Sadly the reality of racism perpetrated by Australian politicians is much more extensive than that given by the nobody Senator this week.

This is Bruce Knobloch’s Facebook comment:

There is Fraser Anning’s fantasy White Australia racism, then there’s Turnbull and Dutton’s calculated election-priming racism, and then there’s Shorten, Plibersek, Albanese and Wong’s deathly racialised indifference to their political prisoners trapped on Manus and Nauru. To a self-starving 12-year-old boy who’s skin isn’t pale enough they feel the same.
