MELTING POT.

Take a pinch of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty bit of red indian boy
Oh like a curly latin kinkies
Oh lordy, lordy, mixed with yellow chinkees, yeah
You know you lump it all together
And you got a recipe for a get along scene
Oh what a beautiful dream
If it could only come true, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for
A hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Rabbis and the friars
Vishnus and the gurus
We got the beatles or the sun god
Well it really doesn't matter
What religion you choose
And be thankful little mrs. graceful
You know that livin' could be tasteful
We should all get together in a lovin machine
I think I'll call up the queen
It' s only fair that she knows, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for
A hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Coffee coloured people
Coffee coloured people
Coffee coloured people by the score

Humans evolved from primates that are now extinct which had thick dark hair covering pale skin. When the world's climate changed, our ancestors walked out of the thick forests, and into the hot arid landscape of Africa. Our skin darkened gradually by process of evolution. While some migrated to cold parts of the planet and returned to pale skin, those remaining in hot climates darkened. Therefore, if pale humans remain on this hot dry continent long enough, they will progressively adapt to the climatic conditions and darken. This of course takes thousands of years. But by that time, due to globalisation and accompanying population shifts, we will become so ethnically intermixed, in Australia and the world we will morph into one race with various shades of brown. Right wing authoritarian mind set will still persist, because low intellects will still exist, they will just find new difference to loathe and fear, and minorities distinguished by big feet, back hair or baldness will be blamed for all the crime and for sponging of welfare.
"When the world's climate changed, our ancestors walked out of the thick forests, and into the hot arid landscape of Africa."

Is this your own theory? Which 'thick forests'? Why would they choose an arid climate?

"in Australia and the world we will morph into one race with various shades of brown"

Thrilling. And that, of course, will obliterate 'racism'(except among those with a low IQ, who presumably will survive and hate on people with darker or lighter skin than themselves).

IMO, anyone who is happy about the (supposed) eventual obliteration of their own biological group (assuming you are 'white') is mentally ill, much like 'low IQ racists'.

I prefer not to speak to people who loathe their own ethnic group so much that they would happily see it wiped out, so I'll say goodbye to you.

Exactly my point. There's nothing educationally viable about delivering courses this way - it only reduces the need to pay anyone a wage as well as claim it reduces the footprint ;)

The problem is that most people do not learn as well without the social component. Studying in isolation can be as difficult for people as studying with a bunch of people who can't understand, speak or read the language of instruction.

Precisely.

It becomes overwhelmingly obvious to people who have lived in numerous countries around the world that the Japanese, Chinese and Koreans, for example, will generally discriminate against people who have darker skin than they do. Everyone becoming brown isn't going to help with the issue of racism, it's only a remark thrown around that is supposed to 'scare the racists' LOL.

The research doesn't have any real legs, and it's been disproved repeatedly even by its advocates. There's simply no way to take it seriously.

They didn't choose an arid climate, the world's climate changed. About 1.5 million years ago the earth underwent a major drought, driving pale skinned hairy hominids out of the lush rain forests and into an open arid landscape. Gradually they lost their body hair and their skinned darkened under high the UV of the african sun. The first modern humans were dark skinned africans. Some of these early africans gradually drifted away from the tropics and into cooler regions of the northern hemisphere to become light skinned europeans and east asians. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3...

There are no distinct biological groups as you put it. We are all essentially the same with skin colour being the greatest variant among humans, and that is in response to climatic conditions. So if in a thousand years humans evolve to be white, brown or black in response to climate, it does not matter. Who cares if people are brown or white in a thousand years except of course to racists.

It matters to you, because you have an outdated 19th century concept of race, and judge people solely in terms of their biology, and less on other qualities. Possibly because subconsciously you lack in confidence, and as such have an internal need to degrade others, as a means of masking a low self-concept of yourself --feelings of inadequacy either about how you look or a semi-awareness of the limits of your intelligence.

<quoted text>You are resorting to the old strawman argument tactic that adolescents and low intellects typically use. I never said those things, and you know it.

What I did say is that racists have impaired vision blinkered by fear of diversity and are therefore blind to the beauty in human beings different to themsleves.(It is a quite sad state of mind really).

People who arrive in a foreign land seek the support of fellow expat's who speak the same language, but as they intergrate into the host country they or their offspring venture out into the mainstream. What draws them together is common language and not simply race and preferring their own kind.

I never said I support mass immigration from the third world, but I do support controlled immigration, particularly highly skilled migrants regardless of their ethnicity.

Racism is a social problem and should be treated with education programs, however heightened and more severe racism that is medically diagnosed as clinical xenophobia, with delusional characteristics, visible manifestations in behaviour: agressiveness, abusiveness, paronioa and reclusiveness needs to be treated as any other psychiatric disease.

I believe the best approach, particularly among the young is education. Studies show that "early adolescents are highly authoritarian, with significant reduction occurring in middle and late adolescence-largely because of cognitive development". So they are more likely to embrace right wing racist notions, but this reduces as their cognitive abilities improve, while low intellects get left behind, and retain an immature view of the world well into adulthood.

Since racists tend to have limited intelligence, increased anti-racist education particularly in the formative years, will assist in moderating their conservative/racist mindset, and help them form a more balanced world view, become well adjusted adults with greater prospects for employment and success in relationships with others.

I believe there is still hope for you even though you rate high on the fascist scale.

Mohammad returned home after school.
"How was your day, Mohammad?" his mother asked.
"My name is not Mohammad. I'm in Australia and now my name is Kevin."
"Are you ashamed of your name? Are you trying to dishonor your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you!"
And his mother beat him. Then she called his father, who beat him again.
The next day Mohammad returned to school. The teacher saw all of his bruises. "What happened to you, Kevin?” she asked.
"Well miss, shortly after becoming an Australian, I was attacked by two F***ing ‘Arabs’….
Here’s how a doctor explains it:
A woman in her late 20's came to the hospital today with her 8th pregnancy.
She said to me me "My mum told me that I am the breadwinner for the family."
I asked her to explain.
She said that she can make babies and babies get money from the Government for the family.
It goes like this:
The Grandma calls the Department of child services and Centrelink, and states that the unemployed daughter is not capable of caring
for all of her kids. And they agree, then tells her the children will need to go into foster care.
The Grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and receives a cheque for $400 per child each month.

Total yearly income:
$72,000 pa and soon to be more when the 8th one is born, tax-free and nobody has to go to work In fact, they get more if there is no husband/father/man in the home! The brother does not count.

Not to mention free dental treatment, free housing, free school dinners, free tuition fees at college or Uni, free eye care and glasses,
free prescriptions and various other benefits...

Total value of all benefits combined probably approaching $120,000 per annum.

That's about my salary as a senior consultant with years of experience and surgical skills in a Melbourne teaching hospital.

Indeed, Grandma was correct that her fertile daughter is the "breadwinner" for the family.

This is how the politicians spend our taxes.
When this generous programme was invented in the '60s, the Great Society architects forgot to craft an end date... and now we are
hopelessly overrun with people who vote only for those who will continue to keep them on the dole.....

No wonder our country is broke!

In fact, you have used ad hominem and straw man arguments rather than address my earlier point in which I informed you that Obama has claimed that he dated and married Michelle rather than his previous lover because he wanted to share his life with someone who was culturally similar to himself.

Do you claim that Obama is racist and has a low IQ?

No for many reasons, Obama is clearly not racist as he mixes with both white and black, and he himself is a mix. High profile American politicians with his aspirations choose partners that will best fit their image and improve their standing in pursuit of their careers. If he exclusively dated black women, and never mixed with whites I would agree, but its not the case.

Yes this is what I believed as well. However I managed to get working papers from six major Australian universities on major planning issues for the future. The only common one in all the universities was social inclusion (there were of course others). Social inclusion involved
- social integration of international students
- integration of local students with campus life
- access of facilities to regional students
- access to facilities to disabled students
- access to facilities to indigienous students
What interested me was the movement of students after enrolment. I always figured that students move campus or unviersity because of grades. Infact grades was only a minor issue. Feelings of disconnection to student body, lack of access to facilities and dissatisfaction with current facilities motivated students to change campus or university.
The point is students ostensibly choose universities based on location/prestige/course availability, but the reality is that quality of life factors are also major determinants. Just look at the 2013 Good Universities Guide, it's one of the critical criteria students use. But yes as you say it's not the only one.
Ok, and in fact the university students I refer to are mostly those who have entered university after some time in the workforce - so the situation may well be different for school leavers - they may have different priorities.

More than low IQ, racist behavior can be attributed to the upbringing of children. In several countries, parents teach their children, albeit indirectly, to stay away from certain types of people. At a young age, children do not react much to the people, against whom they are being provoked, but as they grow up, the hatred s increased manifold, and at times, may even come out in the form of violence. Hence, the methods used by parents to raise their children need to change, and racism will gradually die out!
