Since you're there, what's you take on it?
australia has a stern immigration policy on illegal entries yes.
but on the otherside we have been handing out permanent residency like swap cards to students (mainly indian) that come here to study in areas that are needed like hairdressers and chefs.
i think what flogtime25 was referring to was more the colonial treatment of aborigines and subsequent treatment over the years.
apart from that, i dont see australia as any more/less racist than any ther country i have been to.
