No, no, no, no
Sorry, but you're either deliberately not telling the truth .. or you are ignorant of the truth.
Either way, you're speading disinfo .. and it needs correction for the sake of those who might read this thread.
Ok .. my source: Australian aborigines. If you want to claim THEY are liars and spreading disinfo .. you go right ahead.
I know on very intimate level an Aboriginal elder .. a woman.
The woman in question is of senior years, but alert and knows what she's talking about.
She is half white/half Aboriginal, from a Tweed Heads tribe.
She was rescued from her tribe by whites who took her into their home, provided her an education and later sent her to learn household-management,
known then as 'domestic science'.
She worked all her life until she reached retirement age.
She married a Solomon Islander. For those not familiar with the Solomons, they are NOT Australian aborigines.
Solomon Islanders pride themselves on being 'the world's blackest people'.
My Aborigine neighbour and her Solomon islander had seven children, six who survived. Those children were thus 1/4 white, 1/4 Australia Aborigine and
1/2 Solomon Island extraction. They were naturally far darker complexioned than their mother.
My neighbour's children had children of their own.
My neighbour said 3/4 of her grandchildren had to be 'taken into care' due to parental neglect.
My Aborigine neighbour told me in detail about her son. He was made a manager of a motel on the northern NSW coast. The motel was purchased
specificially for the purpose by the Aussie government, using taxpayers' money. His mother (my neighbour) said the government also paid for a
'real manager' to run the motel, housekeepers and other staff and an accountant. She said her son had next to nothing to do with the day to day
running of the motel and spent his time 'drinking and fishing'. I asked why the government had made him manager of the motel. She said it was part
of a programme to increase Aborigines self-esteem and to 'prove that Aborigines could run business if given the chance'.
Ok. Case Two.
My Aborigine neighbour used to catch the bus in the morning and return at night. One day she told me she was exhausted and that she'd told her
daughter: 'Listen woman .. you stop your running around the world and get in and clean that dump you've been given'.
Then she explained. Her daughter (1/4 Australian Aborigine, 1/4 white and 1/2 Solomon Island extraction) had been 'given' a 'Aborigine gift-shop'
on the Gold Coast's most prestigious marina tourist centre. The rent alone was staggering and would have bought a couple of family homes per
The 'gift shop' sold mostly Asian-import 'Australian Souveniers' such as Aussie flags, statuettes of Australian fauna, kangaroo-skin backpacks,
The gift-shop was fully staffed. My Aborigine neighbour said her daughter had also been 'given' a high-rise apartment overlooking both the ocean
and the broadwater and marina. My neighbour said her daughter sometimes didn't even go in to work at all and at other times she arrived late, left
early. Again, according to my neighbour, the enormous cost of the gift-shop and staff was funded by the Aussie tax-payer, as was the daughter's
Further, said my neighbour .. her daughter (1/4 Aborigine, 1/4 white, 2/4 Solomon Islander extraction) travelled around the world at Aussie tax-payer
expense, business class. The daughter's most recent junket, according to her mother, was to travel to the US to 'meet' with American Indians, to
discuss ways in which they'd been badly done by, by the American and Australian people, in effect.
My neighbour said she had been travelling several times a week to her daughter's luxurious, taxpayer-funded apartment .. to clean it. On the other
days, she travelled by bus to clean her other daughter's taxpayer-funded house. She said she'd had enough and had told her daughters to lift their
game and get off their spoiled bums.
My Aborigine neighbour pointed out one of her grandsons. His hair was intricately fashioned in African-type corn-braids, with a plait at the back.
'He's covered in tattooes', said my neighbour, describing her grandson (who at the time was doing 'burn-offs' across a neighbour's manicured
lawns, thus causing scars that would take the rest of summer to regrow
) as a 'bad little bastard' who'd already been in trouble with the law
more times than she could count. She said she'd offered to take him in, to prevent him being placed in care.
She said almost all her other grandchildren had been 'placed into care' because their parents (my neighbour's own children) had been found guilty
of neglect. This one grandson (the menace on the bike, smoking like an old man and spitting like a tough guy towards my retired neighbours) she said,
was her 'big hope'. And then she told me that the government 'reserved a place at university' for any Aboriginal child who 'gets to Grade Ten'.
Other Australian children of course, have to get a high pass at the end of Grade Twelve, plus pass a barrage of extra tests, before they're eligible
to apply for a university place (most of which in any case are sold to overseas students).
My neighbour said if she could get the kid through to Grade Ten, then his future was assured, because not only would he be given a university place,
he'd also be provided with tutors (tax payer expense) and would be virtually 'gauranteed' a pass, because Aborigines were set easier exams than
whites and got lots of help to DO those exams. She said he would also receive travel, study, books, clothing and other payment and that the
government was 'desperate' to have a few Aborigine graduates who would then be fast-tracked into good, government jobs.
I spoke with the ABC shortly after Maxine McCue savaged Pauline Hanson on tv. I told them all I've written above and more. They called me a
'liar'. I told them my Aborigine neighbour had given me permission to give them her name, address and phone number .. and had extended an
invitation for them to contact her 'and get it straight from the old Abos mouth'
unquote. The ABC backed down. The producer said he'd
relied for his facts on 'researchers'. They didn't apologise though and didn't contact my neighbour.
