Both internationally and at home, these attacks have been used as evidence of allegedly widespread European Australian racism, especially by the Australian mainstream media which loves to run stories about how evil and racist white Australians are.
Yet in the CCTV footage that Richardson posts of one particular attack, the attackers appear to be of non-European origin.
So what is going on here? Why would white Australians and white society be condemned for something they appear to have had no part in?
The answer, I believe, is quite simple: when it comes to allegations of racism, whites are always quilty until proven innocent. Moreover, it is only ever people of European descent who can be guilty of racism - non-European peoples are completely incapable of such a thing.
These are the rules that our modern, liberal, multicultural society seems to live by.
