Australia has no room for racism

The post-1788 anti-immigration sentiments, which gave birth to the White Australia Policy are now resurrected through populist right-wing parties who are seeking to gain votes by appealing to racist sentiments.

Racist nationalistic policies can only be successful in a climate were fear is brandished and fostered.

As a consequence, white privilege is entrenched at the expense of the migrants, and a specific scapegoat is targeted. Muslims are currently public enemy number one.

This is something which has happened throughout history, and sadly, the dire social and economic ramifications of such policies are never considered.

Australia has no room for racism.
