Australia doesn't have the racist past / present of the usa.


uh..yeah ..I think your Aborigonees might disagree with you on that

anyhoo...


I think the US is just more PC ("politically correct")now days, or wanting to seem that way..culturally... than maybe Australia...generally. This all has more to do with that.

but still..on this...

“I am an Indian, and five of the six of us are from multicultural backgrounds and to be called a racist ... I don’t think I have ever been called that ever in my life before,” he said.

“Anyone who knows us as a group, we are intelligent people, we are all from different racial backgrounds so I am really truly surprised,” Deva said.



anyone can be a racist or a bigot or a sexist..we all are to some extant, I'm sure

also..that Austalian skit..it was racist..but it was also pretty funny...but it WAS really, very racist

but is was funny.

And you are right..the US has done plenty of racist joking past and presently

an example from my own life...

just last year my family went to UniversaL Studios, Hollywood.

We were in line for The Simpsons ride (a fun ride, FYI).

so anyway, we are in line, right behind an Asian couple, obviously vacationing in the US.

The line gets long so they show Simpsons videos on tv screens throughout the line to entertain the crowd as they wait.

Suddenly, a Simpsons video comes on with Homer acting Asian and putting on a bad Japanese accent, as a joke.

It was SO uncomfortable.

I couldn't help but think this couple was here visting the States and now they have ths embarrasing memory to remember their trip with...grreat.

A-lot of Asians vist Universal Sutdios, Hollywood because california is on the Pacicif side of the States.
I can't believe Universal was running this video there.
If I was more of an activist type i probably would have complained to the management or something.

I'd like to see the apology withdrawn,and they should apologize to the australian people ..

The thing that keeps racism alive is idiots like HCJ ...racism to some people is surely a mental illness that they cannot cope with..,those types need to seek counseling in private and stop spreading the disease ..Severe racism is different

what do you mean what was false ? the racism issue :!:
Racism i would expect is a slurr,violence in said words and actions,the real issue and core of crossing the lines..Joking behaviour is no where near it..The lines are blurry enough to not notice a clear difference ..

America has always become confused differentiating between issues..
For one action and violence...I recall Kojak the tv series which was an action was classified at one stage as being one of the most violent shows around..People calling for a ban...Christ...
You need to work on your differentiation clue/issues..

So as long as there isn't any slurs or acts of violence like lynching it's not racist?
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.
