Comment on Education: Alice must lift its game. by Arthur Bell.

I tell a lot of Aboriginal people including mostly the youth, Youse want to get off your arses and get going. Get involved. You know them Black people in America? Those African American People that Dominate World Sports? The Runners, the Boxers, all them Basketball and Baseball players?
The West Indies cricket players? Bob Marley?
All those Black Soul Singers?
Those Black musicians? Your Heroes The Hip Hop Artists? You know about Barack Obama? The most powerful man in the world? And you see them Black Super Models? The highest paid in the World?
You see all these thousands of Black African Refugees in Australia with thousands more to come? Well, they are all One Mob!! And in a few years time, not long, these people will Dominate in this Country. Just like they do in America!!
And while you young (and old) fellas sit around playing Jacky Jacky, with your Surly, Chip on the Shoulder, Grudge Against Society Attitude, the African Aussie may will be the future, Black Face of Australia.
And they feel No Obligation to Aboriginal People or the Aboriginal Cause.
There will be a Black Prime Minister of Australia eventually. But you can bet your bottom dollar he (she) won’t be Aboriginal.
With the tens of thousands and generations of highly motivated and qualified Indian people already here and involved in everything from bus and taxi drivers, railway workers to running their own businesses.
And as registrars and consultants in charge of hospitals. And with their background it won’t be long before these people will be involved in the running of this Country. Nor do they have any sympathy for the so called, “Plight of the Aborigine”. The days of Dad and Dave and Jacky Jacky and the Boss are numbered. It won’t be to long before victim-hood will not be tolerated.
No more Government Handouts, Grants or Funding. Along with the Oil the Gas and the Coal, the Money will be All Gone! Most of it Squandered. And future Generations may well ask, Who was responsible for this Wastage!? The Aboriginal Victim Industry (AVI) will Become Irrelevant. Multiculturalism will be the Order of the Day. Tempered by the Law of Natural Selection. And if We, the Aboriginal People can’t compete, our existence and traditions will be as Tokens of Symbolism, Cultural Museums. (c. 6/2010 alb) extract from

Thanks Paul, it looks like I’ll have to go through all that stuff on my site again to see what you are referring to! But that’s alright, as I try to do it whenever my health allows, and as time goes by, anyway.
To re-edit and sometimes to moderate my published or stated view, over a number of years.
“For many to move on means forget what happened, until it happens again … then complain again until decide forget it”.
A couple of things here, as I see it, in the future of multiculturalism governance, the above options will simply, not be available. It will not be a continuing saga a la “days of our lives”.
Like what happened 227 years ago, there will be major disruptions of the way of life in this Country. And the only people that have a historical or any moral obligation to the descendants of the original inhabitants, as has already been pointed out, will no longer dominate or be in charge.

Will the NT also stop funding outstations?
For many years now Aboriginal people living a traditional or semi-traditional lifestyle, have been lulled into a false sense of security. By do-gooders and the misguided. And by the ignorant and the mischievous. (alb. c. 06/2013.)

“Time to move on. What we’re talking about is history. If we don’t start moving on, the foreigners coming into this country, coming here to make their home, will walk all over us.”
This is the what I try to alert my fellow indigenous to.

Self help not part of the welfare mantra
Wasted conversation this bloke, Erwin. Thought you would’ve seen that! Ex Oxfam crusader a la John Pilger. With all the answers. No solutions, but all the answers.

Firebrands United: Block gas, oil production, says Anderson
We have the Sovereignty Mob. Then the Recognise Mob. The Treaty Mob. With the Aboriginal Provisional Government. And the National Congress.
Some very determined, articulate and well paid Blackfellas.
Some very seasoned campaigners. As Stephen Hagan would say, “the usual suspects”. And most ideologically opposed.
With views and agendas incompatible. And some might say, “with heads buried in the sand”.
“They” want to be in charge. “They” want to run the show.
And all the rest of us Blackfellas have to follow “their” solutions and agendas. Apparently. Evidently. Whether we want to or not. Whether we “agree” to or not. Whether we “like” it or not. All on their own trip. Many are a law unto themselves.
Many of these prominent long time long term Aboriginal activists, agitators and media and self-appointed so-called leaders, they have to take a lot of responsibility for where we are today. A lot of what’s happening today developed on their watch.
And it can be argued that they have failed us. With trillions of dollars generated in the name of and in the cause of, the advancement and the betterment of the Aboriginal and Islander People of Australia.
A failed exercise in economic independence and self determination. With many wasted opportunities. Not to forget the money. WASTED. SQUANDERED. Aboriginal Rights?
