Still Can'T Call Australia Home

no matter how long I have lived here I am treated as an outsider.Its the eve before australia day.
For some this is the day where its celebrated and parioticalled accepted and expected that drunk or white male supremists get together and bully,intimidate anybody that doesn’t sound or look like an local ‘aussie’. The alcohol fuelled racism has begun early the night before. You are minding your own business and it seems around this time everyone’s free license allows them to be as racist and as non-inclusive as possible. The chanting or the slurs about color as you walk past. The intimidation and aggression of those wrapped in the aussie flag calling out racist obscenities on a PA system. The constant stares of intolerance and being looked up and down and assessed. The blokes mentality of how the opposite sex should look like and behave and dress and if you are not like this then you need to be singled out and harassed. Silly comments that women are taking over everything and that somehow having black skin means you are a threat. It gets to you and you feel like going on a payback rampage yourself. You know you have done everything to fit in but the skin color always sets you apart like a disease with spots. The constant harrasment and assumption too that being brown means you speak with an indian or foreign accent and are a muslim from the west. The comments freely made that just coz your skin is a different colour then you must blow things up for a living like all terorrists. The fact that you have to equate your plans around how long you cdan stay out before hiding or weather you can indeed go out and face the day of onslaughts.

If it makes you feel any better...I am a caucasion American...and I get discriminated against. But it would be harder to not even have to open your mouth.....just get it on sight. But yeah... I now have an idea of what it is like to be a minority. Silent discrimination. The grey areas are all they need to quietly but effectively put you in your place.

I'm also outsider, I really hate Australia because the people just don't really care what you are. Some of my friends really hates Australia because all the rude people in the world. they just make and create trouble, they are called troublemakers. The government force different countries to come to Australia to live. This is called the Australia is a jail country. I really want to leave this s*&t Australia and never coming back forever.

The majority of Anglo Australians are intolerant or even annoyed of people from any non-Anglo background, doesn’t really matter what colour or ethnicity. Australia is their country only, and they view themselves as superior to non-Anglos. Even the indigenous Aborigines are seen as undesirable. They have only become citizens in their ancestral Land of Australia since the late sixties. A considerable part of the self-righteous pseudo Anglos are second and third generation migrants from all sorts of background who have lost their pride and dignity in order to be accepted by the redneck population which represents the majority. If you are not being accepted by the Rednecks for whatever reason, you will have to settle for a secondary position in employment and in society in general for the rest of your life if you stay here. And you can bet your balls on it that every word of this statement is true. You are and never will have the freedom to be an individual. You are expected to be a clone of the others and talk the same crap and behave in the same ridiculous manner as them.
Migrants to Australia from industrialized countries or the third world it doesn’t matter squat to them.
What are people from developed countries looking for when thinking to migrate to this Island with immense wide spaces, endless sunshine, beaches and ocean on the end of the world?
You have got to be prepared to give up your dignity if you come to live here. You can live here a hundred years and you will be never integrated in to the Aussie society. The Anglo-Australian mentality is that since you are the one who migrated to Australia, you are a lesser human being by proxy. If your country would be any better than Australia, you wouldn’t want to come here, RIGHT? Even toilet cleaners will feel like they are personally involved in the generous decision to let you live in their country and demand your limitless gratitude for them.
When you come to Oz on a professional skilled visa, you come because you can prove previous performance for years in your profession. Otherwise they wouldn't let you in. And when you get here, they tell you that they are the best in the world and make you study what you have studied ten years ago. They will tell you that they are the best in everything, but not because some independent opinion of their performance. It is based on their own opinion about them self. Ok, you say let’s do it then. They take your money for another year or two or whatever and once you start working you will find that they just a bunch of arrogant morons.

BINGO!! If you are not being accepted by the Rednecks for whatever reason, you will have to settle for a secondary position in employment and in society in general for the rest of your life if you stay here. And you can bet your balls on it that every word of this statement is true. You are and never will have the freedom to be an individual. You are expected to be a clone of the others and talk the same crap and behave in the same ridiculous manner as them.
