The Australian Flag.

I was in the city on Australia Day and watched people wearing the flag. Why was it only young white kids?
After watching the SBS news interviewing people at the Sydney BDO and listening to some racist drivel, I felt ashamed that John Howard and the Liberal Party have used the race card over the last few years and got young people to take the message in.
We never felt the need to be patriotic before. We loved Australia but displaying the flag was not done.
Australia is for everybody, not just the white people.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Agreed Neil - I'm not Australian born and have lived previously in NZ and the UK. I find it alienating and embarrasing when I see that sort of behaviour. In fact I didn't think flag waving really existed outside of the deep south of the USA! There is obviously so much to love about this country... do we really need to copy them. </title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

You can't assume that anyone displaying the flag or showing any kind of patriotism is some type of racist. Does that mean anyone with a shaved head is a Nazi skinhead or someone with dreadlocks is a pot smoking hippie?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
