Aussies, What are your experiences about Racism in your country?
I’ve heard a lot of stories that in the recent past Australians have been attacking International Students (mainly Indian).
Now most of it is in Melbourne from what i’ve read and saw on TV but is it centered around specific suburbs? Or just in the City perhaps?
Also, if you have different colored skin/Of a different race than White, have you experienced racism at school/work and do you feel that racism is easily noticeable there? Be it preconceived notions, selection of friends, favoritism at work.
An added note is that I’ve lived there but i was really young and have never experienced Racism personally probably because i was only around children my age and I don’t think we gave a Sh-t about the color of someone’s skin at that age. My sister however, was in high school and experienced it a lot.
My family’s now planning to move back there, and we’re considering everything.
Hope you guys got something to say :] And I guess this has turned out to be a bit lengthy and both a discussion AND problem. Sorry…? :X
