    Brisbane. I suppose the obvious reason was because I am dark skin and Queensland is the most racist city in one of the most racist places on earth. But I didn't know that. Ingenue, I left the hotel and venture into a close japanese restaurant and ask for a table for myself...

    Where does this ozzie attitude
