Despite the significant population of the Sutherland Shire, many people are obviously quite misinformed and/or ignorant regarding the thousands of people who call the shire home, generalising the entire population of the Sutherland Shire into one narrow category which best fits their distorted views, branding residents as sheltered, ignorant, idiotic and racist. Those who decide to take a narrow, generalised, ignorant view of Sutherland Shire residents as being, ironically, narrow-minded and ignorant, are simply being hypocrites.
One common incorrect claim is of the Sutherland Shire as being ruled by racist attitudes. Many simply state this following reports of the Cronulla riots, whereby a very small portion of racially motivated (predominantly) young men took to racially motivated violence. Though it should be noted that such assaults came from both sides, such violence is inexcusable. However, one can not determine that they know all there is to know about a population from media reports on one incident. Such ignorance would be akin to deciding from reports of Melbourne’s Indian student bashings that that entire locality must be full of racists, certainly flawed logic.
To those who continue to ridicule the Sutherland Shire and its residents, feel free to perhaps get to know the locality and population you seem to despise before making incorrect allegations and cruel remarks.
If all you have to say is negative and derogatory, then say nothing at all.
