    Having now lived in Aus, in Sydney for nearly 10 years, I can say I am afraid of some Lebanese people specially around Paramatta. They just seem to be very aggressive in nature and as I am a pretty laid back, peace loving sorta fella they get me worried. Whenever I see some jacked up guys driving a dropped car in a car park I make sure they get their parking spot.

    Vitalogy,the parking thing is normal.
    In Wollongong,which is 200 thou,when I saw a gang of boys,no matter what colour,I would cross the street as to not cross their path.
    I think its just looking out for yourself.Self preservation.
    Lucky we have few if at all any gangs in Coota.
    On Lebanese,I found the same with Moaris at school,generally they liked to fight and I was going to say my P's and Q's to them,and respect who they were.BTW this was when I was in Brisbane,and it was a westy kind of school.

    well yea, it's literally racist, but it's not the same as the subtle, subconscious bias and stereotyping that happens in the western world. It's more open and out there, and as such seems easier to deal with in a way. You know why they're racist, you know what you can do to address it, and once you have they're not racist anymore. I don't think you can do that in the Western world because the reasons that drive their racism aren't as well defined, or as openly spoken about. It's more hidden, nuanced, complicated, unclear. You aren't really sure what it is you got to say and do before they stop looking at you as being different from them. And to me, that's a lot harder to deal with.

    I found this open racism quite strange..I think it was the first time I've experienced anything that to be honest. But the more I lived there I more I learned that most Singaporean Chinese are generally racist towards the Indians and look down on them due to the lower level of their economic circumstances..Yet somehow when they are doing well they all get along.
    I hear you, vitalogy83. CW is very cosmopolitan, but noted poster nightprowler10 still gets **** on for being Sri Lankan.

My other two colleagues are Italian and Thai and they are swell as well. Maybe I need to spend more time here to see any of that infamous aussie racism. But until now, it has been a great place to live in.
    Iím glad youíve had a positive experience so far mate.

    Or maybe it has been subtle and has all flown over my head.

    Nah, hated being away from home within India in other states because I don't know the hindi language. This is really great given that I can communicate with everyone much better.
