From what I saw on a recent Aljazeera documentary Aboriginals sorely need representation. The doccie showed how Aborigines in several communities were
made out as child abusers, and the government forces were sent to the Northern Territories, and Aboriginals were deprived of their state jobs and
It did a terrible injustice to decent Aboriginal people, who were stereotyped as child molestors, pedophiles and drunks.
There were Aboriginal people affected who looked almost white.
So if states could steal people's children and deprive them of their adult rights over their money no matter what their shade, then that majority
government has deemed those people Aboriginals.
As such, even light or mixed Aboriginals are more than fit to fully represent Aboriginal rights.
After months of investigation only half a dozen people were charged with child abuse - less than the neighboring white communities.
The whole rigmarole stinks of conspiracy.
But this has become typical to undermine minorities globally.
- Accuse them of being imposters, not the true natives (in Australia, supposedly the Dravidians replaced the "truely native" negritos, in America
the "mongoloid Indians" replaced Kennewick Man, blah, bs blah)
- Hide the white male rape and power over their women - stigmatize any mixed people from white society, and then regard them as unrepresentative when
they stand up for indigenous rights, but deprive them otherwise.
- Accuse them of unproven abuse, find ways to isolate their plight, cut their income, increase control over them in red tape that leaves them too busy
with trivialities to fight for land and social rights.
- As with gay people, stereotype them as child molestors, and cut them from main stream empathy.
So, Yes to Aboriginal representation - and if the Aboriginal community is happy with the person and regards them as bona fide, then white society
should shut up.
