SBS chief executive Michael Ebeid thinks democratic processes demonstrate overt racism:

“With the advent of Brexit, Trump and on our own shores the resurgence of One Nation, there’s a growing connection between economic disadvantage and racially motivated resentment, fear and uncertainty,” he said. 

“That can only be countered by helping all Australians understand each other better.”

Understanding doesn’t necessarily inspire tolerance; in fact, often quite the opposite.
