I can't help but wonder if you're saying that because you're white and/or brainwashed. If racism exists at all in Australia then it's on all the people, because it's a social issue, and it must not beignored. We're an overpopulated social species. I think racism is the greatest evil of humanity. We have to see all people as family. I mainly choose my battles at home, in my own country, but it's really glaring to see that it's a problem all over the world. No justice no peace. That's not a war cry. It means in a just and equal world that peace is possible.
I'm not sure I'm following you by saying that I'm brainwashed. About what? What I'm saying to you is that if you're making a point about racism, starting off with a negative personal observation, one that you believe speaks for an entire population of Australians, makes you look fairly ignorant.

Couldn't the same be said about America? Or the UK? Or several other western nations? Couldn't you take that sentence structure and replace a few words to make a sentence that would be more visibly considered as racist? For example:
"Everything I've heard and read [about the black people in Ferguson is that] they have a terrible track record of [obeying the law], which they seem to shrug off with an air of [black entitlement]."
Obviously an arrogant statement, likely to offend people if I were saying it seriously (which, just to be perfectly clear, is 100% not my genuine opinion and I am only using it to illustrate a point). But it seems it's easier to see that statement as racist since it's towards a minority group rather than a majority group with power.
Anyway, this is all a little off topic. As far as the OP going into a fit of rage over homophobia, that's probably not a good idea, and also not healthy. It's natural for it to upset you, but perhaps you need some counseling to control your emotions.
