Reconciliation Week & Racism

The recently concluded Reconciliation Week in Australia turned out to be quite a week.

I was very impressed by the dignified and articulate way Aboriginal sportspeople addressed the issue of subtle racism, which exists in all of our communities.

It’s really important for all of us, when telling jokes about other people and other races, to put ourselves in the shoes of the person being joked about.

If the person you’re joking about doesn’t think it’s funny, it’s not funny.
