Letter to The Editor - Their campaigning to protect their group is not in itself "supremacism"

To The Australian        You have prominently labelled six remarks of Senator Fraser Anning as "incendiary" (19/3), but, while some of them contain exaggeration and simplification, they don't seem as worthy of condemnation as you suggest. What is wrong with urging a popular vote on immigration? The currently widespread use of the term "white supremacism" deserves some critical scrutiny too. It is natural and reasonable for people generally to prefer to live among those who share their ethnicity; and white people have some grounds for fearing that their security in this respect is gradually being taken away from them. Their campaigning to protect their group is not in itself "supremacism".
  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
