Winant describes the new idea of racial hegemony as one that “operates in societies and institutions that explicitly condemn prejudice and discrimination” (128). How do racial mobility and racial inequality relate? Racial mobility is the ability to move up and down the racial scale, and racial inequality is the lack of equal treatments between groups. Racial mobility is not racism, but it can bring on racial inequality. Nikki S. Lee’s photograph portraying the Asian female among the black community furthermore supports Winant’s claim.
Australia, it is time for a new flag. We, as the people of Australia, need to change the flag of this beautiful nation, as it only represents the doctrines and aspects set by the British. Not only does the flag show that we are still apart of the British, but marginalises the many people of this land. Australia now being a fully self-governed country is blooming with multiculturalism and individualism, which is not shown on the flag. Why do we need a new flag?
Rather than view Australian history as a closed system, they attempt to explore how experiences in other democracies shaped the decision to have compulsory voting in Australia. The writers’ views are that compulsory voting was adopted to protect an apathetic majority from outspoken minorities. The article would be a useful source in the writing of a paper on compulsory voting because it examines how experiences in other nations affected Australians’ decisions to make voting compulsory. The article also further explores the debates in the nineteenth century Australian colonies, which led to the adoption of mandatory voting, in the context of other democracies. TWOMEY, A.

Chapter 8 Navigating Masculinities Across the Cultural Ditch: Tales from Māori Men in Australia Richard Pringle & Paul Whitinui Introduction Contemporary Australia is multiethnic yet the lucky country has not always induced good luck for its indigenous population or non-white settlers. More bluntly, Australia’s history of race relations can be regarded as shameful (MacLeod 2006). Colin Tatz (1999) reported, in relation to the United Nation’s definition of genocide, that policies adopted by both state and federal governments up until the 1970s constituted genocide against the Aboriginals. Australia’s official immigration policy prior to 1947 also aimed to keep its population white (MacLeod 2006) and, more recently,
The Australian Human Rights Commission held inquires into areas of discrimination and human rights; recommendations are made to the government for the removal of discrimination and legislation which doesn’t fulfil with UN human rights treaties. Non-legal responses such as Lobbying by NSW Gay and Lesbian rights lobby argues that the legally recognised institution of marriage shouldn’t exclude same sex couples. It’s agenda is to advocate and promote the issue, to an extent this is seen effective as it generally speaks on behalf of same sex couples. Most of the responses to the recognition of same sex relationships are legal responses, changes to the law have recognised same sex relationships as having the same legal standing as heterosexual de facto relationships this is enforced through the Property (Relationships) Act
Discrimination Worksheet ETH/125 Discrimination is the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for arbitrary reasons. Prejudice is a belief or attitude. On the other hand discrimination is action. “Unlike prejudice, discrimination involves behavior that excludes members of a group from certain rights, opportunities, or privileges” (Racial and Ethnic Groups, Thirteenth Edition, 2012, p. 35). Stereotyping is when there are unreliable generalizations about all member of a group that do not take individual differences into account.
English Essay – Task 8 Texts: Image 2 & Born Into Brothels There are so many different social issues in the world right now. However due to cultural differences, some social norms in other parts of the world would be considered outrageous here in Australia. When we as Westerners view the documentary “Born Into Brothels” by Zana Briski and the image taken by Oded Balilty, our attitude is to respond negatively to the social issues being represented in these texts because they challenge naturalised values and beliefs towards equal rights for men, women and children. Briski and Balilty achieve this response via their use of cinematography, mise en scene and composition. In the image taken by Oded Balilty, the composition and mise en

Written 3 The Racial Hatred Act The Racial Hatred Act, introduced in October 1995, is in place so that people can complain to the Australian Human Rights Commission about racially offensive or abusive behaviour.
