Rate this:
Cultural diversity is central to Australia's national identity, however many Australians regularly experience racism. Racism exists in many forms, including offensive jokes and comments; name-calling and verbal abuse; harassment and intimidation; and media commentary which encourages hostility towards certain groups of people. Racist attitudes are common in the form of unconscious bias, intolerance and prejudice; at its worst, racial discrimination manifests in acts of violence and abuse. What is the extent of racism, and what are its causes and impacts? How does racism exclude certain groups of people from full and fair participation in our society? This book explains people's rights under racial discrimination and hatred laws, and explores ways in which we can all address racist attitudes and behaviours together as one people.
