I suppose this says that when any newcomers to Australia demonstrate that they [he/she] join in with what Australian society perceives to be 'Australian' they are wholeheartedly accepted. When they choose to live in a ghetto and not embrace Australian society, then they are rejected. Exactly the same thing that happens in every country of the world regardless of race, religion, skin colour or any other descriptor. Good on the African AFL players - they are crackers at the game, just like our own Aboriginal players and the high flying white Anglo-Saxons.
