Mandy’s rave on racism was absolutely spot on. Claims that a person is not a racist accompanied by the defence of ‘it was an accident’ or ‘it was said in private’ are totally invalid. If someone lets down their inhibitions and makes a racist statement, then their true attitude is revealed.
Mandy’s point that Australian culture fosters racist attitudes rings true. Thank you Mandy for your clear articulation of the issues and plea for an end to racist attitudes and an end to excuses.
