Sorry kazz, raingauge does have a point. Lots people getting sucked into an opinion that Oz is a dangerous racist place.
How about a woman putting on a skirt & shirt to see who walks with her in
downtown Kabul?
I think the Mayans & Incas had a good handle on religion, worship the sun, no sun, all over red rover. It was a civlization the bloody spanish christians destroyed. Damn that religion.

...

We have racism here, but not to the stage of being a 'dangerous' place.
However if you believe that views on attire in Kabul is a racism issue then that underlines the misunderstanding of their culture better than I ever could in a thousand words.

Kazz. It makes no difference at all. What this girl did was LIE. Regardless of motives it was a scummy thing to do. No different to the false facebook post from Sarah Hanson young that suggested she said the main victim was the gunman. A lie is a lie. And yes. It's primary goals were to make this girl look like she gave a toss (which I highly doubt) and to make Australia look as racist as possible.

Some people just buy into anything because its trending on twitter or facebook and don't even bother to look any deeper and they want to feel part of it regardless of the motives. Brainless "D" class celebs and attention seekers are the worst offenders(some in here).. The fact remains while Sydney siders were being held hostage the muslims become the victims as if we were all lurking in the shadows ready to beat the crap out of any muslim in sight

Yeah. My first(and instsant) reaction to any social media trend/hashtag is cynicism. And I have NEVER been proven wrong. You name it. Kony 2012, bringbackourgirls. All of them. 99% of people that jump on board couldn't give a rats ass about the cause.

Yea and in regards to ISIS this is what the biggest problem is.. Social media... It needs to be shut down. It's letting people voice their beliefs across the world and its basically just throughing out a big fishing line and seeing what you can bring in. Eventually what ever point you are trying to put out is going to get a different effect on how they perceive the message. I honestly don't know if social media is a good thing or a bad thing?

Yes - agree with the above.

Attention seekers and the me too crowd. Prime examples of the dumbed down society we are now living in.

You all continue to pat yourselves on the back 'knowing' that you are right. Some of the comments in here are so full of bigotry it's astounding. You condemn people simply because of their faith, their culture or what they wear. Don't even try to argue that you don't, your words here tell the truth.

Your words also show that you blindly believe things that you read as long as they suit your agenda.

Yes, many followed the i'll ride with you trend only to find it was part of a fabrication, a fictional story. Strangely, isn't that how religion started? However it did express how many feel, there is a large silent majority out there who don't like seeing ethnics being singled out by looks, sneers, actions and worse of all words. Yet the dangers of speaking up often stop them from doing anything. The 'safety in numbers' aspect of that hashtag may just be a catalyst to improve this.

Does it show Australia to be racist? I don't believe so but with all strongly emotive phrases, individuals will relate to it using their own views.


To those who think it is racist & are offended by it I say "You doth protest too much."

This tidbit is doing the rounds on FB at the moment.

Is it a setup or for real... not sure... For me, I'm a bit of fence sitter, but this does strike a nerve somewhat!

Oh yes, what a great answer. The peaceful majority is irrelevant when it only takes a few bastards to bring nations to their knees killing millions. Doooo goodders wake up! What constructive steps have the peaceful majority of muslim taken here to prevent terror attacks?
Giving authorities tidbits of information is good but not good enough, they must be seen to be Australian first & muslim last.
Get rid of the troublemakers amongst them.

Kazz. I think you mistake bigotry for realism. At least in my case. I don't claim to speak for other. You see in my case I have no problem with Muslims, I have a problem with Islam. Just like I don't have a problem with Christian people. I have a problem with Christianity. There is a big difference. It is the institution of religion that is evil, not the belief itself. Religion is no different to any other ideology. Socialism is a great example. Most socialist people are great people. They come to their ideal through a compassionate heart and a desire for people to be treated fairly. That is beautiful I think. Unfortunately when it becomes a structured ideology it becomes an evil tyrannical monster. I highly doubt anyone else on this thread would ever attack or harass anyone else based on race, color or creed but the you suggest that is the case simply because they have the fortitude to face reality in all its unpleasantness. Not very nice.

Brett Cristianity and Islam are both faiths, ideologies if you must. Religions are different sects that co exist under the cloak of the faith. I am not sure but your above comment is a little confusing. Did you mean that you have no problem with the faith, but you actually have an issue with the religions that run under the said faith and distort the word of those faiths to suit their own agenda?

I am only going off past posts where you seem to have the problem with the religions not the actual faiths.

Different wording slippery but basically right. I have a serious dislike of the organised and structured side of religion. Putting rules and hard and fast beliefs to a faith gives people a very good reason to commit atrocities. Simply believing in god is never the problem but people must defend the specific 'truths' that particular religions have.

Religion was merely an early form of government to control the masses.

If we go back far enough, it may have had more to do with trying to understanding the world around us smile than any attempt to control other people.

Dead right Cosmic. Religion was simply a natural response to the human brain getting good enough that it allowed us to start asking questions but not being advanced enough to be able to answer them. So basically we made up a pile of stories to explain the unexplainable. Thing is, we should have passed that point now but it has been retained in order to control the masses of hairy unwashed as such. We no longer need religion but for some reason many cannot let it go.
