This video was about how Malcolm Turnbull wanted to change the Racial Discrimination [section 18C]

1.Racism is a big problem in the world.

2.Racism is where someone is mean about someone else’s race or skin color . 

3.Because of Racism aboriginals weren’t counted as citizens until 1960.

4.In 1960 there was a white Australian policy which stopped Asians and many other countries to come to Australia.

5.In 1960 the Aboriginals had a protest to stop being treated badly. 

 6.In 1995 a new part was added to the Racial Discrimination  it was section 18C  It made it illegal to offend, insult or humiliate someone because of their race. 

7.Right now it is illegal to treat someone bad because of their race.

8.This year Malcolm Turnbull wants to scratch the words offend, insult and humiliate and replace them with the word harass. But many don’t agree as it might make people think it is ok to be hurt someone because of  their  race.

Why did Malcolm Turnbull want to change 18C in the first place?

What would be the penalty for being racist? 

Racism affects lots of kids and many don’t know what to do about it.
