me, them


A middle-class white woman, an academic from Oxford, told me that she was surprised when she went to Australia. She thought it would have a very crass culture.

I said, "That's a very colonial attitude."

Throughout the day she happily refered to other "primitive cultures" and also how much she liked travelling to them, seeing how they live, how simple things make them happy, how they keep things simple.
