i think the general racism in australia is very low, but the higher racism is found in low socio-economic areas. I am caucasian australian.

Seriously, it would be better for yourself. With such a mindset, you won't enjoy yourself.
I can't count how many times I heard that "Australians are all racists", before moving there. Most saying that were Arabs and Asians. Every time I heard that, I thought that was silly.
And indeed, I never felt any Australian I have met was racist. It may be because English is not my first language that I don't always understand all subtleties, but anyway, it's something you perceive if the guy is making fun of you, and I have never experienced that.
Maybe I have been lucky so far, I don't know.
The big problem Australians have is that they use too much sarcastic humour, a lot more than the rest of the world. I am Australian and been living in Italy for 4 years and you can't use much sarcasm here because it isn't understood and can get you into trouble. And Australians do insult each other and an Italian gave me a book "the xenophobs guide to Australia" where it advises foreign visitors to Australia that when people start insulting you it means they like you (it is one of the books using humour to tell the truth).My Italian girlfriend immediately could relate to it as she lived in Australia for a year.

However, eventhough there is more racism in Australia than Italy, imo, there is much more cultural intergration in Australia. I can not remember going to a workplace or party and seeing any one else but Italians, me being the only foreigner. It would be suprising for me to go anywhere in Australia and not hear at least a couple of accents or foreign faces. There are plenty of other races in Italy like asian, arab, africans etc but they all keep to themselves in the community. You may see some Swiss and Rumanians at work. So although they don't seem to have any hatred of foreigners they pretty much ignore them too.
Don't get me wrong, Italians are very friendly but it is just my limited observation.

It's sad that in this day and age that we STILL need to have conversations like this. I even know a couple of people who really lovely and nice, and yet there is something in them which make them say something stupid every now and then. Obviously they don't attack people, but that kind of mentality of disliking someone because of where they are from is just crazy! Luckily i've never heard of anything bad happening to any of my friends.

20 years ago as a student in Sydney, I do feel the awkward stares and snares occasionally. 10 years ago as a student in perth, things were a lot better as the racial profile became more 'developed'. Few months ago in Tazzie for a holiday, felt completely at ease. Not sure if perception of racism has got to do with age...

Maybe he means in frank terms, where the bogans live, on welfare, cause they are too stupid to do anything g else and in my eyes stupidity and racism seem to go hand in hand.

Plenty of reverse racism, if you want to call it that, actually comes from the very nationalities that complain about it.....

I can suggest a few and the reasons but it's not in anyone's interest to do so...

I agree with you reachelvis!
If we for one second learn to respect others and kerb the self-entitlement attitude, racism wouldn't be developed.

:- ) Hi Ausindo... it is the attitude n ego, the one which is killing the humanity approach...if everyone understand the need of respect there won't be any such incident in first place... but to change this attitude one has to change from inside... thats why I factor is very important yes i can change... if one can change his behavior n thinking towards other then it would be a better for everyone... it is not possible to change everyone or ask everyone to change but it should come from inside...

Tks...:- )
