Racism: There is still hope

It’s nice to see that racism is not completely dead in Australia.

Here is a photo I took today of a shop called Presents at Southland Shopping Centre in Cheltenham, Victoria:

And now for a dramatic close-up:

Some may argue that what is considered racist in other parts of the world may not necessarily be treated the same in Australia (remember this?). But even still, there are very few good arguments for using this as your mascot compared to the negatives.
