Comment on Blackfellers buggering around whitefellers, where’s the off button? by Gareth Lewis.

@6: Agreed Ralph – if being different is active resistance then sure, but the difference and what underlies it is more complicated and this structures a social universe with drivers and prerogatives that include dealing with whitefellas as well as each other.
