    Is that a solution?
    Too far?
    Or maybe we will we just continue to consume ourselves from the inside out.
    Because that's all name calling achieves.

    What's really happening to bring about change and peace between everyone?

    I have the sneaking suspicion not a lot, and even less faith that that's actually what people want.


    And there was a threat there.
    Okay, you are determined to make this a personal issue so I will reduce it to just that.

    Say a group of people were harassing you and your family constantly, abusing you, treating you as sub human.
    How long would you ask them nicely to stop before you stop asking nicely? Or would you forever ask nicely, no matter what they do to you/your family?

    Come on, they knew patriotic groups would be livid.

    To me, if they get the poster back up, great. But the harm has been done because they spoke on behalf of the whole country when it's quite obvious the whole country does not feel that way. They were stupid to be so ignorant and those poor girls must be feeling it the worst of all.

    Comedy article. But it gets the point across.

    Thank you, that's clearer for me.
    I would bring it to the attention of my local police station, make a complaint and start a paper trail in case the situation escalates, then I've got some back up.

    Or are you going to tell me that's just a white privilege?
    That no one else can do that?

    That is exactly it.
    You don't have the luxury of police. 9/10 you will be hauled away instead, occasionally to die under "mysterious and completely explainable" circumstances.
    You then try to go to the local council, I take it?
    Unfortunately that's a no go.
    State government? Mmm. No. no dice.
    Fed government? OH, they look like they're helping. WOO!
    But then a loud group of people object to helping you because it would somehow take away their freedoms. So the help is taken away.

    The ability to make a complaint to police and have confidence you'll be listened to and taken seriously is white privilege alright. I can assure you that Aboriginal people do not feel the same way about reporting things to police given the shameful historical, and often present, treatment of Aboriginal people by the police and justice system.

    I'll get to that but the "swamped by Asians"bit stood out to me and that's because I was watching the news here,. many yrs ago now, and it was a piece presented by Leila Mckinnon about the Irish in Bondi.

    Her use of words were awful racist too.
    On the national news, something like 'running rampant' or something to that effect.
    Like we were vermon.

    I'll always hold it against her.
