Every culture is changed by who lives there and every population is changed by where they live.
Unless you are an Aborigine than your culture has already diluted another. I dare say that the Australians of Asian descent you worry about are far less disruptive of Australian culture than your culture has been of the Aborigine's.
You can look at foreign influences as diluting your culture or you can look at them as making it richer. The closest supermarket to my house is an Asian (mainly Korean) one. It is in a shopping center that is almost entirely owned by and caters to Asian-Americans. I'm quite happy about this; I can find things here that no other store has and they have better produce and beer selection than any other grocery store in town. Our neighborhood movie theater is Indian owned and shows typical Hollywood as well as Bollywood films. The three previous owners of the theater couldn't make a profit and went out of business so I'm happy that someone has found a way to make it profitable and keep it open. Where I grew up (rural Michigan) I never saw anyone of Asian, Indian or Middle Eastern descent my entire childhood except in books or on TV. Where I live now I see people of every color, culture, and religion. I prefer the later.
I am not others I am me, I am not racist not xenophobic, All i want is to be treated right when it comes to getting a job. Also ur immplying that asians and other forigners can get away with stuff like this when aussie must follow the rules and regulations. May I ask, are u Aussie? have u ever been to Aus?....If you are or have been to aus then u have the right to comment....its like if i go to thier country I must follow thier laws regulation. I will start a business in Korea and sure not all the rules and laws i like but i will have to follow them though i dnt agree with them all...but i really wanna open my business there so i accept them...and thats wht they should do...i never said they should not hire their own people, but all the saff should be able to speak enough english to be able to hire someone not frm thier own country, its like I am still studying Korean I am no where near perfect but i can speak and hold a decent convosation but when i go to korea i must speak korean inorder to start my business.
I've lived long enough to notice when any foreigner who comes to the US, and it could be that way in other countries as well, it takes 3 generations before their nationality is absorbed into a culture. And at the same time add to their new culture. Eventually, all races will become one race with a slight difference depending on the area where people live.
When I was in the army, 1960 -1962, in Germany, all the European countries had a distinct look in dress and habit. After 30 years there wasn't any difference in dress, a little in habit, but not much. Everyone looked American. In Japan people were so enamored with Americanism the only difference was their physical looks. What will happen in 50 years. We'll be surprised to see.
One should integrate into society and accept the beliefs and habits of others, but assimilation can't take place without integration. One can be forced into assimilation, is that right. No. When one integrates into together one has tolerance. Then assimilation takes place naturally. We are seeing that here in the US. By 2100AD, as a nation, we should be well assimilated as one race. That would include all whites, blacks, browns, yellows and reds, as one. What religion will be dominate, that is still a question. By all reports by 2050 most US'ers will be Muslim, with spanish sir names.
filletofspam- I never said anything bad bout asians other than say why must we abide my rules and regulations of owning a business where one is being u cannot, not hire someone cuz they are a particular race. which asians and most middle eastern and indians do. yet they wanna be in australia nad have the same benifits as us aussie. yet if us aussie say no to an asian or other race they say we are racist for not hiireing them....if they dont like the rules laws and regulations of aus then can go back to thier country. its not likle they wanna be part of aus anyway.
yes we should accpet other nations cultures and ideals but when is it to much?, when should we draw the line? I beleive alot of asian dont give a flying hoot about australia and its people, yet they wanna be treated like us aussie and want the same rights and privelages as we do, yet they jsut think as if they were in thier country. I know not all people or asians are like that but, they just care for thier own, not for us non asians and yet wanna be the same as us? how is that fair?
Is your fear of discrimination or is it general xenophobia? Do you really believe that your minorities discriminate against the majority more than the other way around?
haha oops i spelled that wrong *intergration
