One thing that I abhor more than anything else is racism. Here in Australia we all like to think that racism does not exist anymore, but as the rise of Pauline Hanson showed in the 1990s and early 2000s, that isn’t necessarily true. I know that we Aussies don’t like political correctness, but there are also still some of us also think that we should be allowed to use racial slurs to describe those who do not have white skin. This all brings me to this advertisement which I found on Danny Boy’s blog.

This brand of licorice apparently lasted up until the mid-1960s, but fortunately no longer exists. This perfectly illustrates how unenlightened we were just 40 years ago.
