As a kid back in the Sixties, I grew up in the inner south-west of Sydney. It was a district like so many others in Australia, being predominately populated by Anglo Saxons. However Marrickville was different, as it was one of the first suburbs inhabitated by immigrants. Or New Australians as they were more commonly known. I vividly recall catching the local bus through Marrickville with my brothers and playing 'Spot the Aussie'. Even back then we knew this was called 'racism'. Today, in a multiplicity of suburbs around Sydney this game would be called 'Spot the Anglo'. Check the list of 158 New Australians granted citizenship this week, proudly presided over by Acting Mayor, Clr. Wong. Click on this image at right and see how many Anglos you can find. I'm now a big fan of our multiculturalism. A once boring mono-cultural Australia has evolved into a multi-dimensional wonderland. Attention all New Australians - welcome to paradise !
