In Australia, at any given time, there are approximately fifty thousand persons living in the country illegally. How these people are treated by the system and culture of their adopted country is a story freelance journalist Wei Ling Chua had difficulty getting published. It is a story that no one wants to talk about on the record. Racism in Australia seeks to address, investigate, and expose what he considers to be a top secret campaign to strip these people of their basic human rights and, in some cases, their lives. Police brutality against the indigenous Aboriginal people is also brought to scrutiny. That authority figures are not held accountable for their own violent, racist acts is a crime in and of itself. In his opinion, this is perhaps due to the fact that Australia is a Western country. It is very professional in the exercise of public relations through the endless commission of enquiries with no actual intention to make any improvement to the situation. This is, unfortunately, the true nature of Australia. How a country with such a massive and ongoing history of notorious human rights violations against minorities has successfully managed to able to escape the scrutiny of the world media is a story worth telling.
