Rowena tells the story of her Eurasian son's experience of growing up in Australia and the racism he has encountered. This story provides a glimpse into how some people judge others by their appearance ' in this case, racial appearance. The story raises issues surrounding the notion of 'right' to a place and the exclusion of those who do not conform to the in-group's sense of identity.

Thank you for your story. So much an Australian story if I was to hear any, yours is typical (yet Tall poppy is common)...the achievement is amazing. Thank you for sharing.
