Everyone is racist to some degree in someone's eyes.

I've been accused of being racist to Filipino's because of some of my thinking, but I am happily married to one, and she thinks the same of some Filipino's as I do. But it isn't rascist, as it relates to an attitude that some have, and I think the same of my own nationality if they have the same attitude, and some do.

Many complain of racism in employment when the truth is more related to other reasons, such as language ability.

Getting a job for myself, when I first arrived, was not easy. I was new, I spoke diffferently, and didn't have the confidence of a local. But I couldn't claim racism. Most employers, in most countries, will employ someone they can relate to more than someone with differences. These differences may affect the business, and need to be considered.

There is discrimination, but not always down to racism. However, there are also some pure racists in all countries. People who believe all of one nationality or race are the same.

Not everyone is racist in Australia, as a matter of fact, it depends on the individual to individual. However, considering the lot, we wouldn't say that Racism is on the higher side.

Racism exists everywhere but I've definitely dealt with it more since relocating to Australia.

Interesting thread.
Yes there are racists in Australia some overtly others masquerading as concerned citizens just looking after our jobs - many in politics!!
But there are also homophobes, misogynists (women haters) but equally there are men haters because they have been beaten or raped - utter bastard men - but none of these labels apply to me - of course!
The only generalisation that really matters is some people hate some other people because they are different and don't understand or want to know why.
Essentially it is that old human problem of tribalism - us versus them.
"Fear of the other"
But Australians in the main "do unto others as you would be done by yourself"
Like people and try to join the wonderful Nation we have and you will be welcomed.

Treat others with suspicion and you will be suspect.
Use harsh words and you will shouted down.
Do not even think about using violence to enforce your views.
That is definitely not the Australian way!

But finally be aware that some of us are too stupid to understand the words I have just written - so be careful!

I guess everyone has their own point of view but if you ask me then Australia is a beautiful country and I guess you should visit there.

As it is the case everywhere, some racist people here and there... That was the same when I lived in Thailand, when I lived in China, .... "same same" everywhere

But overall, I wouldn't say that Aussies are racist, no worries

I guess you should visit there once because everyone has their own thinking so it would be better if you take your own experience after that you can judge them by your own.

There are so many Asians living in Australia. Australia have adapted Asian immigrants. Now, the Australians are more concern with the middle eastern immigrants because of the war going on at overseas and of course, the IS.
To be honest, every country have racist people and everybody are different.
You will be surprise how many Asians are living in Sydney and Melbourne that can make you feel at home.
