Starting in 1998, a UWS research project has been in progress on the geography of racism in NSW.
Key findings of the Racism project include:
- While racism is quite prevalent in Australian society its occurrences differ from place to place.
- These variations have been largely overlooked by anti-racism campaigns in Australia.
- Most Australians recognise that racism is a problem in society.
- Racist attitudes are positively associated with age, non-tertiary education, and to a slightly lesser extent with those who do not speak a language other than English, the Australia-born, and with males.
Some real food for thought.
Thanks to @Jinjirrie for bringing this report to my attention.
