Assignment Help on Racism in Australia – Sociology Assignment

Case Study:

According to Carey et al, (2017), the expression of racism has developed from an early period. The difference between modern and ancient racism is that the modern racism is more open and diverse than old-fashioned racism which involves the exclusion of minority groups in the society and discrimination based on race, caste, religion etc. I agree with the opinion of Carey that the perception of racism is changed but it is still prevalent in the society.

For example, there are several instances where the ethnicity of the Asians have been questioned in the workplaces. This leads to the worldwide concept of the people that Australia is a comfortably Racist country and Racism is endorsed heavily in this country. However, different government personnel have justified their works and commented on that Australian Community is free from Racism.
