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

Good on You Bessie Price. About time someone has got the ability let alone the gall to stand up and speak about an issue that is always swept under the carpet. It is all true in what you say. Drugs and alcohol are the only reason why women suffer at the hands of their menfolk. My grandfather was a half caste married to my grandmother a full blood.
He never had an education but he worked for rations to provide for his family. He never once put his hand to my grandmother. They were never allowed to be in town after 4pm let alone drink.
The stolen generation was a terrible thing for those people that lived through that but they had pride for themselves and their families.
What Pride does the Aboriginal generation of today have!!!!
Thank you Bessie for speaking up and making people take notice. Those people who badmouth you have never walked in your shoes and never will. They have no idea of what you speak about.
