This is a question Racist grandparents

It Came From Planet Aylia says: "My husband's mad Auntie Joan accused the man seven doors down of stealing her milk as he was the first black neighbour she had. She doesn't even get her milk delivered." Tell us about casual racism from oldies.

Thanks to Brayn Dedd who suggested this too

Get Your Casual Racism Here

Dear old Oz. Still the most racist place I've ever lived. Home to "Fuck Off We're Full" t-shirt and bumper sticker. Where Greeks and Italians happily call themselves "Wogs". Houses are oftenj described to me by the missus as "a bit woggy". There was even a TV show called "Wogs Out Of Work".

We had a fish and chip shop owner, Pauline Hanson, who started a political party that was based on pure racism. At first, she was against all of the Asians (over here, Asian general means Chinese, Vietnamese etc. Indains are called Indians and, up until very recently Pakistanis were called Pakis even on TV) then she morphed into hating Muslims. Eventually she was kicked out of parliament, did some time in jail for fraud, and then, without a trace of irony, announced she was emigrating to Britain to get away from all of the immigrants over here. That didn't last long. She was shocked to find out that Britain also had Muslims. And she really didn't like all of the dark skinned Brits. So she came back. Which was a shame.

I get racially abused at times. Generally when we win at cricket. I get called a whinging Pom - which is rich when you consider how much the average Ozzie spends whinging - generally about immigration. Which again, amuses me no end considering almost all of them are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants.

Then you have the regional divides. Queensland hates NSW and Victoria. Victorians regard Queenslanders as sheep-shaggers and rednecks. Adelaide ignores everyone as beneath it's notice. They consider themselves "cultured". Western Australia hates the rest of the country and wants to break from Australia as they have all the minerals and want to keep them for themselves. And we all ignore the top-end as nobody except Aborigines live up there.

I do like it over here.

Might want to give the band some heads-up. ;)
