One Hi everyone, today I will be talking about how we live in a country where you can be too privileged to go to jail. Racism is very common in the culture of Australia; racism is more than just hatred or prejudice, It consists of hatred, prejudice and power. 
Two Just think about this. Two men both aged 27, one is aboriginal, Mr. Briscoe point to your left and here (point to right side) we have Mr. Sweeney who is not aboriginal. Mr Sweeney went to his friends birthday party at Crown Casino. According to witnesses he had been ignored by a few of the guests, near midnight Daniel who was under the influence of alcohol decided that he wanted to assault a man who was known as Richard Huiswaard. 
Three

He smashed a wine glass in the mans face and punched him twice in the head which resulted in the man to bleed. Richard was left needing stitches and time off work. Witnesses said that Mr Sweeney did not wait for the police he, “fled the scene like a coward” the Mr. Huiswaard said.

Four Now here (left side) we have Mr Briscoe who was also drinking with friends, but he did not assault or scar any ones face, on this day Briscoe encountered the police where he was chased and wrestled to the ground, He was taken to protective custody.

Mr Briscoe was complaining about a bleeding head wound that the police gave him when they tackled him, but Briscoe’s pleas for treatment were ignored by the Police who wee listening to music while he was choking and gasping, two hours later, the police finally decided to call an ambulance, there was no point because the innocent 27-year-old was dead.

 

Six

Sweeney (point to right) the 27 year old that actually committed a crime did not die in police custody nor was he arrested even-though his crime made it to trial and he was pleaded guilty, he did not serve one day in jail. He only received a  18 month suspended sentence and $5000 fine. 

Seven

the reason Mr Sweeney did not go to jail was because according to Jack Vandersteen “he would not last long in jail” Vendersteen continued on saying that “not many people are in jail who went to Haileybury” naming the well known private school that Sweeney went to. Going to a well known private school does not make Sweeney any less guilty.

Eigh

The death of Mr Briscoe went to court, it was certain that Police officers made errors but they were not charged with anything even though they were the result of an innocent man’s death.

This clearly shows how innocent people are treated just because of their “colour” (do talking marks with hands”

Australia is always trying to “stop racism” or give back to the aboriginals who are the natives of this lands, but year by year people seem to stop caring about them, If We are racist to natives of our own land then how are we supposed to accept others?

Ten

Racism should not be as serious as it is if people just got together and decided to stop the prejudice and the hatred they have for people that “look different” or “have a different skin colour”, or if they stopped for a minute and thought about how it feels to be basically be kicked out of your own native home land and be looked at like you don’t belong, all this racism and hatred would stop.

Eleven

Racism must be stopped, to achieve this we must educate ourselves and our children to learn to develop equality, compassion and sincerity. People are people and if one can be broader minded, and does not base other individuals on their skin color and accept them for who they are, it would be a significant step towards minimizing racism in Australia.
