1RACISM STATEAnswer to question 1Monday, August 7, 2017, 6.30 am.The word “everyday racism” includes certain discriminations by way of ignorance ordifferent treatment. In the words of Anne Barnes, this types of racism works as virusregarding those persons who are affected by it. These types of racism reflect from the humanbehaviour and the affected persons are facing gross mental dilemma regarding the same.Professor Alvin Alvarez has termed the everyday racism as the racial micro-aggressions(Royer, 2014).I arrived at Kimberley, a place nearby Western Australia. The place is well known for itsaboriginal origins. I wanted to explore myself in the sphere of everyday racism and I thoughtthat it could not be possible without experienced the same practically. The aboriginals arefacing the everyday racism and I wanted to explore the reason of it, as they are the oldest partof the continent of Australia (Malaspinas et al., 2016). However, I reached at the border ofthat place and when I entered into it, I felt there are certain limitations in this place. Therewas a little chance to interact with the people and I was tired of that (Christen, 2015). Isomehow managed to communicate with a person there and he told me about the problemwith the indigenous people here.Tuesday, August 8, 2017, 10.30 am.I had stayed at a motel somewhere in the locality. I had an interaction with thereceptionist of the motel, Barnes, on the next day regarding the main reasons for the racialdiscriminations. The first point that are come up from the discussion was that the stereotypementality of the so-called white colour citizens (Nelson et al., 2015). Aboriginals are the

As per the report of the Western Sydney University, almost 25% of aboriginalpersons are facing everyday racism comparative to other classes of the Australian society(Correa-Velez et al., 2017). Their facial structure is different from the other classes of peopleand as per the western mentality; they are looking as the dinosaurs. The aboriginals areviolated for their way of living and customs they are performed.The racial problems of Australia are connected to its old origin and thegovernmental negligence is provoking the matter. As per the report, there has been an inter-ethnic relation existed in Australia. there are a number of Acts are enacted to stop this racismincluding racial Discrimination Act 1975, Racial Hatred Act 1995, Human Rights and EqualOpportunity Commission Act 1986. In spite of all these legislations, the aboriginal personsare facing everyday racism in academic sectors and other steps of the society (Came,McCreanor & Simpson, 2017). According to a census, the aboriginals are facing behaviouraldiscrimination in case of transportation and the annual discrimination rate regarding the sameis almost 60%.I had interacted with the Pintupi tribes and communicated with a descent of that tribewho had revealed that the main problem behind the discrimination is the lack of Englishlanguage among the tribes. While staying in Queensland, I had certain interaction with KatieWest, an indigenous origin who had expressed her experiences in the University and in thehostel she used to stay before. It had been told by her that the warden of the hostel told hernot to use earphone publicly. However, when some white coloured residential are using thesame, he did not protest it. The story of Katie can be seen everywhere in different contents ofAustralia. The report by the Sydney University revealed the fact that more than 6000aboriginal people are humiliating every year.
