A report has been announced, not released, just announced, but the press is reporting on it and commenting regardless, sight unseen. Especially SBS.
Apparently a survey has determined that 10% of Australians are racist. Now, to me, that 90% are not is the big news. That must make us the most tolerant people in the known universe, but that isn’t the way it’s being spun.
However, consider this –
Prof Dunn said people also revealed who they singled out the most.
“The most often-mentioned groups were Muslims or people from the Middle East.”
Muslims? That old canard again. Never yet has anyone been able to describe for me the racial characteristics of a Muslim. This is to claim that there are people who have a genetic predisposition to worship morally crippled, mass murdering, kiddie fiddling warlords. I guess pointing out, yet again, that Islam is a belief system and has no bearing on race is not just a waste of time, but will get me smeared with that dishonest term – islamophobic.
Well, the report is being released on Friday, let’s see how misleading it is then.
