Border Security, 24 and Underbelly tonight

It has been raining all week in Sydney, a bit miserable. You should stay home tonight as lots of good TV shows tonight.

At 7.30pm on Seven, new episodes of Border Security - Australia's Front Line is on. (to Don: that is the show where we once saw a white American traveller entering Australia and making a huge whine on being bag searched just because he's white and he's American.)

City Homicide starts at 8.30pm, then at 9.30pm, repeat episode of Bones.

Bones (Season 1 episode 15, Two Bodies in the Lab)

When Brennan decides to give online dating a try she ends up the target of a shooting at the local restaurant where she's meeting her date.

Then at 10.30pm, new episode of season 7's 24 is on (hour 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM). At same time, Channel Nine airs double episode of the exciting Aussie drama Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities.

The controversial fat kid episode of Desperate Housewives is on tomorrow night at the usual time.

The same show where we have seen Asians, blacks and any number of citizens of different countries doing exactly the same thing. ***************************

Many of these proved to be drug smugglers, and some, criminals in their own countries.
Many others were cleared and entered Australia on the correct Visa.

I assume you watched tonight's Border Security. It is without a doubt that Customs enjoy targeting innocent Asian-apparent tourists. A female tourist from Hong Kong was unfairly bag-searched, frisk-searched and even escorted to a private interview room for further questioning. She did not make a big fuss like the white American.

Many others were cleared and entered Australia on the correct Visa.

White Americans usually receive first class treatment at the Customs before entering. While Asian-apparent or any non-white tourists have very high chance of being humiliated in public.

Of course, the Customs must have strong reason to doubt any white American visitors. For the record, that white American tourist was not taken to a private interview room at all.

It's sad when a seemingly harmless person gets the full treatment.
Perhaps staff need a bit more education by the CIA spooks.
The old white guy took it very well and he was cleared after much ado!
I think it's time you got down off your high horse of indignation and got on with your life, seeing nothing like this has ever happened to you!

The fact remains: They always pay more attentions to non-white visitors.
