The White Australia Policy has finally been documented succinctly in this three part series of the history of Australia.
Australian immigration policy has changed with the repeal of the White Australia policy in 1975 through the Racial Discrimination Act (Commonwealth). Subsequently, the surreptitiousness of the White Australia policy is embedded in the institutional attitudes of the law courts, the real estate agencies, the schools, the suburbs, in job localities and positioning within Australia. The immigration levels of Anglo-Celtic remain dominant whilst the minority groups are singled out for xenophobic public outrage, ie, Boat People and people in detention centres. Over a quarter of a million of South Africans were openly accepted into Australia after the end of the Apartheid era in the mid 1990s.
Enjoy this series which is running from the 9th January 2011 through till the end of January 2011 on air on SBS1 tv on Sunday at 8.30 pm.
