There has been a much publicised push on the Gold Coast in Australia to establish yet one more China Town in Australia, naturally situated at Southport on the Gold Coast.

Why?

According to the Chinese lobbyists its to enable Chinese people to live with other Chinese people.

They are planning a Chinese school, wait for it yes for Chinese children to mix with Chinese Children.

Are Australian people offensive to the Chinese?...living in Australia

Are Australian Children offensive to the Chinese living in Australia?

If not why the push for a Chinatown?

If one is a reasonably deep thinker and hoinest, not a psuedo Pc drone but a patriot, then answers need to be found?

I have to ask a question too. What is with the 'African towns' popping up? There are numerous suburbs now where African people live, like an all blacj community. I am not saying it is bad, but it is when they all bring their habits from overseas, such as blatant disrespect towards other citizens.

I remember the Ding suburbs and the Pohm suburbs from when I was a kid, meh, who cares they are just people.
Every nationality has integrated over time.
If you were to complain about the number of immigrants as opposed to their nationality or where they live I may care.

Ummmm

It isn't for Chinese people to live at all it's a retail precinct - You know those quaint little places you go to shop in that have chinese food, chinese curiosities etc - You would have seen them in movies and such - It's just an area/place to shop at a number of chinese outlets/shops - I like Chinese food, I like Chinese designs and clothes, so it's nice to buy, hopefully, original items - They don't want to "live" away from 'us'- it's a shopping experience - And there's a chinese school in Brisbane, it's been there for over 20yrs - Plenty of 'white/caucasion/european' kids went there along with the little chinese kids - It was not 'inclusive' to chinese kids, and I doubt the one on the gold coast if it gets going will be any different

This is an exciting new themed retail precinct planned for Southport on the Gold Coast. The project has been the long term vision of Gold Coast businessman Tat Yin (Ted) Fong who has worked tirelessly for over 20 years to make this dream a reality. In the past year, Chinatown Gold Coast has moved closer to fruition thanks to the dedicated work of Dale Anderson, Southport TAB and many other local businesses and individuals who see the value such a precinct can have for the revitalisation of Southport and the Gold Coast at large. The project is planned to open in 2014 in line with the new light rail and other significant infrastructure projects currently underway. Chinatown Gold Coast will benefit all residents and visitors to the Gold Coast and we trust you will continue to support its development.

Australian people aren't offensive to the Chinese, but the Chinese are extremely offensive to white Australians.

If you're anything like the majority of urban white Australians, you're actually a closet white supremacist racist, who doesn't want people of any other ethnicity living in "your," areas; or at the very least, if any immigrants do, they have to get rid of their language, their religion, and become carbon copies of you as much as they possibly can, because obviously becoming a football worshipping, feedlot beef pie guzzling, marijuana and alcohol abusing, profane, violent bogan is a million times superior to anything they could possibly have...right?

Come out of the closet. It'll feel a lot better. We're all here for you; we'll help you get through the realisation.

I think anyone coming here wanting to live free like us, want to be employed like us want to live in houses we build should defianetly attempt to learn our language..
Im not having a racist anglo bogan rant, i do realise there are alot of people coming here more than willing to learn english, get jobs an generally do good things here..But there are also alot that do not care to learn anything about the country they wish to migrate to..
I ask you to imagine yourself an your family moving to say..china or a middle eastern country an while there totally isolated yourselves, set up mini marts an living close to other australians all huddled together speaking english all the time even around the people from that country..
Imagine you did not try to 'blend in' or make an effort to fit in even a little bit.

What would happen? Youde probally be frowned upon, ignored, maybie even harrassed.
My point if we wouldnt be alloud to set up little 'ozzy town' in there country why should they be allowed.

I hold no ill will towards the Chinese, in fact I love a lot of Chinese culture (and women!). But if they want to immigrate, then they should go to Australian schools, learn Australian and BE Australian. It doesn't mean they can't have China towns, in fact I encourage it. But that shouldn't be ALL they have, which is what it seems like they're trying to do.

I'll assist you petrus4 in this exorcism...ha ha...

Funny...the Chinese who worked alongside 1st & 2nd gen. British Empire BOAT ARRIVALS...in the goldfields during the gold rush...

Europeans are still emigrating here...so are the Chinese...after 180-200 years...
The 5th & 6th gen. Brits. have elevated themselves to Summernats and Deperate & Dateless balls...or, Bundy&coke, and Velour&milk...Global Multinational super/hypermarts (which mainly cater for the white anglo-saxon propensity to rush headlong into stroke-city, or diabetes-town)...

Jingoistic trash, OP...
A poor attempt at racial superiority, veiled concern for a 'culture' which can only be described in name alone...Australian?...means...what?

Do You know what 'China Town' is?
You can eat the best 'Mongolian Lamb' 'Peking Duck' 'Wantan soup' 'Deep fried icecream' or buy the ingredients to make your own chinese food - Buy the best of chinese knick knacks.
And what self respecting anybody would seriously want to go to 'ozzy town' ? and eat what??? What would you serve? Meat pies, bangers n mash fish and chips? Get a grip, they aren't trying to isolate themselves from 'us' wonderfully aussie aussies oi oi oi - why, we just have the most profound respect for history and the cultures that came before us, don't we

Please correct me if you are joking here?

Australasia is a name for the "continent" i.e Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand and handful of Islands scattered nearby in the Pacific and New Guinea that originates from the late 1700's and is derived from the Latin meaning South of Asia

It is not a new label and certainly doesn't have anything to do with the amount of immigrants that have graced the shore of Australia.

Back on Topic

I lived in Sydney about 17 years ago and even then the chinese population was huge, the china town in Sydney was and still is one of the most vibrant places in the city.

People in a foreign country stick together, it's no differrent from having western compounds in Dubai or English speaking complexes in Spain / France wherever.

There is no restriction on any non chinese entering the china towns in fact as a rule visitors are encouraged, as well they should be, as they oost economy and it is a great place to take in other cultures on your own doorstep.

Europeans got there secondly, after the 'bush people' the Chinese are rather late in arriving, don't you think?

Agreed. I was a patriotic Australian back in the 1980s. I stopped being one, at about the same time that the OP became the definition of it.

As for what "Australian culture," means, it is more or less exactly what I have described. A Neanderthal, knuckle dragging, proletarian spiritual disease.

its sad that this day and age people are still classed by skin colour/race/religion

There can be hope only for a society which acts as one big family, not as many separate ones

On one hand maybe that is true, but on the other alot of people are starting to wonder why the onus of "multiculturalism" seems to only fall upon the white people. White people can't go and swamp africa and asia in such a matter, but white countries are expected to mix culturally and genetically. In every predominantly white country the census shows a bleak outlook for whites in the very near future, whilst every other racial makeup will be vigorous.

Not saying this is particularly bad, but pretty damn suspicious if you ask me.
