Race Commissioner: Australia is going backwards on racism

Postby Squire » 02 Oct 2018, 13:19

Australia is evolving into the quintessential racist society in a land where the one-eyed man is king.

One very interesting argument from the article below is that the children of immigrants are better at English than Australian born children. That is very obvious in my experience becaue children follow their parents in their language learning except for immigrants who have nothing to learn from their parents in English language so they concentrate more on learning the language instead of speaking like their parents.

And; "African migrants more likely to go to uni than non-migrants".

For that matter, the English are not very proficient in their own language, except for those phrases of foul invective which they are very proficient in.

Only fat, sweaty, incoherent, closet poms need apply for Prime-Ministership.

Australia's anus is pointed in the direction of evolution while the head trails behind. Sprint cyclist rides facing the rear of his bicycle.

Race Commissioner: Australia is going backwards on racism

"Right now, it feels like there has never been a more exciting time to be a dog-whistling politician or race-baiting commentator in Australia."

That's Dr Tim Soutphommasane in his final speech as Race Discrimination Commissioner - delivered on Monday night in Western Sydney. After five years of enduring almost constant attack and criticism, the Commissioner steps down in less than two weeks.

He may be the last with his title. Conservative commentators have repeatedly called for the position to be left vacant after his departure, and the Federal Government is looking at renaming and redefining the role so it "cannot be divisive or contribute to division".

When we talk about racism, it's often described as something that recedes a little each year, as society moves towards a more welcoming and progressive ideal.

But in his speech on Monday, the Commissioner said race politics is back - and it's begun to get much worse just as he's preparing to leave office.

'We have to make sure we don't have double standards'
Speaking with Hack today, Dr Soutphommasane said the current debate on crime, multiculturalism and immigration was "creating more racial division than social unity".

"We've seen a particular escalation of debate in recent months - if you look at the panic and hysteria around African gangs in Melbourne, if you look at at the warnings of Australian multiculturalism in crisis from senior government ministers in recent months," he said.

"Just in the last few weeks you've had former prime minister Tony Abbott question whether we should continue to have a non-discriminatory immigration policy."

Last month, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull claimed Melbournians were too scared of Sudanese gangs to eat out at night, and a couple weeks later he floated the idea of a "values" test to fend off "ethnic segregation" and the growth of ethnic ghettos.

African migrants more likely to go to uni than non-migrants
And children from immigrant families are likely to be better at English than their classmates.

Dr Soutphommasane says these fears are nonsense.

"The statistics also show Australian-born and New Zealand-born offenders are also over-represented in Victorian crime statistics."

"But there's only one particular group at the moment being singled out: Sudanese Australians."

"We have to make sure we don't have double standards."

The danger of unfairly singling out any particular community, he said, was that past experience showed it could create more problems than it could solve.

"I hope it doesn't get any worse," he said.

"There's a real responsibility for all Australians who care about this country to think about speaking up and calling out racism when it occurs."

"Racism when it does happen is an assault on our fellow members of society and is an assault on our values and we reject it because we believe in the idea of equality."

Reverse psychology never works unless you have a working brain, all your comments are very racist against real Aussies, so just take your medication and lie down. When you produce something that makes logical sense, others may take note. Just running down the country you are in because our approach doesn't suit you, is rather pathetic and to me, it's imports and their offspring who try to disrupt our society with their deranged claims.

Real Aussies are Aboriginals. Most of the rest are closet poms and the progeny of genocidal maniacs.

Are you a descendant of British Aboriginals? Out with it man.

Not a closet Pom. 100% made in Holland.
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!

My heritage is indigenous and European, which includes danish, scot and some, pommie. Grew upon an indigenous community until taken away and locked into a religious home. Real Aussies in this day and age, are those who try to live in harmony with the land, not just indigenous. Many indigenous are addicted to European junk lifestyles and don't represent the culture properly, that's because the education they receive is wrong and of now real benefit to their understanding of what they are and how they can represent that properly and progress the culture and provide and example to the benefit of the country
