In other news water is wet. You'd have to be real clueless to not have figured out that Australia has huge race issues.

This. Australia would be one of my favourite countries if it weren't for the rampant xenophobia and general podunkiness.

Im brown and I love Australia - well its metropolitan cities anyway. We've got 4 of the top 10 liveable cities in the world and when you live in say Melbourne, racism seems so far away. Its still going to take a while for that to percolate through to the suburbs and rural Australia but the racists, homophobes and bigots in general are getting pushed further and further into the fringe.

The one thing I see is that drugs and alcohols and are becoming huge issues in Australia. : /

Most of the people labelled as racists were under drugs or drunks or being "bogans" the Australian equivalent of the British "Chavs" .

That would be like saying that every UK "Chavs" = every British citizens

Or that every American bigots = Every Americans citizens .

Or that every French Beaufs/Racailles = Every French citizens .

Etc etc .

And almost each time every other Australians denizens stepped in to defend the victim and are very vocal and critical about the whole issue .

That's reassuring actually .If no one lifted a finger or actively helped now i would have agreed with you .

Also no matter of disproportionate and hostile the Australian reaction was ,the French tourists girls should have know better than singing aloud in a public transportation .

Civic mild mannered behavior should be your norm no matter if you're at home our on a foreign trip .

Basically this. As a Brit I can verify that our country is full of the same kind of degenerate scum seen in those reports. They might not be so blatant about it in public, but they're there.

Canada has nowhere the racism that America, Australia or parts of Europe have.

Another reason that Stephen Harper is superior to Obama.
