George Brandis' Racial Discrimination Act changes create the whitest piece of proposed legislation I've encountered

George Brandis' Racial Discrimination Act changes create the whitest piece of proposed legislation I've encountered | Whiteness & White Privilege | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about George Brandis’ now infamous comment this week that Australians “have the right to be bigots” is that it was so unremarkable.
