Telling me to f off does nothing for your intelligence, you sound like you just came from Cronulla.
I hear you but there are better ways to go about it. Your points become invalid because you sound like a bigot.
Those aren't even views. Or opinions.I am a BIGOT for being WHITE
I am a BIGOT for being PROTESTANT
I am an even bigger BIGOT for being PRESBYTERIAN
Those are views. Depending on the way you express those views you may or may not be a bigot.I am a BIGOT for opposing the BOAT PEOPLE
I am a BIGOT for having an opinion on who comes into the COUNTRY
Have a sense of humor or something? You'd never survive as a Russian. Weird stereotype though.I am a called a STINGY BASTARD for being Scottish and supposed to laugh
How silly is your national dress?I am forced to endure advertising campaigns making fun of my national dress and I am supposed to laugh
I think you need to relax a little.
You realize that you just proved his point. Maybe you should reel your neck in with the bigot comments kid. Being against unchecked immigration and illegal aliens in general does not make someone a bigot but using that term liberally is the biggest name calling conversation ending tool that small thinkers tend to use in these circumstances. One success story does not mean a repeat will be as successful especially as the labor demands and population losses that post-war period are drastically different today.
I do have a sense of humour but why is the same not funny if I call someone a Jew - that becomes bigoted!
It's a kilt and according to a recent advert it was never welcomed onto the Australian workplace - if you see the ad for Four and Twenty Pies it is actually quite funny - but then again if it was a muslim wearing a Burqa walking into things - that would be bigoted!
Do you see what I am trying to say? I am all for everything happening that happens but it has to go both ways.
Not I am a bigot because I don't come from a minority!
Toddy, being white don't make you Australian. That one white kid could be the only first generation immigrant at the school.
Off topic, but anyways.
Anyone here watching the debate? (I just tuned in, only saw the end of Gillard's speel).
Besides Strykes there is a difference - Australia was colonised (conquered to be more practical) by Britain. Exactly the same as England was conquered by the Normans way back in 1066. What is happeneing now is not a conquering but a slow breeding out process by the ethnic groups who are arriving and having numerous children (no one can deny a much higher number than the traditional Australian families have) and as a result in 50 years the Australian's who have a proud history, albeit a short one, will be very much in the minority.
Perhaps they stay within their own communities because of all the grumpy old scots about. But yes well done for supposedly integrating into a white majority English speaking country must have been a huge change from Scotland.
When I arrived via 5 years in NZ in 1991, yes you are correct it was easy to integrate within a white majority English speaking country. Where I live now on the outskirts of Sydney, no I am not in the majority as that has quickly been overtaken by Indian and Chinese ethnicities. It's like Where's Wally just trying to pick out someone who is not from one of these ethnic groups. Good thing these types hang around where the perceived money is, it means that once I have had enough I will just move to the country
What's so bad about being surrounded by Indians and Chinese though? From my observations most Asians in Australia have jobs, obey the law, make an effort to speak English and are generally good people. I'd rather live in a suburb with them than in a suburb with unemployed dole-bludging bogans with Southern Cross tattoos, 6 kids, a clapped out Commodore ute and a dog.
