Australia is de facto a multicultural society
“In 2021 30% of Australia’s Population was born Overseas; 30%
in the paper it says 23%.. that’s in 2006. Both figures come from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.”
Australian Cultural Diversity narratives ignore Indigenous Australians
“The focus of this paper and the entire narrative of Cultural Diversity in this paper was based around migrant groups. People not born in Australia. That’s really important to know. “
Australia can be an example of contemporary cultural diversity
“What does the future look like in a country that by any standard was historically racist, now de facto multi-cultural, with growing populations but still clinging to a White Western European past?”
