Insightful view of Australia's race policy.

Marr deftly weaves together the many threads of contemporary Australian racism and its politics. The way he carefully traces Howard's development of racist dog-whistle politics and the effect of Hanson on his politics was illuminating.

Biased personalised Analysis

The author expressed a personalised opinion attacking the person from an arrogant liberal position. The kind of contempt shown actually encourages people to vote for her and people like Trump. Please let us have some rational analysis, or it that a thing of the past.
