With all due respect Ancient Arrow, There’s a few points Id like to discuss, So please lets keep this civil for one. Racism is a very thin line
that’s often hidden, but I have tried hard not to be racist, and so have you. I appreciate that, but lets be up front and honest at least.
But Firstly Id like to point out something
- My Mother is Maori, a native of NZ. Dark skinned. I have tribal land in Northern NZ. Im not your regular ‘white man’ either.
John Howard’s intervention into Aboriginal Territories as a political move. Nothing more. He opened up a can of worms he never expected.
Howard refused to apologise to the Aboriginal people for the stolen generation. And this didn’t bode well with some voters. He knew Kevin Rudd had
promise to apologise so he needed to play a political chess move to counter this apparent ‘ Aboriginal Sympathy ‘
So, he sent in the task force under the guise of ‘’ helping aboriginals fix the problems in their society ‘’
It didn’t work. In fact, the intervention found a number of damning things:
Child sex abuse is happening in many Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory and a lack of education and an abundance of alcohol is to
blame, an inquiry has found.
The report also outlines allegations of sex trades and juvenile prostitution.
Aboriginal children, including babies as young as seven months, are being raped by community members, with the crimes going largely unreported
and with few cases making it to trial, a Central Australian prosecutor says.
THE entire Northern Territory should be ashamed over allegations a 12-year-old boy was repeatedly raped by five teenagers and five adults at a
remote Aboriginal community, a Darwin magistrate said yesterday.
By now you must know there has been an epidemic of child abuse in Aboriginal settlements. In May, a Crown prosecutor in Alice Springs, Nanette
Rogers, tried to warn of the horrific crimes she saw committed.
There was the seven-month-old who was raped so badly she needed surgery. There was the 10-year-old who was tied to a tree for weeks by a tribal
"husband" who raped her repeatedly. There was the six-year-old who drowned when a petrol sniffer raped her anally as he held her down in a lake.
Howard’s intervention into Aboriginal communities had reports flowing out Rape, Molestation, Alcoholism and violence in these communities. These
incidents never made the news, because Aboriginal communities preferred to keep matters amongst themselves.
This explains why there are such high rates of suicide, mortality and abuse in these communities.
This sort of thing has been ongoing since before white man was here.
Something that Aboriginal communities rarely admit to, is that the parents actually PLACED their children into government programs, because of the
violence and molestation occurring
Other evidence led during the cases also provides a totally different perspective. For example, evidence that was unchallenged by the claimants
shows that, during 1946-62 in the territory, half-caste children numbered between 500 and 1000. Only 129 such children were placed in hostels by the
Government and all except three were placed with the mother's consent. Such consent was obtained from discussions that typically extended over 18
months to 2 years.
By contrast, about 450 children were placed in hostels by parents at their own expense, reflecting the general enthusiasm shown by Aboriginal parents
to obtain western education for their children. Some have been unaware that their parents sent them to hostels. However, one prominent person calling
for an apology, Charles Perkins, was aware that his mother put him in a hostel and he later praised the system "as it had excellent results".
Kids were being removed not because they wanted to create a white Australia, but because leaving them in environments where they could be raped,
molested, killed etc was criminal.
We wouldn’t do it today with White people, so why was It a crime to do it back then for Aboriginal people.
Infact, There are Aboriginals today who believe building hostels to educate and take care of aboriginal children, is once again needed
National Indigenous Council's chairwoman, Sue Gordon, who tells us Aboriginal leaders in Halls Creek, and elsewhere, are demanding we again build
hostels to save children.
Listen to other Aboriginal leaders such as Warren Mundine, Wesley Aird, Mick Gooda and New South Wales MP Linda Burney, who all have said a fear
of the "stolen generations" has made us too scared to save Aboriginal children right now.
And why? Because, I believe, we don't want to admit Aboriginal children were once rescued not from their Aboriginality, but from harm just like this.
Today’s aborigines have as much opportunity as anyone.
- Go to school
- Get a job
- Have a career
- Buy a house
- Have a family
There’s no reason they can’t.
Infact, if you turn on the TV you can see
- Cathy Freeman representing Australia and winning Gold
- Cathy Freeman lighting the torch at the World Olympics
- Ernie Dingo discussing music with world famous artists
- AFL Teams who rely heavily on Aboriginal Skill, speed and wit
- Aboriginal Politicians and members of parliament debating against white people
Aboriginals have as much opportunity to live and prosper as I do. In some cases, they are given more welfare and freedoms than I. If you’re poor and
living in a remote community the government will give you welfare, and build a house for you. If im poor and live in a community, I will get a welfare
Now, if I take a walk past the McDonalds in Northbridge I see the same thing every night.
8-12 Aboriginal kids/adults standing/sitting around the entrance. They are drinking, they are sniffing petrol. IF you walk past, they will ask you for
money, some will scream abuse at you, the odd one or two will spit on you, and if you’re really unlucky, they will belt you a few times, kick you
while you’re down then walk off laughing.
I can walk past a park near the council building on Adelaide Tce, and see groups of Aboriginals sitting around in a circle. They are smoking, they are
drinking and they are sniffing petrol.
All these Aboriginals are being paid welfare.
They grew up in the same city I did.
Now, there position has nothing to do with the colour of their skin, or where they are from.
I chose to go to a public primary school.
I chose to go to a public high school.
I chose to work as a checkout assistant or a paper delivery boy and earn money
I chose to go to uni
I chose to earn a living
I chose a career
What did this aboriginal child decide?
He chose to wag school
He chose to steal
He chose to drink and sniff petrol
He chose to live of welfare
He will grow up and end up in fights, end up in jail and end up ruining his life.
Now, is it justified him blaming past atrocities by European settlers that occurred when he wasnt even born?
Is it justified him blaming white people?
No, it seems the one person who could fix his life isn’t going to be held accountable.
But got forbid you say this on TV, Radio or to his face.
Now please excuse me if the following photos offend you, but I believe the below pictures paint a justified reason why Aboriginal remote communities
We give them welfare, we give them homes and this is how they live.
Aboriginal children spend time with their family at one of the town camp's in Alice Springs, 19 May 2007. Police backed by military support will
arrive in Australian Aboriginal communities within days as part of a controversial plan to end child sexual abuse, Prime Minister John Howard said 24
Sorry, but id want to remove the children from this community as well.
The above chose to drink and fight,
The below chose to grow up, and become part of society.
Don’t these aboriginals above look much happier and accepting? Notice the albino 'white man' on the left hand side?
They chose right.
For over 200 years now there is no change in attitudes toward us Aborigines.
Sorry, but maybe we thought in 200yrs the child rape, child abuse, violence, alcoholism could stop? Maybe we were hoping you could join society and
improve it for everyone instead of taking the easy road and blaming white man?
Maybe we thought you could be part of Australia with us, instead of showing us violence?
I know it goes both ways, both whiteman and aboriginal need to change and accept each other.
As I recall, Kevin Rudd apologised, yet all Aboriginals are doing is claiming MORE welfare, still fighting and raping their own, and they have
extended their hands in peace yet.
As for the General, its best to ignore him. He's going to get a knock on the door, you cant post that your gathering weapons to attack Australians
and get away with it. Thats just plain stupid.
