Comment on Is it time for a First Nations university? by Surprised!.

I am unsure if it’s such a good idea.
I feel it may promote the already large gap between people.
I am of the understanding that white people would not be allowed to enrol and if that is the case, it is clearly racist.
Somebody asked who would fund this, well perhaps a consortium of the royalty receivers could, so that everyone has skin in the game and hopefully work together to make it a success.
If it goes ahead, it is imperative that the standard of education be maintained or it risks insulting and undermining the Indigenous people who previously worked so very hard and achieved great heights in the existing facilities.

Assange must not be abandoned
There will always be secrets. Unfortunately they are sometimes necessary for strategic reasons but also due to the fact that in some cases people can’t deal with the truth or that can’t keep a secret.
Perhaps concentrate on the secrets that our government is keeping from us first. Then if there is time pursue other causes.
When we criticise the government we need to ask ourselves, did I vote for them?


A troubling snapshot of disadvantage
It was once the parents’ responsibility and when that was stopped it became the school’s responsibility, then the employer’s. It’s time the parents were allowed and made to take on the responsibility.
