How do you define racism and bullying? The ABC have hired former Greens candidate, Osman Faruqi, to serve as deputy editor of a new lifestyle section on the taxpayer funded, public broadcaster’s website.
ABC spokesman told The Australian, Mr Faruqi, the son of Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi, will be included in ‘a new digital storytelling project created to reach new audiences in an innovative and engaging way.’
If you’re not familiar with Faruqi, he Tweets like a male (assuming) Yassmin Abdel-Magied. As you read from his feed, just replace “white” with “black” and ask yourself, would that be considered racist?
Black people don’t belong in Australia… white skin is objectively better… What if every episode of Q and A had no black people… Black people are getting f–ked… What’s with all black people looking the same when they get old… I’ll be forced to disavow my tweets making fun of black people.
What if… every episode of #qanda had no white people.

I love debates about sunscreen. Just more evidence that white people don't belong in Australia.

Dear white people who have seen 'Get Out': how did you feel after watching the film? Enormously guilty? Evil?

Perpetuating myths, making comfortable white people feel good about themselves, ignoring the reality. We need some more PoC critics goddamn.

The only positive way to look at this: The number of white people desperate to wear blackface shows darker skin is objectively better.

White people who rap the n-word at gigs should be banned from buying concert tickets. Free up tickets for people who aren’t idiots.

Get back to me when the UN finds white people have no "historic title" over all the shit they colonised and stole.

Who knows though, maybe in 20 years when I’m running for leader of the Nationals I’ll be forced to disavow my tweets making fun of white people.

The only thing white people will express solidarity for is other white people when they become the victims of confected drama hey.
