As I said above,
"Sadly, there's still a long way to go."
A Melbourne taxi driver has been accused of being racist for refusing to pick up award-winning indigenous singer Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-12-05/t ... ul/4409100
The blind performer had finished a concert at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda last night and was guided to a taxi waiting at the side stage door.
Mr Yunupingu's manager, Mark Gross says, the driver looked at him, said no, then locked his car and drove off.
"Like most Aboriginal people that we've worked with they've experienced these things before and they're less shocked than we are," he said.
"Every artist that we've worked has experienced racism and you just sit there absolutely heart-broken for them.
"He loves Melbourne and he just takes that sort of stuff in his stride which he shouldn't have to do."
