|My opinion on the Article’s comments.||Many Australians have been offended by Nazeem Hussain’s “Living Brown” TV show. This for many is because they feel uncomfortable when they find themselves being critiqued or being shown to be a racist by the shows skits. Many may find they have made similar assumptions to what is being highlighted in the show, this can have the viewer feel uneasy and guilty. Though this is the reason for Nazeem creating the show, to highlight to Australians how assumption they have made are wrong so that they can learn from their mistakes.|
|Quotes|| “He’s exposing a binary world where there’s whiteness, and then otherness. Where white people are individuals and non-white people (a singular group) are not.””(Muslims) we were outsiders, and should behave as such. We were not, to borrow from Michael Smith again, “real Australians”. We should know our place. We are welcome, but only as supplicants, celebrating the nation’s unblemished virtue.”
““ethnic” comedy in Australia has hitherto been about the parading of stereotypes for comfortable, mainstream consumption.”
