There's A Really Simple Way To Stop The Racist Booing Of Adam Goodes | newmatilda.com

There's A Really Simple Way To Stop The Racist Booing Of Adam Goodes | newmatilda.com | anti-racism framework | Scoop.it

The rest of the nation: We'll continue to call it what it is. Racist.
And in the meantime, maybe the AFL can pull its finger out and actually do something practical to address the problem.

This week in Australian politics began with calls on the Abbott Government to prioritise Christian refugees over Muslim refugees fleeing the slaughter in Syria.
It was an Islamophobic principle embraced with enthusiasm by the Commonwealth, who announced on Wednesday that it would extend 12,000 places for Syrians, with priority to be given to ‘persecuted minorities’.
That’s ‘dog whistle’ for ‘not Muslims’.
