thanks for this... I haven't been reading newspapers the past week so it's news to me. One thing though, Toowoomba is in Queensland and Balga is in Western Australia. If you look at a map of Australia you'll see we are a h-u-g-e continent and these places are very far apart. And very different. On a positive note, most people feel this way: "Ms Maasakker said the Sudanese had added another dimension to Toowoomba, and made the town more cosmopolitan." and also this way...

Thanks so much for the info and suggestions. Magic Island sounds nice. I'm glad you mentioned the Polynesian cultural Centre, coz I noticed it in the guide books.

Peace.... I believe that the black community has witnessed the end of a very long era which was dominated by a "leader/follower" model. In this modern age of super information it is practically impossible for any person to withstand the scrutiny which comes with leadership. If there is any dirt on you, even if it is buried deep in the recesses of a hidden closet, it will come out to destroy any leader raised to the position of "Black Messiah". I do not think that we are lacking quantity, or...

It seems like Indo-European is just European by another name. When you look at the "Language Map", it is "Indo-European" until it becomes "Indo-Iranian." So, it would appear the report is saying Mr. Joseph is European, Native American, and Asian. Mr. Joseph has a mother who has lived all of her life as an African American. There is no reference to his father. America's system of naming ignores the nationality of "Native Americans" as is the case for Americans of unknown African ancestry.

Faheem, the reality is that the numeric minority will always live under the dictatorship of the numeric majority, especially when the interest of the or a numeric minority is significantly different in degree or kind from the numeric majority, in a democracy.

She was willing to tak with me for a short while, but after she found out that I disagreed with her she demanded to know my race and gender--which would have been easy to discover if she'd only been patient and listening instead of demanding a certain kind of answer right-this-minute.
