    Every time someone says, “Don't get me wrong, I'm not racist but...” I just look at them and say, “... says every racist just before they're going to make a racist comment”.

    When my brother made a racist generalisation, I said “I'll just go & get your white hood & cloak for you then, shall I?” He was silent then & I could see he was thinking it over.

    A friend shared an anti-Islamic article on Facebook; the information in it was inaccurate and inflammatory. I posted a response pointing out the inaccuracies in the article, the dangerous nature of posting articles that promoted mistrust and hated against a whole religious group of people and I also put forward a different point of view.

    Whilst I was shopping at a book store, a lady came up to me and did the ‘slanty’ Asian look at me with the use of her fingers and muttered “Asian”. I could not believe how rude she was. I went and approached her in store and told her off. She just walked away ignoring me. I then reported her to the shop assistant and he confronted her.

    I lead the creation of Cultural manners for our workplace. My team members had received all kinds of inappropriate, ignorant and hurtful comments and questions as Aboriginal guides working at a tourism attraction. We documented all the commonly asked stupid questions and our insightful and humorous answers to them into a handout so now our visitors pick up their manners on the way into our park to improve the psychological safety of our workplace for our team.

    At school our class was talking about how people of Asian culture succeed and that their families make it very important to them. A few of my classmates had the nerve to say that they are stealing jobs and making “Australians look stupid” and that “in Sydney schools, only like 1% is Australian and the rest Asian” and I said “excuse me but Asians are Australians too! A lot of them have been settled here for generations!” I was sent out of class for putting down another student because teachers avoid dealing with racism!

    One morning I was on the tram going to work. I was listening to music but became aware of a disturbance. On taking off my headphones, I heard a woman shouting and swearing at a young African secondary student. The young girl was looking quite distressed and I heard the woman call her a “black c**t”.
