My friend Kristin has created two phenomenal young women, one of which went on a Year 9 (14 and 15 yr old kids) excursion today, where they met our Prime Minister (Head of State for my overseas friends).
He foolishly asked if they had any questions for him and the students at Newtown Performing Arts School did not hold back. This gives me hope in the future of our country!
Trevor, aka Uncle T-Rev aka a Chinese-Australian man had this as his facebook status today and as he simply owned the fuck out of some racist pig, I had to share it:
"Someone came up to me and asked me..What my name was..I said its Trevor and he replied thats not a very Asian name ..and I replied back ..wot name should I have then..maybe Fook Yu;-)"

I’ve long said that if my Dad, aka #ebsdad, knew how to use the internet he would be internet famous.

This photo just came up on my Facebook timeline with a caption from the person who screenshotted it saying:
“So this is Australia in 2013 - My best friend, may hard working, loving friend has been trolled by someone who is meant to be her competitor. This is racism, this is offensive. I’m actually so anger by this, the LFL need to discipline this ‘woman’ #racismitstopswithme”.
Welcome to Australia friends where blackface and golliwog jokes are a commonality….
Help us raise awareness about Indigenous rights so that all Australians are recognised equally.
