Who Are These Idiots That Think If You Are Asian You Are Not An Aussie?

Seriously who are these people that think that to be Australia you have to be white? Some oeople in twitter land have taken to the site to wonder why an Asian should be able to win an Australian reality TV show.

Yep they think it is wrong that Dami Im won. These people might want to take a geography lesson and realise we live closer to Asia then any other continent or stay clear of any metropolitan cities if they are so affronted by this. Thankfully people on Twitter bitch slammed them back and hopefully put them back in their racist box.

Full story

The fact that Dami won is a positive thing as after the Australia’s Top Model Final when Duckie and Shanali were beaten Melissa there were questions raised about whether race had been an issue.  Full story SMH.

These people are backward in the extreme. It’s a big world now and next week people and horses from all over the world will compete for the Melbourne Cup. Foreign jockeys and horses have got the chocolates a few times now.

But there will always be people ,dead from the arse up , who don’t get it.

I knew some idiots will complaints about DAMI winning Xfactor and those that will complaints if Dami didn’t win. Just asked those idiots to get a life. She was the best and a deserving winner.

Well there goes one of the contentions of the Things Bogans Like website (#145 – Hot Asian Chicks*)…

Its very sad, but I think Dami will be having the last laugh as her pop career takes off and those losers will always be losers

That’a a shame that some people would say that Dami is not deserving of the win just for being Asian, hopefully they are in the minority as everyone on the show were genuinely happy for her and excited by her win.

Sad ignorant idiots. Some of us got slammed by one of them on a thread here last night. :(

Because of a handful of idiots, our whole nation is known as racists. If they dont like who won then why cant they just shut the hell up about it. No one wants 2 know their opinion. #idiots

As I say to people that bang on about all the different colors coming in- ‘the first and true people of this land are the aborigines’ generally gets met with silence. Cannot believe the massive sense of entitlement some 2nd or third gens feel here, I have english/german/american mum and italian/moari/chinese/scottish dad so was called bitzer, bunga, greasywog, than honky or chinger new names for new schools all 23 of them, so I say Congrats Dani, go make a million babe! Australia will claim her as one of our own if she goes international, presiding? over racism- australias love for an underdog! If that makes any sense :-/ or as bdd puts it dead from the arse up- niiiccee!

I wonder how many of these simpletons would have the courage of their convictions, if they’re ever in need of serious medical intervention from a neurosurgeon, heart specialist etc. – who happens to be Asian descent.

This doesn’t even deserve the time of day.. Utterly ridiculous.. Anyone regardless of their ethnicity deserves to compete in and win the show in the country they live in and love! Our country is so great because of our multiculturalism.

Wow Ammo, you have an impressive league of nations heritage! I just have bland English/Irish/Scottish and the red hair to go with it!

What annoys me also is that some people complain that English is not even Dami’s first language. Well she was 8 YEARS OLD when she moved to Australia!!! Well she might be fluent in another language but English is surely the language that is using most. As everyone said there will always be idiots around. Given the support that she got so far Dami knows that the number of people that appreciate her talent by far outweighs a few idiots who chose to mix enthical background into enterntaiment.

I followed the xFactor hashtag when watching the show for pretty much the whole season because it was genuinely hilarious at times (and sometimes more entertaining than the show!). Not once did I see a tweet referring to Dami’s ethnicity or nationality, so I am hoping that these pathetic excuses for humans are the exception rather than widespread.
She seems to be a genuinely talented, lovely young woman and I hope that she isn’t aware of these puerile and offensive remarks. I wish her all the best.

I wonder if these people hada problem with Reece Mastin, who was born in England and isn’t half the singer that Dami is, winning two years ago?
