    Let’s say, for a moment, that I am the police chief and prime minister of Australia and I declare that every crime in Melbourne is racist in nature. HOW DOES THAT HELP YOU? There **IS** a fundamental underlying aspect, in my opinion, to the attacks on Indians here, but it isn’t as simple as racism in nature.
