That article seemed rather balanced. I've just been reading some stuff on 'population' policy and on the origins of 'Multi-Culturalism'

I want to make a point about 'racism' and 'selective migration'. It is NEVER racist to make a determined decision to be selective about the nationality and religion of those we invite to join our growing community. It COULD be, but if the decision is based on reasons of political,and social cohesian, compatability, it is not racist. Racism is what the dictionary says it is. "To regard ones own race as 'superior' or anothers 'inferior'. Selective immigtation need not be based on ANY notion of superiority or inferiority. If someone tried to tell Malaysia they should accept more Chinese, they would be lynched, not because Chinese are regarded as inferior, but because the balance of population is around 48% malay to 38% Chinese, and they have had race riots in 1967. I call upon all thinking Aussies to REJECT notions of 'racism' when the subject of selective immigration is raised.
