New Matilda tackles “the smoking gun of institutionalized racism “

23rd Dec 2014

A Walkley Award winning investigative journalist says that in 2014 there was growing acceptance within Australia that racism in this country is a problem… and that it is no longer acceptable.

Chris Graham … owner/ editor of online news site New Matilda.says the story about Sydney University Professor Barry Spurr… who resigned from his job at Sydney University over a series of racist emails had been a good win in the fight against racism.

Describing Professor Spurr in an editorial as “the smoking gun of institutionalized racism’ Mr Graham says Professor Spurr’s involvement as an advisor to the national school curriculum review meant the last chapter of the story may not have been written.
