Comment on Court placing itself above the community? by Evelyne Roullet.

Quote: “The court has also long recognised ‘the continuing stewardship of those people over the various lands in Central Australia’ and ‘the social, economic cultural and other disadvantages to which Aboriginal peoples have been and continue to be subjected’.” End of quote.

Court placing itself above the community?
John, it is not my stereotypical categorisation but one made by Indigenous http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-05/dont-call-them-disadvantaged/8501744 Please read, before judging.
Those who know me could tell that I am non-judgemental (this include Aborigines) and I am not trying to redefine “what it is to be Indigenous”. Raised in Africa with mixed Italian, French, Turc blood flowing into my body and my brain, I can appreciate all cultures.
