Does Karana Downs have a history of racism in the community?

I am a 2nd generation Australian (grandparents were born in Greece), born and raised in Sydney, NSW and although I haven't experienced racism myself, I have heard a lot of stories about the racism that is apparently quite common up in QLD. I've always been attracted to the peaceful, semi-rural life, being out in nature while still being within a reasonable driving distance to the city (a 2hr drive to the city is fairly reasonable to me). Having a large enough property where I can raise my own free range chooks and goats and if I'm lucky, a donkey or 2. Karana Downs seems like my idea of paradise, but I am hesitant about seriously considering moving to QLD because of the stories I've heard regarding racism. What is the culture like in Karana Downs? Is there racial diversity? Have there been any racially fueled incidents? Are the people and the community generally warm and welcoming to new members who move there regardless of their cultural background or ancestry? Thanks in advance for your replies.

History?
It still has a terrible prevalence of racism. If it's not Greeks , then it's Chinese, Sudanese or Muslim.
Much of Brisbane has this. It's not the bigot or two though... It's the bigot and the community who follow them blindlessly/ out of fear/brownnosing

I haven't found KD to be any more racist than other areas. There's a bigot or two in any neighbourhood if you look hard enough.
