Or, at least, that seems to be the opinion of Senator Cory Bernardi in this report from the ABC.
I’m not sure exactly what it is about alternative, non-predatory lending practices that Sen. Bernardi finds so offensive. I haven’t looked in much detail, but so far I have seen nothing discriminatory or sexist about the loans. If I have missed anything please inform me.
We should call it what it is: Sen. Bernardi doesn’t think that Australian laws should be changed to allow non-mainstream cultures to co-exist in our society, within the Human Rights standards that we expect. This is racism.
