A lot has changed since the Australian Constitution was written in 1901. Many Australians may be surprised to know that the Constitution -- the basis for all laws and the political system -- still includes the possibility for discrimination based on your race and ignores Australia's first peoples and their role as custodians of the world's oldest continuing culture.
A constitutional referendum could change this, but first the government wants to engage Australians in a nationwide discussion.
