Racism is a very big issue. I think most people say things without realising
they are being racist. This doesn't excuse their behaviour but most people
don't think before they say things. One line in Oodgeroo's poems says
"Black tribe, yellow tribe, red, white or brown" this means that there are

because there are always going to be different races in Australia and
no-one can change it; so why don't people just live their own life and stop

saying that they shouldforget about the past and get on with the future.

are towards everyone even other white people and every other race is
racist towards the white people it just goes on. Oodgeroo is expressing her
feeling about racism but the way she is doing it she is bein…
