Only when I have a really good tan. Pale skin usually looks pasty and less attractive to me.

I was born in Australia in 1980 to parents who migrated here in 1972. Only in the last maybe 5 years have I really felt racism and been the target for name-calling about my skin colour. We've gone backwards. I am sure it's because our cities are busier, our roads are fuller. I'd prefer it if I had white skin. It hurts to be judged by your colour, as opposed to the kind of person you are.

I was born in Australia and in my short life I have seen a noticable difference in the way people react to difference and change in people in society. Skin colour shouldn't matter, it's just a colour but perhaps some people have different views becaue of their racial background.

We are happy about our skin colour and dont wish to change it. We never get abused or made fun of due to our skins pigment so why would we want to change it?

I found this video quite sad, because many people are discriminated against just because of their looks, rather than their identities. I also found ti quite factal, as many Australians were not born in Australia.

We should all be proud of our skin colour as it shows cultural diversity throughout the country. There is nothing wrong with people with differences. Imagine a world where everyone was te same. Wouldn't it be extremely boring? If you think about it, no one is the same. So should be discriminate against people who are different? It's the same concept with people with different appearences.

We should all be proud of our nationality because it is apart of all our identies. Being ashamed of your skin colour wsill tear down our self confidence.

I am proud of my background and who I am.

No because I think that your nationality is apart of who you are and you should be proud to come from where you do come from.

we believe that we should be proud of our culture and skin colour and not be ashamed whether your dark skined or lighter skin, everyone is equal.
