Brogden goes as he should

The state Liberal leader in NSW, John Brogden, has resigned amongst a scandal over his comments about Bob Carr's wife who has an asian background. He called her a "mail order bride" which is quite a nasty and racist thing to say. And thus it is right that he goes.

In last few weeks here in Australia, there has been some discussion about people of different backgrounds intergrating into the community. One thing that is going to occur if this does take place is people are going to marry and have children with other people who have different ethinic background. Therefore people like Brogden are going to have to realise sometime soon that people in mixed marriages are not all "mail order brides". Personally, I could not think of a better way of understanding people of different backgrounds that to form relationships with them.
