    Sharan Kaur is a second year student at Australian National University. She is Singaporean by nationality. She recounted her brush with racism in the first week of her stay in Australia in mypaper, a Singapore tabloid. She was dancing with 3 other foreign students in a night club and were pushed into a corner and laughed at by 3 Australian girls. She was initially mad. But as she met more Australians, she realised that 'Not all Aussies are racist'. And this was the title of her article in the paper.

    Her conclusion is expected for a young student visiting Australia for the first time and it is easy to jump to conclusion on the first ugly encounter. Then she went on to describe the social behaviour of Asian students who tend to click together and not mixing with the Aussies. And the Aussies do not know how to engage them. And neither would the Asian students know how to engage the Aussies in a foreign land. It takes both parties to take the initiative to be friends or to be racist. The latter is my view.

    Her conclusion is that Asians are more racist by not trying to mix with the Australians. She used a few social behaviour of Asian students to conclude that Asians are racist while not all Aussies are racist. At least that is the impression I got from her article. She did not regret for being a victim of racism but was grateful for the experience.

    I think the Asians deserve to be attacked in Australia for their racist attitude and behaviour. They just do not know how to mix with the Aussies. The Aussies must teach them a lesson by pushing them or stabbing them until they become less racist. Burn them if possible to enlighten them.

    Let's celebrate that not all Aussies are racist and kick the asses of the racist Asians. They are to be blamed for the attacks.

    PS. I am trying to recall if there have been incidents where racist Asians attacked or pushed Aussies out of nothing in Australia.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
