I had never heard of the Sydney Based Ethics Centre until in what I consider a bit of irony the former Essendon Coach James Hird did his question and answer session there a few weeks ago.
Last Friday I again heard of the Ethics Centre as they released a video of a speech by journalist Stan Grant.This was part of a debate about whether Australia is really a multicultural safe haven of equal opportunity? Or is racism more prevalent than ever before?
This debate was held during the lat part of 2015 and I wish this is how I first heard of the Ethics Centre. It is one of the most powerful speeches I have heard on racism in Australia. I am not going to paraphrase his comments. You can read about it at the Guardian.
But I do urge you to listen to a magnificent 9 minute speech from Wiradjuri man Stan Grant.
