Comment on Ted Egan: Forget splitting hairs, counting drops of blood. by Davo.

Uncle Hucklebuck: That has to be the most pointless, simplistic comment I’ve ever read here.
I’m sure mining on Aboriginal land and the Aboriginal aspect of tourism more than pays for Aboriginal people using the social security net and whatever you’re milking from the taxpayer.

Davo Also Commented

Ted Egan: Forget splitting hairs, counting drops of blood.
Yes, Pauline Hanson is Indigenous, Indigenous to Australia, because she was born in Australia.
Ultra right wing dog whistler Andrew Bolt has also labelled himself Indigenous.
And that’s the problem with the word Indigenous.
It’s a word that has crept into the Australian vocabulary and become more used in the last 20 to 30 or so years.
It’s certainly taken off since the Mabo decision, when Torres Strait Islanders became more prominent. Instead of going to the effort of saying “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders”, you can just lump both peoples together as “Indigenous”.
Whoever labelled First Australians with such a difficult word wasn’t First Australian.

Someone please remind Arunta Man and Jack we are talking about the financial situation of an Aboriginal media organisation and not their disappointment of who has been recognised as TOs. Is it sour grapes?

Boos and jeers to people like “Liberal” (not small l) who just like to sit on the sidelines and hang you-know-what.


‘Cop will be labelled for the rest of his life as a blackfeller killer’
@ Really: You ask: “Would you mob be jumping on the band wagon if it was the other way around? Blackfella killing a white police officer”.
There’s plenty of white police officers killing black people, but a blackfella killing a white police officer? In what universe does that happen?


‘Cop will be labelled for the rest of his life as a blackfeller killer’
Any clown can become a police officer these days. It’s a job you can get when you can’t get a job.
He could have used his Taser, capsicum spray, or shot him in a non-fatal area like in the leg.
Just an incompetent cop who received poor training.
Should’ve stuck to harassing people coming out of the bottle shop, but now he has to live with the fact he’s killed someone.


Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
It costs $46 for an adult spring pass at Niagara Falls ($66 AUD). $35 for children ($51 AUD). Add $10 for car entry ($14.52 AUD) and you can’t swim in Niagara Falls. A lot of the comments around Uluru are just plain mean spirited.
