Helen Chebatte Û 8 SUMMARY

Romeo knows the rulesStick with your own kind Don’t dob on your mates or even yo. 45 StarsIn the nineties when I was a teen the Northern suburbs of Melbourne were a diverse and cultural blend where your street may have resembled members of the United Nations I attended a same sex school much as the same as the connecting school of Saint Adele College and Christian Boys where the storyline takes place Bro could have been my teen experience It could have been the same stereotypical cultural groups that continued the trend of segregation If you were an Aussie meaning Caucasian Anglo Saxon you were friends with other Caucasian Anglo Saxon teens the same if you were Maori Asian and Lebanese as seen in Bro My high school had a large Lebanese community and we experienced the same segregation and even being a girls college there were physical fights and weapons used Back then we didn t uestion why that s how it worked You stayed within your own group and it took a strong individual to stray from their own group and befriend others It didn t happen oftenAnyone reading Bro that sees the issue of the us verses them mentality as being unrealistic has never lived in working class and diverse suburbs It even happens as adults We may not involve ourselves in physical conflict but even our close social circles tend to be formed from the same basis Like attracts like and I find that incredibly sad that as Australians we still find ourselves drawn to the same friendships with those who share our cultural beliefs and backgrounds rather than expanding our circles In Bro Romeo finds himself torn He was born in Australia to a Lebanese father an Caucasian Anglo Saxon Australian mother but lives what he sees as the Lebanese culture Even as he identifies as being Australian society still sees him as being Lebanese due to his heritage and the colour of his skinApart from the islander teens or Fresh Off the Boat as they re known the basis of Bro is Australian teen boys and those with a Lebanese background facing off in bouts of physical violence A Fight Club is established where boys are pitted against one another for sport or entertainment It s barbaric but realistic Less than a week ago in Melbourne this happened Teen violence is alive and thriving and the police aren t listening nor are these mostly young men heeding the warning from authorities Bro drives home the message of how we can t all grow up being raised in ivory towers We share different cultural beliefs socioeconomic backgrounds skin colour language sex race ability and the cycle never endsBut through tragedy Bro breaks the cycle of violence and rivalry and although the solution to violence in our communities isn t that simple it does highlight the need for change in our attitudes and mentalityBro is such an important read not only for teens but for Australians to understand the issue of teen violence within society and to discuss at a national level Bro should be part of our schools curriculum in every school library and addressed within youth groups nationwide As Australians we need to openly discuss not only violence but diversity our religious and cultural differences grief gender roles and the role they play in our history But importantly how we can change and educate ourselves and Bro is a brilliantly written insight into diverse teen life of our suburbshttpwwwdivabooknerdcom201603b Twin Obsessions own kind Don’t dob Soulbinder (Spellslinger, of the United Nations I attended a same sex school much as the same as the connecting school Venus in
