Ebony;Jul1966, Vol. 21 Issue 9, p46
The article presents the author's comments on the White Australian Policy in Australia. According to the author, colored people in Australia are known as Aborigines, and steps are being taken to give full rights to these people. However, the author says that Australia officially denies that it has a White Australian Policy. The author says that after the election of the first Federal Parliament in 1901, political parties in Australia restricted immigration on the basis of race.
