I have seen it posted on social media several times over the last few years. Incredible story.

The question of whether or not one, as an Australian, is racist is virtually a redundant question.

I think that's what is so cool about him, he let them make their statement - the fact that both of them travelled to Australia to give eulogies and act as pallbearers for him speaks volumes about his participation, for mine.
