faults in the clouds of delusion

Monday, January 07, 2008


Many, many years ago, during recess in a schoolyard in Sydney, two kids from the grade below mine jumped me and tried to beat me up. For a good five minutes till someone separated us, we were rolling around on the concrete and I was trying my best to give as good as I got. But I clearly remember that all during that time, even while I was fighting as hard as I could, my primary emotion was not one of anger or fear, but instead of surprise. Because, while they were hitting me, those two misbred marsupials kept repeating the word: Nigger. And I couldn't believe that someone could get things so wrong. Perhaps even on purpose.

Today I know better.

Wow. Anger much??

The shole things been beyond shocking though - just makes me hate the Aussies all the more. Repulsive.

I like dogs too much. Well not poms and 'min-pins'. But those are more suitable for running up to and kicking as far as you can.

I'm not about to tar all Aussies with the same brush - I've met many, many really nice Aussies to do that. But it is true that Aussies have a nasty reputation in South-east Asia, and at least some of them are extremely condescending, patronising and at times downright racist.

The worst is how many of them think they're still part of Europe - umm...just because you have the same skin colour as the Brits and the French doesn't mean you wannabes can lay claim to their achievements as well.

this isn't about all aussies, not by a long shot. it's about a few cretins. (and/or monkeys.)
