Racism within Australia is only perpetuated when we are shown fragmented parts of the truth. We shouldn’t be striving for ‘good stories’ that continue to fear-monger attitudes that already exist. But reporting honestly and without prejudice. This continues to be more difficult as the government’s influence over commercial stations grows and the cuts to public broadcasting rise. Studying media, and making my own films, I know the power of the edit. With godly powers, you have the power to make someone say anything. This is a reminder to everyone to think about what we aren’t being shown rather than what we are.
