The Protocols of the Elders of Australia

Two examples demonstrating how racism looks like in modern day Australia.
The first one was at work, a good few months ago. Several of us had a bit of a chat, when this guy put in his winning argument: "Every one of the big companies around the world has a Jew in control at the top".
I sarcastically added: "Yeah, like Microsoft", and the guy - himself a member of a minority in Australia - answered back in absolute seriousness:
"I didn't know Bill Gates was Jewish".
The second example took place in the Australian Senate, where a member of the Liberal party (which is just ever so liberal) argued the following during a discussion on who is the rightful authority to approve a drug used amongst others uses for abortion purposes:
Australia has around 100,000 abortions per year. Over the course of 50 years, we will be losing 5 million Australians. This puts us in the risk of becoming a Muslim state.
