Australia considers scrapping anti-racist law

Politicians debate repealing law which criminalises insults that are based on race or ethnicity.

    The Australian government has been debating scrapping a law that makes it illegal to insult a person because of their race or ethnicity.

    The proposals have been a cause of concern for Australian Muslims, including one artist who has used discrimination as the basis for his work.
