Now days people see too far into issues and it simply just becomes an issue of wether it is politically correct or not. If Adam Goodes got booed because he was aboriginal, then every other aboriginal footballer would get booed yes? Adam Goodes is simply playing the victim and taking abusing his position as an aboriginal. If anyone disagrees with the conclusion that booing Adam Goodes is racist, they are seen as a politically incorrect and racist, as now days society cares more about what’s happening than why it’s happening. Most people understand that Adam Goodes is being booed, but they don’t understand why and therefore they hope on a prejudicial bandwagon thinking anyone that boos Adam Goodes is a racist pig.
Jack Davis’ didactic play explores the nature of white society and the mistreatment of indigenous Australians as they struggle to survive in sub-human conditions amidst the great depression. Davis uses a variety of dramatic literary techniques to depict how hostile white culture controls society using apartheid-style policies. The lack of recognition and understanding led to unfair actions, as the indigenous battled to survive the depression. The ironic and contemptuous justification of power for misguided political agenda, unfortunately led to mass dispossession of the indigenous. Contrastingly, not all white Australians can be generalised by the behaviours of the few, with a couple of dissimilar figures being used to demonstrate alternate approaches as to the acceptance of the indigenous.
Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.
Their methods also alienated whites, this occurred through the violence that Malcom X emphasised along with self-defence. Leaders such as Malcom X orated about arming themselves to stay safe; this caused the whites to increase their fear of the black Americans. Black Power were reluctant to use legal means and they preferred direct confrontation, for example ‘Police the pigs’ campaign after 1966. This slowed the progress of the civil rights movement because without the help of the white American’s they were unable to achieve change which in turn weakened the movement. By alienating the whites, defacto change could not occur which meant that dejure change couldn’t be pushed through, with the reluctance of the African Americans to work with the whites this caused the biggest impact to weakening the civil rights movement of the 1960’s.
Tom Robinson is later seen as guilty. Even though it is very obvious that Bob Ewell is guilty, mainly because Tom’s left hand is useless. Because of Tom’s race, the people who see him as innocent will be looked down upon. Racism killed Tom.
How Does alan jones perpetuate negative racial stereotypes? in 2005 a series of violent incidents occurred in southern sydney known as the Cronulla riots. these were a series of clashes and mob violence. these riots were racially driven and triggered conflict between the two main cultures, mainly men of the middle eastern appearance an fair skinned anglo australians.understandably people were horrified and shocked at the brutality and violence between these two groups.The media portrayed the incidents from many perspectives but one sydney radio station; 2GB encouraged their breakfast presenter to express a strong opinion against the men of the middle eastern appearance.

A great contributor to this issue was racism among the white population. Whites in both the North and South felt that they should not have to compete with blacks for jobs and felt that they should be a submissive race like they were before. Many whites were horrified and insulted at the fact that blacks were trying to get employment in any other job other than farming and field
World War II (1939-1945) led Australians to fight for their rights and freedom, and whilst the wars overseas were coming to an end, Aboriginal Australians were still denied basic rights and freedom, yet living in their own country. Although there were government policies that expressed that all Australians must be viewed alike in their attitudes and customs, aboriginal people were still discriminated in all levels. They were expected to assimilate and blend in with the new 'White' Australia. It was very difficult for the aboriginal people to blend into the British community, the reason being that both aboriginals and the British had not much in common, including: Cultures, values, way of living etc. In the other hand, there were also discrimination
Inherently, Australia is a multicultural society and each person should have a right of feeling welcome. Rutton (2013: 10) reports that he has witnessed discrimination based upon race in Australia. If the changes are effected, then people from other races will be subject to humiliation, just because of their race. The proposed changes makes unlawful acts that will intimidate by means of causing fear or physical violence. Clearly, this does not protect vulnerable people from being unfairly discriminated against or humiliated due to their race or national or ethnic origin
Aboriginal Peoples: Racism in Colonial Context * The agent was the sole authority in this community and they had all the power to punish or deprive, this worked to break down the traditional authority system , so it basically broke down their social structures * A second element of denationalization was attempted destruction of culture * Natives relied on government handouts because they could not sustain their own lives (they were only allowed to hunt and fish when the Indian agent said they could * The federal government still control when they natives can hunt and fish * Condition on the reserve: no employment, except for those who serve Indian agent therefore poverty and hunger arose and became a serious issue * People faced with
