Comment on MLA Bess Price on ‘the killing of our women, abuse of our kids’ by Filipio.

What does this article mean by using the description “full blood”? We are all full blood, aren’t we, unless you’ve had a serious accident or just finished donated some?
About time this antiquated, unscientific and frankly, ignorant phrase was no longer used.
Should we refer to half-castes? Or to quadroons and octoroons? Or what about part Aboriginal (to which the best reply is undoubtedly, which part – my hair? My leg?). Ms Price is Aboriginal, full stop.
