I am a happy wog living in the best country on earth - Oz, natch - and watching the U.S.A have one heck of a big ol' discussion about race, whether some folks want to realise it or not.
Aboriginal people are people, no different to any wog in the country, no different to any skip and if all they are is pissed or diddling their kids then they are disgusting wastful people who deserve our contempt and will not be valued while they persist in that behaviour.
If by this she means the many wogs in Oz have their own culture and like it a lot, then yeah.

  Wog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wog is a word with definite and widespread currency in contemporary Australian English, and for the most part it is rarely considered to be the sort of slur or insult that it remains in other parts of the Anglosphere.
Wog is a shortened version of the word polliwog (frequently modified with the word slimy), used for sailors during the Line-crossing ceremony on the first time they cross the equator.

 The Wog Boy movie review, In Film Australia
It quickly becomes evident that ‘The Wog Boy’ is not a plot-orientated film, but rather an extended collection of sketch comedy, courtesy of debut co-screenwriter and Melbourne comedian Nick Giannopoulos, who is also the star of the show, the Wog Boy himself.
His philosophy is, if it’s a wog boy he is, then it’s a wog boy he’ll be.
That is fundamentally the plot of the film -- Steve’s rise to fame -- and for the climax a half-witted incident involving a ludicrous political scam to eliminate the dole is introduced to finish the piece off.

 Wog Commune | Rantmedia Community   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Largely, I'd say that the structure of the 12-step groups is something to studied, because they have successfully formed a worldwide network with no membership listings, no dues, and a minimal amount of rules, while remaining very successful in attaining their goals (which are, of course, all goals for the individuals).
WOGs are not armed well enough to be an effective fighting force in mass.

Prior to 9/11, I had always (without thought) played the part of the "good wog", the wog who is westernized to the point of not realizing he's a wog anymore.
As for the Wogs references, we were an SAC school, the air base had a wonderful diverse mix of students.

I chose the name for this website because I spent so many years (20+) in the great United States Navy and never made it across the equator.
To the unknowing, a 'wog is short for a pollywog, a "newbie", an uninitiated sailor, and supposedly a lowly sea scum.
When crossing the equator pollywogs, when I was in the navy, went through an initiation ceremony to become crusty old (?) shellbacks, rulers of the sea.
