Man Uses TikTok To Explain Racism Problem In Australia

Man Uses TikTok To Explain Racism Problem In Australia

An Australian man has gone viral after using groceries to explain racism on TikTok.

In the clip the fella, who uses the TikTok handle @pnuks, can be seen pointing to various items in his trolley to show the bias against the Indigenous community in Australia.

He starts by saying: "Using Woolworth's I'm going to explain the Black Lives Matter problem in Australia."

Before sharing a misconception in the country: "But Indigenous people get free things from the government."

The clip then cuts to his full trolley, where he explains that various products represent elements of Aboriginal culture - for example his steaks are 'culture' and bread is 'language'.

He then chucks in some rice which represents 'ability to dance' but as he attempts to walk off with his trolley, he's stopped by a white man who says: "Mate, that's ours."

In response the TikToker tries to pull the trolley back, saying: "What do you mean, we've been here ages before you."

But the white man continues, taking away his trolley and then his shoes, while the man protests: "You can't take these, this is like family, these are my babies, part of a whole generation, what do you mean?"

The white man then hands him a basket of inferior goods - powdered milk and tin of processed meat - and tells him: "Don't worry, I'll pay for it."

As the clip ends a second shopper walks past saying: "You get everything paid for by the government."

The clip has been viewed more than 600,000 with people in the comments praising the man for 'nailing' the issue with his sketch.

This isn't the first clip he's uploaded attempting to explain the race problems in Australia and he's a big hit thanks to his simple analogies.

One impressed viewer commented: "This was so informative, thank you so much. Hopefully using this same analogy, I can get my family to understand too."

While a second added: "This is definitely an eye-opener for me. I love how you're explaining everything to make it easier for us who don't understand properly."

Someone else commented: "Thank you for finding a way to educate the young generation of TikTok so effectively through your videos, seeing as not many parents have been."
