Elite racism. Polite racism. Subterranean racism. While it's not often talked about, racism is not always attributable to the white lower class, or the poor, or to the extreme right. While it’s easy to focus our outrage on the occasional racist rant on a bus, it’s often much harder to pin down subtler forms of racism that have a far larger impact on people’s lives: where religious, cultural or ethnic minorities are made to feel they require permission to have their say in the national debate. - ABC (2013), Elite racism and the Australian media, retrieved 30/9/2015.
