We live in one of the most ethnically diverse as well as one of the most peaceful places on earth: whether it stays that way is up to us. Overseas and closer to home, racial intolerance is on the rise. 1 in 3 complaints to the Human Rights Commission are about racial discrimination but we know most people never complain.
