On this episode we take on the idea that reverse “sexism” (against men) and reverse “racism” (against white people) are real things.

In our discussion of reverse “sexism” and “racism”, we cover Glastonbury Music Festival, Sad Grrrls Fest Melbourne, Becky’s and ‘Study Finds That White Privilege Makes Up For White Guilt’.

Also covered throughout the episode is: Celeste Liddle’s article ‘Fighting for Sovereignty and Treaties over Recognition’, which covers some Indigenous criticisms of Constitutional Recognition, and Katie promotes the app Carousell.

This time we’re joined by Nick’s cousin Emil Raji, who runs Sailboat Records and plays in the band A City Sorrow Built (and others). We discuss the colonial implications of the #boycottBali campaign, which was started in reaction to two Australian citizens, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, being executed in Bali for drug trafficking.

We mention the Australian Federal Police’s role in their execution, a Roy Morgan poll on Australian attitudes towards drug smugglers being executed, and tourism and exploitation. We also question the Australian government’s “concern” over human rights, when it has a horrible human rights record itself, as well as supporting other countries despite their human rights abuses, such as China and Saudi Arabia.

We also look into the racist Reclaim Australia movement and the Rally Against Racism counter-movement, starting with the article ‘Reclaim Australia Accidentally Reclaims 1930s Germany‘ by The Backburner on SBS Comedy. We discuss the article ‘Why Were Most of the Anti-Reclaim Australia Protestors White?’ by Sanmita Verma, protesting and privilege, and the importance of intersectionality and people of colour leading social movements. For more on Reclaim Australia and the Rallies Against Racism, check out episode 94.

Also covered throughout the episode is: why nationalism is ridiculous, as well as racism in the live export campaign and animal advocacy generally. You can hear more on this topic by listening to Javed’s talk ‘Class, Race and Veganism’, which we played on episode 54.
