N.E.A: Racism, the email edition.

Below is an email exchange between myself and a friend of mine during work last week.

Names have obviously been changed.

It’s a she.  long story. Telling me all about how she’s not racist against Aboriginal people but that the one thing she learned from the cultural awareness training course was that ‘they’ want their culture and ‘our’ rights and then talked at me for about 10mins straight – giving me all these stupid stereotypes that if you read one book or one decent article – you know are false. Oh, it was gross – whenever I’d offer counter-arguments – she’d come up with some other racist stereotype.

 

then she asks me ‘I spose now, you think I’m a racist”

 

and I go “yeah, a little”.

nothing.  we are being awkwardly and consciously over-polite to one another.
