It seems that Australia has just joined Canada in enabling the “anti-Discrimination” star-chamber witch hunts of the Human Rights Commission tribunals – “quasi” (anti-)legal, “extra” – as in entirely outside the legal system – judicial boards of unqualified and prejudiced identity-politicking victimology-selling special interest groups to lord it over the rest of the helpless populace.
Enabling “Guilty Until (Never) Proven Innocent” (reverse onus of proof) measures is a CRIME in itself! It’s forcing people to defend the conceptually and philosophically impossible – to prove a negative!
Enabling the false right to not be offended by the often painful truth only enshrines the notion of criminal negligence into “law:” that one has the right to remain ignorantly, irresponsibly wrong, rather than having the responsibility to become right!
The nannystate communist’s criminal group-might-made-right false right not to fail (inflicting a forced equality of outcome, as opposed to enabling equality of opportunity) robs everyone of their real right to try to improve them selves!
It legalizes prejudicial slander – the notion that one can accuse others without a shred of proof! So it really only does the exact opposite of what it purportedly intended to do!
It also breaks the one principle all civilization, trust and progress is built on: The Golden Rule of Law (simplified as where everyone agrees To Not Attack First)! This means even the largest group, the state, has no right to attack it’s individual citizen’s human rights first, by falsely pre-judging them guilty until proven innocent. Yet they’re trying it anyway!
As the prime example of this nonsense, it’s clear that the muslim ideology is all about hate, revenge, intolerance, violence and lying to gain advantage over your enemy – it’s all about might-makes-right extortion, aka CRIME.
So why does it now always seem to be “illegal” to accuse these moslem criminals of their crimes, if doing so might hurt their feelings (and so “make” them commit even more crimes!)?
Well, it’s obviously simply because Liberals are racists – they always assume that ONLY White, Western people (including, of course, the Jews in Israel,) are INTELLIGENT enough to be judged guilty of being truly evil, while all their pet “People Of Colour” (including, of course, the “swarthy palestinians,”) just can’t help being violent animals, the poor oppressed little dears, so they’ll always indulge their crimes, much as one ignores the new puppy as it pees on the rugs.

I’d also like to note that “reverse” racism is still racism!
If – as liberals claim – “all indoctrinating cultures are the exact same” as in the software – or nurture effects – having only a negligible influence on their respective populations’ behaviours, then the reason all the islamic countries are at the exact bottom of all the world’s developmental indexes must be – nature or hardware (or “race”) after all!
Identity politics is evil because it’s only divisive victimology-selling, slanderous group-might-makes-right extortion; it’s CRIME.
The problem is that liberals hate personal responsibility, so the easiest way they’ve found to avoid it, is by selling endless group-rights victimology scenarios instead. That way the cowards can pretend to be champions without accusing any individual criminals of their crimes!
Because Whites are actually in a minority worldwide, to pretend they’re not in order to foment disproportinal immigration into those areas where they happen to predominate, is actually good evidence for racist liberal TREASON and attempted demographic genoicide:

WikiAnswers, citing the USAID Population Reference Bureau’s 2006 World Population Data Sheet (warning: PDF), gives these “major-race” figures: Asian 60.6%, Black 14.1%, White 16.7%, Latino 8.5% (and I do question Latino as a separate race, and wonder what happened to Amerinds, Polynesians, Khoisan, etc.). That’s probably as good a “grouper” response as is available.
At the other extreme, the CIA World Factbook’s online data gives detailed ethnic breakdowns for every country – the data are reliable and extremely detailed.
But somehow Egyptians (and other Arabs, whom geneticists classify as ‘Caucasians,’ simply because they once originated in the Caucasus mountains) now presumably come under white, while the paler Afghans an Russians are a different race known as Asian, and are lumped with the Chinese and Indonesians.
“Asian” as a category makes no sense even according to traditional racial categories. About 2.1 billion people, or 33% of the global population, are East and Southeast Asian, who would traditionally be classified as “Mongoloid.” Most of the rest, those of the Indian Subcontinent, as well as Iranians, Turks, Arabs, etc, would under traditional schemes be classified as Caucasians (although they would generally also be considered “non-white”). “Latino” as you observe is not a racial category at all. Most of the population of Central and South America are racially mixed, the majority being mestizo – a mixture of European (Caucasian, including the genetic Arabs from Spain’s 780 years of Submission and enslavement to islam,) and Amerindian (really only some displaced Chinese who are usually considered “Mongoloid”). There are millions of pure or nearly pure Amerinds, but their numbers are far exceeded by the mixed population. Of course many Latin Americans are Caucasian (most of Argentina and Uruguay) or of sub-Saharan African ancestry (especially in Brazil). Not to mention nazi-extracted Germans, too.
While distinctive, groups such as Khoisan, native Australians, Melanesians, etc have such relatively small populations they can pretty much be ignored on a global scale.
Much like “Jewish” as descriptor of both a religion and an ethnicity, “Asian” is commonly used to denote “people of (one of) the ethnic groups formerly termed ‘Mongoloid’,” as well as “inhabitant or native of Asia the continent.” This usage confutes ethnic groupings by confusing “denizen of Asia” with “person of East Asian or related racial extraction.”
I would love to see some system set up that acknowledges, without bringing into the picture the 300 years of abuse and hatred, oppression and fear, that poison the well, that Kwame Nkrumah, Jomo Kenyatta, and Desmond Tutu have phenotypical characteristics in common that they do not share with Dag Hammarskjold and Mohandas Gandhi or with Sun Yatsen and Saionji, each pair of which also have characteristics in common justifying some sort of broad grouping of ethnicities.
