Comment on Zoning: Racial segregation can start in primary school by Bev Emmott.

Sadadeen was once really good. My kids went there and they learned a lot. There was a high proportion of white kids and quite a few Aboriginals.
My kids learned to be independent there. They are in their twenties now and doing well. All three attended uni, all three had Aboriginal and white friends.
No, we are not rich and lacked family support but all kids learned to work and study at school and the two youngest got into top unis. They understand the Aboriginal culture because of their friends,
My youngest decided at eleven she was going to work, and did it. Yes, it was illegal, but their father had died and none of the relations would help so once they got older they helped themselves. It now shows. They have got themselves set up as well as they could, paid for their own trips overseas. My eldest daughter is getting top marks at uni and both are coping by themselves because I cannot help them.
I was working until I got very ill but now because some of the relations from Adelaide and Sydney, QLD and Vic are all pro-Aboriginal and refused to help us but took money from us.
Yet we are surviving better than they. They waste so much and don’t know how to cope without their massive pays and charity money. On the other hand we cope without help. They are jealous of us.
The schools need to understand that the private education is actually failing many because when they leave the kids are suddenly faced with reality.
The public school children are faced with reality all their lives and it really shows when they get into the permanent workforce.

Mass rally shows fury, distrust for police, government
A comment: We are white but know many Aboriginals. Over the past few days someone (don’t know who) has been chucking used babies nappies into our front yard.
We live in an NT housing trust house and have been abused by Aboriginals, and their white pals, who think they can take our jobs, possessions, accounts, cars, everything from us.
They are helped by my white relatives both from my birth family and from my English in-laws who migrated here in the 1960s.
If Aboriginals want respect or the whites who back them to the hilt want respect, then let them show others respect too.
I show respect to those who show me respect, regardless of nationality or position.
It is time this town woke up and started forgetting the skin colour and wealth but remembering we are all human beings and our insides are all the same.
I have respected those Aboriginals and whites who behave decently but how can anyone respect those who don’t, no matter what their position.
By the way this information goes on Facebook to so the nation can see what is really happening. It is also going overseas to tell others what this country is actually like.


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.


Making new tools for living 
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.
