In one of his inspired monologues some years ago the great Sam Kekovich set his mind to the question of Australian racism. “I’m no racist,” Slammin’ Sam thundered. “In fact some of my best friends should be sent back to where they came from.”
Sam’s hilarious analysis was born out last week when the extraordinarily gifted Australian neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo made the fairly unremarkable observation that some Australians were prone to displays of prejudice.
Teo added the deadly accurate footnote that the peculiar characteristic of Australian racism was that the moment anyone noted its existence, even with the stated qualifier that it only involved a minority, they were howled down. As if to prove his point, Teo was immediately smashed up by readers of websites throughout the land as a knocker, a hand-wringer, a whinger who should probably bugger off back to wherever he came from.
