Comment on Court placing itself above the community? by Evelyne Roullet.

Quote: “The court has also long recognised ‘the continuing stewardship of those people over the various lands in Central Australia’ and ‘the social, economic cultural and other disadvantages to which Aboriginal peoples have been and continue to be subjected’.” End of quote.
To be or not to be?

Court placing itself above the community?
John, it is not my stereotypical categorisation but one made by Indigenous http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-05/dont-call-them-disadvantaged/8501744 Please read, before judging.
Those who know me could tell that I am non-judgemental (this include Aborigines) and I am not trying to redefine “what it is to be Indigenous”. Raised in Africa with mixed Italian, French, Turc blood flowing into my body and my brain, I can appreciate all cultures.

‘Lost’ man survived on bushfood banquet
Was he really lost? Or was it a demonstration of Aboriginal superiority in skill and knowledge of this land?
No supermarket, no Google, no GPS etc. How many Australians know what is a soakage? And especially make one?
Soakages were once a dependable and important water source for Australian Aboriginal people and although many are dried or contaminated now, they can still be found across the deserts.
Those skills should be taught in all our schools as survival is more important than money.
In case of national disaster, I put my life in Aboriginal hands rather that in our governments’.


Drowning in bad news stories? Try this.
Congratulations.


Missing man found safe and well after 17 days
Police said they will interview Morton once he has recovered to learn more about his 17-day disappearance, including how he was able to survive in the extreme conditions. ???
The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.
