I've seen a fair few videos on Youtube on Australians being racist towards English and French people.

I wouldn't be suprised if this was indeed racism when they say "No Indian's or Asian's."

Damn it, Britain.

I apologize: I'm sorry on behalf of any Briton's that are racist to you, or to people in general.

I don't mean to suggest that all Australian's are racist, but seeing the videos I have isn't helping their case in this thread. It goes both ways, but this thread is about Australian's.

There is a degree of enculturated difference though - in the UK "****" is a deeply offensive term, while in Australia it's just shorthand for "Pakistani", most often used in relation to the cricket team ie "it's the Pakis versus the Pom at the Gabba". So offensive it's censored by the UM automatic censor.
We even have potentially offensive terms for other states here, Banana Benders for Queensland, Mexicans for New South Wales, we call the people of Tasmania inbred and so forth.
The words are potentially offensive but the use isn't. Nine times out of eleven.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.
