Racist, backward: Sol's parting shot
Controversial former Telstra chief Sol Trujillo has taken a swipe at Australia, describing the nation he called home for four years as racist, backward and like "stepping back in time''.
Asked in a BBC interview whether there was racism in Australia, Mr Trujillo said: "I think it was evident in a lot of ways with me personally but more importantly with others.''
His comments have shocked some, including the head of the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia.
"I was quite flabbergasted to hear his comments,'' said the chamber's chief executive, Charles Blunt. "And I was quite shocked.''
And Victorian Premier John Brumby said the comments appeared to be nothing more than sour grapes. "I don't know what he's talking about, frankly."
