Privileged WASP or WASC? Ugly whichever way you cut it.

Anti-racism protest at Australian Open

I was just about to post a rant on my FB page about a friend’s post about some drivel that the Oz PM was supposed to have made about “IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT” but oh dear! A quick google and… it was hoax – it seems she never made such a speech – according to the HoaxSlayer website.

I nearly fell for it – posting a quick response about “shame us Brits didn’t have such views when invading and decimating aboriginal culture in Oz and beyond”

Unfortunately some responses to my friend’s posting of the “speech” seem to indicate WASC (white, anglo-saxon, Christian rather than just WASP) privilege is quick to raise its ugly head although, it’s good to see people are still prepared to fight the good fight in Oz and beyond.
