UNCC300 – SUPPLEMENTARY ASSESSMENT SEMESTER 2 2019
For your supplementary assessment, you are required to reflect on some of the issues surrounding the issue of racism in Australia.
You should focus on these two points in your reflection (which you can write in essay form or with subtitles):
1. Write a reflection explaining how the common good is challenged or negated by this issue (see the Reading below) locally and globally (approximately 400 words).
2. Propose two or three ways to address the challenge, as an advocate, in order to achieve a more just community or society (approximately 800 words).
In your answer, you will need to demonstrate your understanding of the Common Good and other CST principles.
NB: You are not required to make reference to all CST principles; 3-5 CST principles will be sufficient.

“Racism is a disease that must be cured” (Gregory, 2018)
Some influential bishops have recently called upon us to confront the scourge or disease of racism in many parts of the world.
They argue that racism is a scourge or disease because it is a violation of the most basic principles of social justice. They reflect on displaced, homeless and suffering refugees, here and abroad, for example, and also the dispossessed, the poor and the vulnerable, in and outside of our communities. They think it is time to tackle the problem locally and globally. They draw our attention to the magnitude of resettlement around the world since the last century and increases in racism in many parts of the world.
They also broaden their reflections to include wider abuses, inhumanity and cruelty in the name of racism, which they argue prevent us all from becoming a just global community.
They argue also that it is crucial to advocate for, defend and promote the interests of those who have suffered because of the scourge or disease of racism, and they call upon us all to show courage and promote social justice, here and everywhere.
