Signs That Your Friend May Be A Racist

When he says, 'Let's go hit the slopes this weekend.' And he's not talking about skiing.

Is that the Australian equivalent of "hunting coons?"

Hitting the slopes (Asian people)? Don't know. Giles - my new housemate - mentioned that they were going to the mountains for skiing/ snow boarding and used this innocuous phrase and an image popped into my head where he and his friends bashed groups of guys from South East Asia.

FYI- We don't "hunt coons" here in Melbourne. My guess is this is the sort of thing they do in the Northern Territory or Tasmania. No, here in Melbourne we treat Aboriginal folk in a fair and evenhanded manner (i.e. we don't give them jobs, look down upon them from our Ivory Tower with contempt, complain about their smell, general appearance, etc and give them the occasional small change so they can buy liquids usually used as fuel for camping stoves as a cheap alcoholic beverage)

Perhaps you could open up aboriginal lands to trophy hunting. A human, or subhuman head would look good mounted next to those of zebra, lions, and elk. You can even make rockstar-like leather pants out of their tough hides. Can't do that here in the US- too many laws that fine you for wearing human skin. It's a luxury no longer allowed since the 60s. And Mexican hide is considered second rate.
