What it is to be un-australian

Since Australia day has just passed i think this topic is quite appropriate to discuss.

I think of Australins as easy going people, with an easy going lifestyle and since we are known for being multicultural country then i would think its fair to say that being racist would be un-Australian. Being multiculral is one of the main things we are known for, besides football of course. I do think Australia is a very sport country as well, but not everyone plays sport and i wouldn’t say that its un-Australian to not play a sport.

Soo many different races come to our country because they feel that they will be accepted here and it would just be a better place to live, i think we need to up hold our reputation and stay the multicultural country, because it has made us what we are today.
