    Other Cultures to Blame for Violence: Anderson

    Rock singer Gary 'Angry' Anderson has sparked criticism over claims that Lebanese, Pacific Islander and "Indochinese" cultures have introduced weapons to Australian youth.

    Anderson told a federal parliamentary committee hearing that "Aussies use their fists" and there were racial and cultural reasons behind increases in weapon assaults.

    The former lead singer of hard rock band Rose Tattoo said he was not racist and that politically correct bureaucrats were failing to acknowledge the impact of youths from some migrant groups on school culture.

    "We have to acknowledge that they have a different view about how they deal with each other," he said.

    "It's not untoward for them to turn up to a fight with a hatchet."

    Outside the hearing, Anderson said that when he grew up, "Aussie kids didn't use weapons".

    "We've got to tell Lebanese kids and Indochinese kids that it might be all right where you come from but it's not all right here," he said.

    But Australia's race discrimination commissioner Graeme Innes said Anderson's comments were oversimplified and stereotypical.

    "There's no doubt that some violence in Australia has a racist motivation but to suggest that different racial groups come with weapons where Anglo-Australians don't is oversimplifying and stereotypical," he said.

    "To suggest Anglo-Australians haven't used weapons in the past is a bit of a nonsense."

    Mr Innes said any type of violence — whether with a knife or with fists — is not acceptable.

    That makes me want to watch "Beyond the Thunderdome" and than pump my angry fist in the air to the anthematic "We Can't Be Beaten!"

    I wonder what Angry might think if he knew we US Skinheads used to listen to his albums?

    "It's not untoward for them to turn up to a fight with a hatchet."
    My understanding is that most "white" Australians are descendant from the people of the British Isles. Well, I can assure Mr Anderson that showing up at a fight with a hatchet is quite within the Scottish and English traditions .

    True how ever when i was growing up only a coward didn't fight on equal terms eg fist vs fist

    "its" the Australian way to fight like a man against the odds even against armed opponents with in reason

    that's why knife crime is a "big" thing in Australian culture its seen as a cowards way
