Misuse of ‘ethnic’
The West Australian published an excellent letter by the African writer of Delusions of ethnicity (Letters, 9/11).
All Australians are “ethnic” in that we all belong to a particulate race or cultural group. African people are just people in Africa.
It is only when they emigrate to a predominantly white country that they become “black people”.
“Ethnic” should not be used as a divisive label. We are all just people.
