0% Aussie Pride

If you're in the southern hemisphere (or read BBC news) you've probably heard about the Sydney race riots which have been happening for the last two nights. From what I can gather, it started when an "ethnic gang" (reportedly second-generation Lebanese) attacked two (white) lifeguards. This resulted in "thousands of young white men" attacking "people of Arabic and Mediterranean background".

One of the photos on the BBC website is "100% Aussie Pride" scratched in the sand on Cronulla Beach. Because obviously real Aussies are white intolerant anglos and that's something to be proud of.

I know this kind of thing isn't just Australia, but it's still scary that it comes as new terrorism and sedition laws are passed.

What is this country I have moved to?
