    "Racism Very Much Alive in Australia"

    Racism very much alive in Australia, says Dr Charles Teo

    Dr Charles Teo, the son of Chinese immigrants, who prolonged the life of Jane McGrath and has saved the lives of hundreds of Australians, said it was wrong to deny there was racism in Australia.

    At a launch of Australia Day Council celebrations yesterday, Dr Teo said that racism was still "very much alive in Australia".

    "I don't quite like it when I hear politicians reassuring the Indians that there's no racism in Australia. That's bull-----," he said.

    A Herald Sun poll on the issue has drawn an emphatic response from readers, with more that 83 per cent of 8257 respondents thus far agreeing that racism is still prevalent.

    Former premier Jeff Kennett, former Australian Medical Association president Dr Mukesh Haikerwal, singer Kamahl and ex-police commissioner Christine Nixon have all said that racism exists.

    But Premier Ted Baillieu said he did not think Australia was a racist country.

    "I don’t deny, and I don’t think anyone would deny, that there are in any community people with racist attitudes,” Mr Baillieu said.

    "My message to them is that Victoria has a very, very proud record of defending our multicultural base and promoting that multicultural community.

    "We will not tolerate any form of discrimination.”

    Dr Teo said his daughter had been a victim of racism.

    "My daughter was just saying to me the other day, very sadly, she doesn't like Australia Day because she has in the past dressed up, got into the spirit of things, put a sticker on her face, worn the green and gold and been told by drunk Australians to go home because she looks Chinese," he said.

    "That's so sad, because you can't get more Australian than my daughter."

    He knew of an Indian neurosurgeon who had come to Australia to study for three months who was spat on in the street and told to "go home".

    But Dr Teo, who holds the Order of Australia, said migrants also had a responsibility to integrate into Australian society.

    Mr Kennett said that racism occurred among children, but he taught his own grandchildren to be tolerant of other races.

    "I think there always will be elements of racism and it is often manifest itself in different ways," he said.

    Kamahl, who came to Australia from Sri Lanka in 1953, said: "Of course there are bad apples, people who are racist ... Educated minds and educated hearts are required to stop racism."

    Melbourne was gripped by a wave of racist assaults on Indian students in 2009, which has been blamed for a drop in the number of students from that country enrolling here this year.

    Dr Haikerwal, victim of a vicious bashing in 2008, said Australia was overall a welcoming society, but racism did exist.

    He was in "the wrong place at the wrong time" when he was attacked, but Indian students were racist targets.

    "Attacks shouldn't happen against guests of our nation," he said.

    Former Victorian police commissioner Christine Nixon said all Australians had come from other countries.

    "There is racism particularly against our own Aboriginal people and it always surprises me since we've all come from other places," she said.

    Good to hear that Australians are still ethnocentric, at least to this degree. Although I wouldn't feel too hopeful just from reading this article - because Swedish media is also full of exaggerated articles like "Sweden is such a evil country towards its poor immigrants, Mohammed's life is pain". Even though we all know that Sweden is the least racist country on the planet.

    You'd think these daily examples of 'extreme evil racism' would bring up the idea: "hey, what if different races/cultures really shouldn't live together?"

    But no. If everybody just puts a little more effort in it, we can make it work!

    I agree, I do think quite a sizable chunk of White European Australians do tend to hold some ethnocentric/nationalistic views but a lot are terrified of being called the R word and rarely, if ever speak out publically. We do have your typical lefty do-gooders here who try and take over everything and infect it with their PC, pro-immigrant, anti-white crap. Despite this I think a lot of Australians are fast waking up to the rubbish that is multiculturalism and I feel that leftist views are waning. You only have to look at the comments on the electronic editions of daily newspapers here in Australia. They often sound as though they were written by members of the far-right.

    "The Ones" who are making sure all of these immigrants find their way to our countries are very aware of that idea. In fact, that's why they are bringing them here, to breed chaos.

    You see, this beast is afraid of the light, and so long as everyone else is confused and busy fighting each other, he may remain hidden, only to leave the shadows to pick up the pieces afterwards.

    I gotta say I have a lot of respect for Dr. Teo, the man is a great surgeon and has saved the lives of hundreds of people. Last year I remember he controversially came out saying that feminism and political correctness had "sissified" men in Australia, something he copped a lot of flak for in the media but he had many men in Australia applauding him. I gotta say I was a little shocked when he came out with this, I am not saying he is wrong, after-all I do think a lot of White Australians have White preservationist views and sympathies. I think maybe it was a stunt to try and get back in the anti-white, pro-feminist Australian media's good graces after his previous statements. You always know Australia Day is around the corner when the media start doing stories on racism, xenophobia, bigotry and tolerance and trying to make White Australians feel guilty. It's never Australia Day without it.
