The Herd – 77%

These Aussie hip hoppers employ real instruments. According to this 2003 song (warning: many curse words), 77% of Australian citizens are racists. This statistic refers to a public opinion poll result regarding the Tampa Affair.  A 2001 situation involved the government of Australia refusing permission for a vessel hosting refugees from Afghanistan to enter Australian waters. Tampa was the name of the boat. During these times, refugees were regularly arriving and the concern was being flooded with so many newcomers. There was public support for this position, which is why The Herd felt that their fellow citizens needed to reconsider their apparent racism.
