I agree with Janet Brown. Not only are the Aboriginals …

Comment on Thanks for more ‘us and them’, Ms Macklin and Mr Snowdon by Bev Emmott.

I agree with Janet Brown. Not only are the Aboriginals part of this state but so are the rest of us. This kind of behaviour is the basis of racism in this town. Yes, let’s have a bit of responsible behaviour from the Aboriginals. Just because they are Aboriginal does not mean they have rights over everyone else. They are a real drain on the state and federal finances. In other words it is an excuse for the Aboriginals to do as they want – and eventually it will backfire on them.
They seem to think they have the right to take everyone’s money and not give anything back – shame on Warren Snowden and Jenny Macklin and anyone else who supports this kind of behaviour – you are a destructive influence.
Time and time again Aboriginals who are destroying others’ property are let off – those are the ones giving the Aboriginals a bad name. I wonder if an earthquake happened on their land – would they still own it and use their own money to repair any damage? As for the Christians it was God who created the heavens and the earth and not the Aboriginals – so the Aboriginals and their supporters dishonour the creator. What has really happened is that some of the Aboriginals have delusionary behaviour along with anyone else of any race taking this attitude.
Take note that it is only the minority of Aboriginals doing this and the ones who gain financially – but do you see many of them help even the poor, needy or aged of their own race – let alone any other race. They ignore the spiritual warnings and will bring about their own destruction.

Government and council bicker over youth 
As for the two Aboriginal adults that walked across the road in front of me – one did the right thing and walked across at the traffic lights in the lines – giving an excellent example for anyone watching. The other walked behind me – outside of the lines – giving a bad example for anyone watching. Drivers have a lot to watch for – so if pedestrians do the unexpected they are asking for trouble no matter what the race.

Government and council bicker over youth 
Also on top of adding to Youth Activities in this town – not to be soft on anyone who commits criminal acts no matter what their colour or creed or even their age. Tougher penalties – MUST GO TO SCHOOL and if not then house arrest, makes those doing the damage pay – not the parents but the individuals.

Some of the Aboriginal kids could be working from aged 14 on weekends and after school – fit it in with sport and other activities so they are gaining financially and their minds are occupied. Get them saving – like to buy cars when they are old enough – or to go on holidays because if they do it themselves then they can be proud of themselves.

Kumunjayi Granites said: “I speak your language but you don’t speak mine.”
There are hundreds of Aboriginal languages. It is impossible to learn them all no matter how well intentioned.
As for the Aboriginal cultures there are hundreds of them too. Aboriginals have been hurting me for decades, and my birth family and in-laws have supported them.
I am white. Does that mean my culture means nothing and I have to give all to the Aboriginals? They complain about everything, yet what have they done to help their own families?
There are still rock throwing incidents and other things against the whites.
We are all Australian if born in this country or naturalised and for decades everything has been done to help them.
But when you do, the ones complaining are the ones that go against you and take from you what you earned.
Now for stealing, what is the Aboriginal punishment? For rape, what is the Aboriginal punishment? I know for sure the Aboriginals are far harder on their own people for doing this sort of thing than the whites are.

Ryan to run in Braitling for the CLP?
After his record who would want him?

Billen’s family: Make telling hotel where you trek mandatory
Funny but what is coming out in these posts is the lack of responsibility of tourist and locals as well. Being in the outback is not a joke – and yes it is dangerous especially for foreigners or people from the coast
People running hotels, caravan parks, other accomodation should give out safety pamplets when people book in, and ask if they understand the pamphlets, even have them sign to say they read them. It would not have to be a long pamphlet.
Also people advertising Alice Springs on Internet sites should be made to put a piece on safety in the outback as an introduction to their sites so people booking on line get this information before they book.
