Re blogging yesterday’s post:
I decided to write a short blog after reading the following
I have never understood racism
I have an acquaintance locally who is “fullblood” indigenous Australian.
A wise and caring lady
She is also far more tolerant and patient than I
People treat her with contempt and it is “like water over a ducks back” to her.
We were discussing racism not so long ago
and I mentioned that an indigenous friends mother had been packed raped by 10 white men.
This lady said to me ”It happens both ways”
“Yes but if your people did something like that they would be put to death
whereas in our culture they say —-
“Just a “gin” no worries”
