Please be mindful of the fact that people of all national origins and religions use these forums. Blatant generalisations such as your comments below are not appropriate.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists appear to be muslims.

Incedently I didnt cry for the drug smuggler, he got what he deserved.

As the Lady said on 7 news tonight (cant remember her name) "Muslims are welcome to our home but if they cant abide by our rules then they should go back to where they come from"

What Howard means is that racism is not an underlying principle of Australian culture.

Yes, it's definitely there; but it's an aberration, not an essential element of the Autralian psyche.
A country that had a whites only policy, Aboriginal hunts, Aboriginal slave labour and only gave Aborigines the vote in the sixties would to me have racism as an underlying part of its culture.

That is a bit of generalising isn't it?

The whole world is racist we need to just accept it and get on with our lives.
Its natural to want to look after your own.
How far back in time do you want to go? The slave traders?
The world is still a better place now despite terrorism etc.

Shame on you
The people who riot in the street as you put it are normal, everyday Aussies who are fed up and decided to make a stand.

Shame on you more like

Reduced to personal insults now are we?

Why sign off with TC (not muslim)? Is being a muslim something to be ashamed of then?

If that is true then God help us because they were a drunken, horrible mob who weren't just attacking those who looked lebanese but anyone who looked foreign. I'm glad I wasn't there! It would not have mattered if I was a well behaved law abiding citizen, they probably would have abused me and chased me because they were so drunk. If that is an example of an everyday ordinary Aussie then I will pack up and go home. Thankfully I've been here for 8 years and know that the ordinary Aussie isn't like that.

What utter rubbish. The mob at Cronulla were white trash racist bogans of the lowest order who like "bash the wogs and lebs".
Shame on you for tarring Australians with that brush.

When those very people who were slaves are still alive and unpaid then there is still an injustice. You have to go back a lot longer than 40 years for sands of time to heal.
