one of my followers is greek and her brother got assaulted on australia day this year because he was playing greek music in his car and was told to pack his family up and to go back where they came from so whoever was saying that racism towards greeks, italians etc. doesn't exist you are so fucking wrong
That makes me so fucking angry. Australia day is the most disgusting excuse for a holiday. >:\
If Greek people are ‘white’ then how come we were discriminated against in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s?
How come we were called barbarians?
Why were we, and still are called ‘uncivilised’, ‘crooks’ and ‘lazy’?And even though we are Orthodox Christians, and Australia ‘claimed’ to be ‘friendly to ANY Christian’ in the early 50s, why were Greeks and Italians still treated like shit? Why?
Any Christian as long as they’re white and Protestant. Even my English grandparents had some discrimination for being catholic (as they did in England too, mind you). They didn’t have the language barrier though, and they looked and acted the same as ‘Australians’. The same can’t be said of Italians and Greeks and I don’t think it has anything to do with being white - there are certainly Greeks and Italians who look white (and look as white as English peeps), it’s the other differences that were picked up on.
When I have a bad night at work, I walk down the road and buy a hotdog. Now I smell of mustard and caramelised onions. I’m comfortable and full but I have that wonderful angst that you get from bad days at work. I’m googling workplace bullying laws. Fun evening.
