Were not that racist, were the one of the most multicultural countries in the world.<br />
I can't say I love the asians that come here, but I dont go around abusing them. That's cheap.
I never heard that Australia is racist nation. <br />
Although, I have come across a few specific Australians here that are far too nationalistic for my liking.
Oops. Lived here for almost 50 years and never knew we were racist!!
racism is everywhere...it just happens australia is extremely multi-cultural...there will always be clashes....but i still love aus :)
Don't know about the Open -- but a few years ago one of your national politicians (sorry, can't remember his name) did a pretty good job of fostering that impression.
