I had to re-read this article a couple times to make sure I was understanding it correctly:
“Race Discrimination Commissioner Tom Calma wants the burden of proof in cases of racial discrimination to fall on the alleged offender, instead of the person making the complaint.”
No more innocence until proven guilty?
“Mr Calma said Australia’s laws made it difficult to prove there had been discrimination.”
Well then, let’s make it easier by eliminating the need for proof entirely. Unless you want to prove your innocence, that is.
