Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
Do you have any ideas about what words to use for that guarantee, or where in the Constitution to put it?

All Australians

Spear a few of them!
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
