to all the australians who hear about news in america (ferguson, trayvon martin, school shootings) and pat yourselves on the back thinking we’re a better nation - we are not. racism is fucking rampant in australia, we just don’t have the ease of access re: weapons that america has. i am livid right now - this is sad, and disgusting, and inexcusable. i feel like our government will look back on our current treatment of refugees/asylum seekers/non-white australians in 20 years and admit how horrific, racist and inhumane it is. but fuck, people need to be loud about this NOW. if you support or defend the current government, this is what you’re supporting and defending. make no mistake - you can’t justify supporting tony abbott because you’re “only economically conservative!”. this is what you’re supporting. fuck australia, fuck abbott, fuck scott morrison. i am so ashamed and disgusted to be australian right now.
the lack of school shootings makes us a better nation by default
