Coups and Racism

Another post appeared on resistfrankscoup blog today, exploring racism and this coup. Read more here: http://resistfrankscoup.blogspot.com/2007/04/coup-myth.html

It appears from the comments on that post, that racism continues to rear it's ugly head. Most comments seemed to be hinting at violence against the Indians once the resistance has triumphed. Scary prospect. What hits home is the realisation, that no matter how hard the Indians try, acceptance as equal citizens of this country will perhaps never happen. Indians have suddenly become immigrants without root once again and I guess it's the reason why most who could are finding a way out. This will continue...I am afraid.

But racists (on all sides) and Fijian ultra nationalists have always existed. A sad aspect of being in this country.
