, the idea was, that each of us that played one of the games on there, displayed our respective countries flags in memory of those fallen in war (one of the players brothers had just been killed in Afghanistan).

One person de-friended me and 3 more sent me nasty mail calling me a racist for displaying the Union flag.

I still shake my head to this day.

You MUST be joking. Every race has every right to take pride in their culture and not be scoured for the sins of their fathers. Taking pride does not necessitate superiority and anyone who thinks so has an obvious distorted perception.


Race and culture are two different things.

We're all part of the human race anyhow.

Theres a no such things as the human race and nor are we all all one.


There is a thing called the human race. Do you have proof against this? Actual proof, not the deranged rantings of a second class racist who confines in make-belief gods to fill that void that exists in place of a culture. Oh, sorry, was that too candid?


Do you know what the sad thing is though?


Yes, you.


its thats these immigranst are allowed to wave their flags that have no meaning behind it but instead means savagery.


"These immigrants". Dude, there are no "these immigrants" and there never will be. They are just the boogeyman you have created in your mind to point at and feel better about yourself. Read: You are delusional.


Oh and the whole dumbed down,left wing mentality about 'we're all one man' is the childish mentality.


There is no "we're all one man". There is ONE race, the human race. Disagree? Take your delusional rantings to someone who doesn't need proof to be convinced, maybe your mirror image?

Nobody is equal, but equal chances are a right! If you cannot comprehend this then I can safely assure you that your morals are outdated and you are badly in need of an upgrade.

I think we need a minute of silence to honor the slain aborigines which created this day for us to cherish.

declaring anyone racist is ironically, pretty racist and as much as im not racist could a racist not use the its my human right to choose to be racist seem as though prisoners get nice sentances under the premise of they have human rights because were essentialy animals, who like to say oohhh look we can do this were humans but noo were just higher evolved animals, we still view anything as a threat, and get scared, or fight and because were highly evolved we judge behaviour and or people and come up with insults because we know people react i mean if call a fat person fat, do that regulary am i a fatist? probaly im waiting for that to come out as a law haha so they can get me till then,the irritating thing about racisim is because of what my ancestors did to your ancestors i currently in my lifetime, can get called crakker and all sorts of crap but i just have to say ohh sorry ill be going chap,

Did you properly read about the study PhatPackage?

Do you understand how these things are compiled? How statistics represent in this case, a small cross section of people attending an open public event?

Professor Farida Fozdar has a funny name you aren't familiar with, eh caveman? Go back then to your sticks and bone whistles, there are alot of funny names here now and they are not going away. Anyhow she's got your back despite your obvious entranchment on the flag waving 'oi oi oi' embarrassment category.

You wouldn't know, would you, that the 'oi oi oi' chant was learned from the hard right Skinheads of 1970's Britain? Listen to some skinhead punk from the time and see how you feel. At least they did not pretend to be balanced and fair. Heard of the National Front? Openly rascist and proud of it, that and their lowbrow divisive status - oi oi oi... white is right.. Ignorance is bliss? This kind of thinking was best left in 1930's germany where it should have rotted.

You proclaiming to the professor the old crusty 'You're a disgrace" sounds too much like the beer soaked BS 'it's un-AUSTRAAAYAN MAAATE!" and deserves to be taken about as seriously as the slanderous whitewash of a dribbling bogan struggling under the weight of his own convictions. It makes poor reading on this day especially.

You and your current way of seeing the world under 'flags' and as colours of skin and imported cultural preferences (read: so called 'tolerance' of other cultures in australia) is about as useful as returning to the stinking rotten convict past of our country.You think they enjoyed it? Don't fool yourself that it was for the future of AU, this borrowed land, it was just about survival as it always is, even for the murri people - your concept of 'aussie pride' has been fed to you by media, schooling and our white elders for only about thirty-five years. This utlra right flag waving is an even more recent phenomena, despite the dark days of the embarrassment of the White Australia policy of the 1950's. If I had a time machine and some black face, I might loan it you, so you could experience it yourself first hand.

'National pride' is an idiotic concept in my opionion, that the entire world should do away with it as soon as possible.

Intellectual number few in this thread so far! A little late, but better late than never!

They won't believe it when a non-white non-Australian tells them, maybe they will believe it when one of their own tells them bluntly.

The news article says that people who fly the flags on their car are more likely to be racists.

Not that people that have flags on their cars are being racist.

Drama Llama.

Just another day in the whole scheme of things. Just another day for people to sweep the real issues under the carpet and get smashed and set themselves up for a potential 4 day weekend (whether they work or not).

The paddy wagons and the police cells will be getting maximum use 2day!

Happy Universe Day!

Actully i think it's a fair call calling it 'Invasion Day'
I mean lets face it thats pretty much what is celebrated.

As for the the raucous Fervour surrounding Australia Day, i really think that such an overt display is kinda fake.

I'm proud to be Australian but i don't feel the need to scream and shout and cover everything in the flag.

It's Australia day soon. Some like to drape themselves in the flag or plaster it everywhere. It is just something we do here. It's called "Aussie Pride"! Some even like to put the "Southern Cross" stickers on their car. But yet some moron sociologist and anthropologist named Professor Farida Fozdar (obviously racist against the bulk of Australians and has the IQ of a house brick) tells us it is racist to be proud of our country around late January (our Summer time).

I know Americans feel this hurt when certain groups complain about the "USA USA USA" chants. Which I personally don't find offensive or aggressive in any capacity. Just people showing patriotic pride.

So to these academics and the aboriginals that call it "Invasion Day" I give yo the famous Aussie saying "Go & Get stuffed!" It's our day let us enjoy it! "Aussie Pride". Farida you know where you can jam your fake, forged and grossly wrong statistics! You disgrace!

www.couriermail.com.au...



"You had flag flyers who were expressing non-racist views, so I wouldn't like people to go away from hearing about this research thinking, 'oh well all people who have flags on their cars are racist'. That's certainly not the finding," she said.



But Professor Fozdar says according to her research it is simplistic to believe all of those with flags on their cars or trucks hold racist attitudes


What's that term we all love to use around here...

Deny what?

No there isn't. Humans have the same basic DNA. We're all 99% like one another.

Maybe you have some sort of distorted perception that people the live in the jungle are less human than you, even though they're not. That's opinion, not rooted in fact at all. Fact is we all have the same DNA minus tiny, seriously tiny, differences.

I ain't too find of the 4th of July. The British were fairly decent to my people and the Colonists held a long grudge against us for it. Still do I reckon. But it is the day the whites celebrate and I ain't too keen on them not celebrating it. I would rather they allow us to elect our own people to head the BIA instead of getting a white to control our money and lands. They will never do it, but I still wish they would.

However, when a group of people make child molesting a national pass time and they huff gasoline so bad they had to change the formula to prevent it. Then you can't even begin to call them equals. They're not by any means. Their skulls don't even look human compared to a white. As such, their opinion matter precisely nothing.

I'm a first generation Australian from an Italian background and I am proud as punch of this fantastic country. My grandfather had to leave Italy after World War 2 as he could not feed his family. He came to Australia and never looked back. This country offered him work, safety and freedom. He came here at the age of 44 and started again and paid a house off and led a comfortable life here. Although his English was bad he learnt as much as he could he absolutely loved AFL footy and Carlton was His team. So I'm Aussie and I love this Country. I've been to Italy for a visit and that is not my home, Australia is my home. No Country is perfect but this is a fantastic place to live. I'm thankful that Britain came here and created a stable Government here and have allowed so many Immigrants to come over too. I am sorry to the Aboriginals that had there land taken and I am respectful of there History as they are the rightful decsendants of this Land. I hope that over time more can be done to help and heal the wounds that were created. I also believe that as my Grandfather was able to come we should continue to encourage Immigration. I have had the fortune to work with many new Immigrants to this Country (Chinese, Egyptians, Iranians, Iraqis, Indians, Sri Lankins) the list goes on. I can honestly say that these different cultures enrich Australia further and from what I can tell most of these people are grateful that they have come here and that they love our Country too. So yeah I will definitely be flying the flag this Australia day.

You are wrong, until recently it was thought Europeans and Asians were descendents from Africa. However, DNA evidence has proven there is a 2-4% difference between Euros/Asians to Africans. Meaning that there is a missing link from where we originated from. In case you didn't know, almost all life on Earth share 99% of the same DNA, so even a 0.5 difference is ENORMOUS.

"National pride is ridiculous in my opinion and should be done away with"

You say that only because YOU have nothing to be proud of in your country. You look at our country with envy and how you wish you could be here, but no stay where you are. Its better for the both of us.
