Prove to me you’re not a racist!

Here’s a corker; Race Discrimination Commissioner Tom Calma wants the burden of proof in cases of racial discrimination to fall on the alleged offender, instead of the person making the complaint. [via The Age]

I shouldn’t have to go into too much detail to explain why it is utterly preposterous to think that anyone believes that people should be found guilty until they can prove their innocence.

Andrew Bolt went as far as suggesting we all make complaints against the commissioner himself, and see how he likes being guilty of racial discrimination with no way of proving otherwise. How exactly do you prove a negative anyway Tom?
