After research revealed 97 % of Australia’s CEO’s have European heritage, our Race Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane described these as being; “dismal statistics for a society that prides itself on its multiculturalism. They challenge our egalitarian self-image. And they challenge our future prosperity as a nation.”
Soutphommasane also laments that occupants of Australia’s top positions are not as diverse as the broader Australian community.
But do we really believe that ideals of egalitarianism are at the heart of his case?
For instance, how outraged is Soutphommasane that Aboriginals far outnumber other groups as a proportion of AFL players? Is he upset that the majority of teachers are women? And in the name of egalitarianism, would Soutphommasane support a group that openly advocated for white Australians, as is allowed for every other group?
Contrary to his thinly veiled guise, Soutphommasane has a problem with whites prevailing in any area.
For if he was genuine in discovering why Australia’s top CEO’s are largely white, he could consider IQ gaps between groups, and that changes in leadership are naturally downstream from broader cultural change. Further, he might concede that as white Australians have been in this country longer, have established greater connections and generally understand our business world, culture and language better, they are comparatively advantaged to freshly arrived migrants. And he could observe the link between groups which were defining and influential in creating our country, and those in positions of prominence today, just as how the Japanese are ascendant in Japan, and how Nigerians are ascendant in Nigeria.
But instead, Soutphommasane is only interested in spreading anti white tropes.
Furthermore, as Soutphomassane is of Asian descent, there is a larger societal hypocrisy worth considering.
Whenever whites dare express opinion on people of colour matters, they are instantly condemned as racist, privileged oppressors, who ought shut up due to a lack of lived experiences.
If this is supposed to be a consistent metric, Tim Soutphommasane should likewise refrain from portraying Australia’s inherently European nature as nothing more than an egalitarian, multicultural dumping ground. It is obvious this exorbitantly overpaid, anti white, foreign born bureaucrat, has zero respect for this country’s founding stock, which created his modern, luxurious amenities. Thus by the Left’s own logic, he should cease his whining and distortion of Australian identity.
