Aus Does it again





Devil
Proving to the world that there is no other country more racial then Aus

Quote:
The ICC has asked Goolam Vahanvati, India's solicitor general, to investigate incidents of racial abuse that have taken place in Australia. His appointment follows an official complaint from the South African board.

Vahanvati will speak to venue staff, Cricket Australia representatives and ICC officials during his visit. He will then travel to South Africa and Sri Lanka to interview players and team officials from all three sides that participated in the recent Test and ODI series before reporting back to the ICC in March.

"Racism in any form is abhorrent and everyone in cricket is unhappy with the way in which players from international teams have been subjected to racist abuse in Australia," said Malcolm Speed, the ICC chief executive. "The actions of what would seem to be a small number of people are reflecting poorly on Australia and on cricket. It is essential that this issue is addressed.

"What is now important is that the ICC is provided with a clear and independent understanding of exactly what has taken place to ensure that cricket is able to respond appropriately."

Speed added that the Australian, Sri Lankan and South African boards had all offered their support. "Since the first incident was reported, Cricket Australia, Sri Lanka Cricket, the United Cricket Board and their players have been united in condemning this sort of behaviour. The entire international cricket community is united in its commitment to doing everything possible to eradicate any racist abuse

Actually, having lived in a number of countries, including Australia it is not particularly racist. I'm Australian for example, and I went out with an wonderful Indonesian woman. In Australia, for the most part, it doesn't matter where you come from, and you will be accepted for who you are. One of my best friends is of Indian decent, for example. We are a nation of immigrants and proud of that.

That said, there are some losers like Pauline Hanson. She made a lot of noise she made for the media, but then was comprehensively voted out. Unfortunately every country has loud mouthed losers who are a tiny minority, and Australia is no exception.

Australia is great because it has different cultures. I love the fact that we can get all sorts of good food, we have cuter girls from all different types of descent, and different traditions (most recently Chinese New Year). I like cricket, but also Yum Cha. I like Chess but I'm also learning to play Go, and I'm in love with the most wonderful girl in the world. I like that we could go to Lygon Street and eat Italian cakes and dessert, or we could eat Lebanese, or Greek, or Chinese, Thai, Malay, Korean, a steak or Sushi. I like that I can have a discussion of world view and not only hear one opinion, but many. I value the hard work that the immigrants brought (the electricity which I used for most of my life comes from the snowy mountains river scheme). People from any background can come to Australia and be accepted as an Aussie. That's one of the things which makes Australia such a great place to live.

Devil, shut up. Don't diss my country. In saying we're racist and you don't want to come here makes YOU racist. Nice job.
At the cricket, everyone chants to the opposition "you are a wanker", it's a tradition. And you've never been here, so stop making assumptions. America enslaves blacks, but when a couple guys bag a Sri Lanka guy suddenly all of Australia is racist. Please.
