You also forget to mention how the federal election was gerrymandered by electoral boundaries. Which kept out of office your present political idol's, in your avatar, political party for the best part of a quarter of a century. Three years after braking the gerrymandered electoral boundaries a 'constitutional coup d'etat' was carried out with the help of Bjelke-Petersen.
Bjelke-Petersen made Richard Nixon look like an honourable person.
Now we are arguing about the details. And from where I stand Labor remained out of office because of the Labor split between the communist influenced Left and the democratic Right.
The Labor split was self inflicted and kept them out of office because Australians wouldn't vote for them.
I would think that someone who painted it as the responsibility of black people to do away with racism (your own, no less) would want to avoid throwing around the term "ignorant."
I think it's the responsibility of all people to get rid of racism. I'm not laying blame on black people I'm saying that each individual has the power to change the racial climate in America. I want all people to feel empowered not filled with guilt.
And you were being ignorant or at the very least when given the opportunity to clear yourself of any perceived ignorance you chose to make a snide remark.

If you look at the thread you are the first one to imply degrees of racism by stating that I must be "pretty fucking sick" implying that I am "more" racist.
Any child that has read the boy who called wolf knows the danger of falsely raising an alarm.
Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it
