Somewhat off topic [again]:
A cursory reading of this online article about Banjo Paterson- http://home.alphalink.com.au/~eureka/banjo.htm shows he held some strong, decidedly non-multicultural positions.
This is not to detract from his creative accomplishments, but as an African American-stratch that-as a human being, I certainly hope that Australia has rejected the sentiments about the undesirability of non-Europeans that it appears that Paterson expressed.
