LOL good lord. Have you actually read the comments? Most of the readers are saying the article is full of crap. Racism occurs EVERYWHERE in every country.

Here's one about the UK

Racism in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
The BBC has reported that the latest crime statistics appear to support Phillips' concerns. They show that race-hate crimes increased by almost 600 per cent in London in the month after the July 7 bomb attacks, with 269 more offences allegedly "motivated by religious hatred" reported to the Metropolitan Police, compared to the same period last year.
Racist bullying: Far-right agenda on immigration ‘being taken into classrooms’ - Education News - Education - The Independent

Quote:
More than 1,400 children and young people contacted ChildLine for counselling about racist bullying in 2013, up 69 per cent on the previous 12 months. Islamophobia is a particular issue in schools, according to the charity, with young Muslims reporting that they are being called “terrorists” and “bombers” by classmates.

Here's one about France

Egalité? Non: Is racism on rise in France? - CNN.com

Quote:
"Racist attacks are on the rise in France," says N'Diaye."And racist slurs that used to be absolutely uncommon are becoming more and more common, if not more accepted, in growing parts of French society. So there is a lot to worry about when looking at the situation."
Here's one about Germany

Germany grapples with day-to-day racism | Germany | DW.DE | 02.09.2013

Quote:
Racism not only affects black people in Germany, of which there are many fewer than in the US. Anti-Semitism is also a form of racism, as well as antiziganism directed against the Roma. "There are many parallels to other groups that are discriminated against in this country, the racist experiences are similar," said Della.
Again, racism exists everywhere. Australia has racism as well but it's not a big issue at all. Myself as a Vietnamese person, I can't even remember the last time or any time at all where someone has told me to "go back home" or "fuck off we're full". It simply isn't a thing to worry about. Life is good here and it's fair.

Basically, your argument is void.

Sorry for everyone who felt offended that wasn't my intention, my only intention was to know more about myths and realities about being "non-white" in australia and how it is perceived in general everyday life

From your opening post, I sense so much fear in you. "I fear this." "I fear this" "I fear". Just ease up and relax a little. Don't believe everything you read online. They are sensationalized to just get people to read about it. Fact is, people here are very laid back, casual, fair and friendly (well most I've seen anyway).

Perhaps maybe you should get a tourist visa here first or something so you can see for yourself if you like it or not. And then you can decide if you want to move here. I still think you have too much doubts from all the crap you've read

Full of grammatical errors but I still understood what you're trying to say. Not really a big issue :P

Mark Twain also once said: “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”

Don't worry, guys, I saw what NSW posted here and on another thread and he's gone. We don't need drama-stirrers here.
