I'm sure there was a thread on here about this but cant find it. ANyways alot of my friends are posting clips of it from youtube so i watched the whole thing.
was pretty disgusted by some peoples attitude ..although the 4 indians were taken to the extreme settings..
my grandad was an extreme racist...to the point that he would cross the road if he saw a ''coloured'' person walking his way ...
hubby is as well but not openly ..
anyhow just thoguht if you watched the show how did it make you feel? what did you think?

I watched all but missed the last episode, it made me feel embarrassed to be Australian to be honest
I live in between Lakemba and Cronulla so have definitely experienced how rife racisim is in this city

I hate it when people are so nice to someones face (of a different background) and than behind their back are really nasty!

I found it quite distressing. I know they were deliberately seeking out the racist elements, but the fact is there are a lot of people who do hold the views displayed on the show and that's disturbing.
In the Cronulla riots episode I just wanted to go up and give them a hug and reassure them that we aren't all like that. It was horrible to watch their innocence and faith in this country be destroyed.

I cried in the Cronulla riots part, the protest at the detention centre and in the one where they were being driven around in the anti-Muslim car.
BUT I did learn something, as a non-drinking immigrant I had no idea about pub etiquette or B&S balls.

It makes me embarrassed to be Australian but proud not to be a racist one. I think it is an important show and hope people take notice. Racism is a massive problem in Australia.
I love the young Indian guy, forget his name but he's cool.
