Thanks for sharing this Jenny, and very well put together my friend.
We cop similar criticisms Down Under. The “say no to immigration”, that immigrants are “sucking our social welfare system dry”, that “they’re stealing all our jobs,” etc, etc. All stemming from self-righteous bigotry, and forgetting that the bulk of the critics are almost all English/UK descendants — and more importantly, forgetting about the “true Australians”, the beautiful indigenous people of our great Southern Land.
We’re multicultural when it suits an agenda. Social media tells a different story.
Albeit, we all need one another, and as cliched as it is, we all feel the same, we all love the same, we all bleed red… 🙏
