You couldn't be more wrong - you've obviously have been misinformed:
See? This is a University study of attitudes people already exhibit, not a government edict.The University of Western Australia has released a survey which claims motorists who display the national flag to mark Australia Day celebrations on Thursday are likely be "more racist" than drivers who do not.
Sociologist and anthropologist Professor Farida Fozdar and a team of assistants surveyed 513 people at the Australia Day fireworks on Perth's Swan River foreshore last year to find out whether there was a link between car flag flying and racist attitudes.
Of the 102 people surveyed who attached a flag to their cars on the national holiday, 43 per cent agreed with a statement that the "White Australia" policy - which prevented non-Europeans from migrating to the country until after World War II -- had "saved Australia from many problems experienced by other countries".
Professor Fozdar said only 25 per cent of people who did not fly Australia car flags agreed.
