I was wondering what you all think about the current events happening in Sydney, Australia. Especially you guys outside of AUS. In case you dont know... 3 Lifeguards got the crap beaten out of them on Cronulla beach by a group of ethnics because the lifeguards wanted them to stop kicking a ball around all the people sitting down. These guys that beat them up said things like its our beach and crap like that. Anyways this created a mass street protest by the "Whites" about reclaiming the beaches which in turn became a riot between the "Whites" and the "Ethnics". Now we have had a few instances of random bashings because of color and also gangs trying to organise more street violence. Police our out in full force, they have even brought in new laws because of this. Personally I think anyone involved in this is stupid. Racism is for the weak. None of this should have started. I dont see how beating up a random person is going to help those lifeguards. I know this is nothing compared to some countries, but its pretty darn big for a Aussie issue. And I wonder how this makes an outsider view and think of Australia? This would have to be the biggests racial conflict we have had in my lifetime.

It did surprise me to hear this happening in Australia, but that's just because I know nothing about what goes on there. It shouldn't have surprised me though, because the same sort of thing happens all over the world. It's a result of the world's overpopulation in general. People vent their frustrations on the 'foreigners' , even if they were born locally. The more crowded a place gets, the more racial/cultural violence you will see. :(


When in doubt, gas it!

I heard that the lifeguards got attacked by some hispanic looking guys. Then some drunk white dudes beat up lots of hispanics. Then black people and others joined the hispanics, and Nazis and commies joined the white people.

Well, how much fun is it to have a real life WW2 sim on your hands? I imagine not very.

Just wondering, if there were a lot of people sitting on that beach, why didn't they arrest the attackers and prevent all this hassle? Or was it a huge group of attackers that outnumbered the rest? A link would be nice, I didn't find anything with a quick search, and it is a bit hard to say anything without sources.

Anyway the racist attacks are a very sad event and I'm sure the police will do what they can to stop them, and sure they will bring in the army if they need to. Hopefully it will calm down soon.

It hasn't changed my view on Australia much so far though, the French riots didn't exactly change my views on France either, those things usually are caused by small minorities that will take any reason to start a fight. Other things have already given a picture of Australia being a bit racistic. (Putting people in camps etc.)

I havent heard anything about these racist incidents in Australia except on this forum itself where Spazy posted about his Lunchroom brawl. But then I haven't been able to see much of the new in the past week.

These kind of racist and etnic related fihts happen all over the world, it's a shame that you now seem to getting the same sort of thing. It's one big domino effect if you ask me where more and more hatred is grown. Just look at Spazy, he was stupid enough to hit back "because they said they hated Australians" :n0e: as you can see this will leed the guys he fought with to take him back. Then the Australians will hit back on that group again etc. General trust will disappear and one is the respect.

Now project this on national scale and you will see what problems this caused. If everybody "hits back because they started first" it will get worse and worse and worse. If people only where smart enough to fight with words but it looks like most populations have a large group of idiots walking around who do are unable to solve there problems via any other way then violence. :vikki:

Whatever happened to racists calling each other slurs instead of starting national riots? Sure it's not nice but I'd rather be called a cracker than get the shit beaten out of me by whoever would attack me. Sounds like the world needs to implament a shoot to kill policy for rioters.

Thankfully there's no racism in America. Wait...

Sounds like my Gov. teacher. Some of his political views are pretty harsh when it comes to crime. I wouldn't mind it though. Rioters are mindless, violent, retarded idiots, shoot em' all!
