Australia is still fighting racism and it’s time we faced up to it – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): Unfortunately race discrimination, racism and racist violence remain a significant problem today in Australia.

While our laws and policies are not overtly or expressly racist, systemic, institutional and structural forms of race discrimination continue to affect Indigenous people and people from migrant and refugee communities.

We can acknowledge the progress made, but we must also have an honest dialogue about the challenges we face. Too many Aboriginal lives are blighted by the lack of realisation of the right to racial equality.
