Unjust Racism in Australia

 Hi all- in the light of what we have been discussing in both Australian Literature and William Blake it is really worth mentioning this report that has just come out of the United Nations about the deeply engrained racism that is still part of the Australian landscape. William Blake would have been horrified and many of our greatest Australian authors (including David Malouf) would throw up their arms in despair. But here it is. Here is the objective unbiassed report by the United Nations that tells us Australians – in no uncertain terms- to wake up to ourselves and to recognize our deep prejudices and do something to change these deeply engrained habits. Please read their full report at the following address. This is potent information for all our current literature studies:
