That racist cartoon by Bill Leak in The Australian would have caused outcry 30yrs ago. How it’s published in major outlet now beyond belief.

How does that Bill Leak cartoon *actually* get published in 2016? Is it actually not hate speech?

A reminder that The Australian, a national broadsheet, has been publishing Bill Leak’s racist scribbles since ’06: pic.twitter.com/XzY6xANZzv
