“But nobody seems to be able to work out why.”
Could it be because so many of the offenders are raised in overtly racist households where they are taught from when infants that all things Indigenous are superior to all things mainstream? For the child, the first casualty of this would be schooling and a respect for the possibilities that schooling offers.
And then when they get a bit older and come hard up against the unavoidable absurdity of what they have been taught, and realise that they are not only uneducated and ignorant but likely to remain uneducated and ignorant, anger and resentment give rise to a lashing out and a pathetic if understandable attempt to cry the victim?
“You owe me.” No, lad or lass, we don’t owe you, but your parents and early childhood mentors surely do.

Air race re-enactment government’s latest financial folly
Let’s spare a thought for CM Gunner.
He is, quite simply, desperate to be seen to be part of any scheme that has a chance of getting off the ground.
In aviation terms I think that is known as flying by the seat of one’s pants. Poor t’ing.


Firm ‘no’ from PM, Scullion to bailing out ‘bankrupt’ Territory
There’s good money to be had in naming rights.
The Huawei Uluru? Now there’s an idea.


Government offered council up to $5m for Anzac Oval
Five million sounds cheap. Can anyone tell me how much it would cost if I wanted to buy the Melanka site as it is?
And an aside to Janet Brown: If Gunner was really serious about using the old high school site, why is the school still standing?
Gunner has been running a scam since day one. I hope the ALP dumps him sooner rather than later.


National Indigenous Art Gallery future in doubt: Gunner
Unless there is a huge change of mind in council, Anzac Oval will not be sold to the NT government.
Unless there is a correspondingly huge change of mind by the recently formed group of traditional owners, the choice of Anzac Oval for any part of the proposed art gallery will not gain their approval.
So in the face of united opposition, Gunner is now saying the proposed gallery may not go ahead. But then he didn’t have the money to build it anyway, so what gives.
I suspect he is circling the wagons up in Darwin.
Gunner is on thin ice. His brand has become toxic.
I wonder, actually I seriously doubt, if he is still Chief Minister this time next year.


GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Wow! Deep thanks to Erwin’s paper for publishing all this.
The incompetence of successive NT governments is laid out for all to see, but so what? They are hardly alone. Look at the US. Look at Europe. Hell, look at the Globalist World in its incompetent entirety.
Thirty years ago when the USSR’s communist model fell apart, I read an opinion piece somewhere which suggested that if the noise from that collapse (communism) was loud, even louder will be the noise when the other shoe (capitalism) drops.
This goes to the crux of why I appreciate The Donald. His is the most honest face America could be presenting to the world at this point in time. So look at it closely, and marvel at how we got here.
And then fasten your seat belt.
