Ythanside BS: Great White Father knows best...? (Australia) (81* d) RE: BS: Great White Father knows best...? (Australia) 27 Jun 07

Rowan, what did make me weep, literally, were the countless stories of inhumane treatment of Aboriginals and mixed-race Australians by their fellow countrymen. Some incidents that I witnessed were all the more shocking because of their casual, disinterested nature so reminiscent of apartheid South Africa. The most common view I encountered amongst Aboriginals and enlightened European-Australians was that this deplorable situation could not be improved without a sea change in the political will of the government, and none of them judged that to be a likely development in the forseeable future. It is to be hoped that this neccessary change occurs before the inevitable backlash from the disenfranchised, disenchanted and justifiably angry younger generation hits the fan.
