Australia’s True Colours are Red, White, and Racist

Postby Squire » 28 Sep 2018, 14:08

Racism is a constant in Australian culture which also manifests itself as Islamophobia and xenophobia.

The attitude of closet poms to Australian Aboriginals is an appalling example of the racism underlying Australian society.

It's not only Aboriginals. Before WW2 it was the Chinese. After WW2 it was Italians, Greeks, Germans, and Japanese. Then later it was Vietnamese, other 'gooks', Lebanese and other Arabs. Now it's boat people. Racism against Aboriginals was never overshadowed by other forms of closet pom racism.

The blood of hate stains the flag.

Australia’s True Colours Are Red, White, And Racist. No-One Should Stand For It.
By Liam McLoughlin on September 26, 2018 Civil Society
This nation is stained with blood, soaked with white supremacy, and shameless with its boastful brand of discrimination. Aboriginal leaders and refugees light the path to justice and healing, we just need the courage to follow them, writes Liam McLoughlin.

The Australian flag is red.

Red for the blood of Indigenous people, decimated from a population of 750,000 across 500 different nations in 1788 to 31,000 by 1911. Red for those killed in the Tasmanian genocide and red for those slaughtered in 500 massacres around the country.

Red for the one in three Indigenous children taken from their families between 1910 and 1970, for the genocidal act that was the Stolen Generations.

Red for the 99 Indigenous deaths in custody investigated by the Royal Commission and red for the over 400 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who have died in custody since the Commission released its 339 recommendations in 1991.

Red for the Indigenous victims of police brutality, like the 14-year-old Aboriginal boy tasered and capsicum sprayed who cried out “I can’t see. I’m going to die… I want to be with my Mum”, a mother who had died when he was just 7-years-old. Red for the families of TJ Hickey, Ms Dhu, Evelyn Greenup, Colleen Craig Walker and Clinton Speedy-Duroux, who have never seen justice, and red for the families of the boys who were chased by police and died in Perth’s Swan River last week, who likely never will.


Ms Dhu, who died in custody aged 22 in 2014, over unpaid fines.
Red for the 12 asylum seekers and refugees who have died in Australia’s offshore prison camps. Red for the high rates of self-harm, suicide attempts, and violent and sexual assaults on Manus and Nauru.

The Australian flag is white.

White for the long lineage of white supremacist leaders, ranging from Governor Phillip with his 1790 orders to kill 10 ‘natives’ and capture two more, to NSW Solicitor-General Alfred Stephen’s late 1830s solution to the “Aboriginal problem”, which was to “boldly and broadly exterminate”, to Australia’s first Prime Minister Edmund Barton’s belief that “These races are, in comparison with white races… unequal and inferior”; from Chief Protector of Aborigines in Western Australia AO Neville’s early 20th century mission of “breeding out the color”, to the assimilationist policy of the Menzies government and their failure to recognise Aboriginal people as part of the Australian population; from Howard’s abolition of ATSIC, the Northern Territory Intervention and comments that “British settlement was undeniably very good for Australia”, to Abbott’s 2014 slashing of $534 million from Indigenous programs and remarks that this country was “nothing but bush” in 1788; from Turnbull’s dismissal of the Uluru Statement, to Scott Morrison’s appointment of Tony Abbott as Indigenous envoy.

White for the White Australia Policy of 1901, which sought to preserve a white, British national character. The Bulletin magazine’s banner, “Australia for the White Man” became a national slogan; the object of the White Australia Board Game was to “get the coloured men out and the white men in”, not to mention White Australia plays, pins, badges, songs and even cans of White Australia sliced pineapples.

White for John Howard, who took up this mantle in the 1980s with his One Australia policy calling for an end to multiculturalism, and with his case for slowing Asian immigration. White for Howard’s biological daughter, Pauline Hanson, who in 1996 backed her father’s sentiments about abolishing multiculturalism and warned Australia was “in danger of being swamped by Asians”. White for Hanson’s Senate speech 20 years later when she economised on sentence structure by saying Australia was “in danger of being swamped by Muslims” and called for a Muslim immigration ban. White for Fraser Anning’s efforts to make NSW solicitor-general Alfred Stephen, Edmund Barton, John Howard and Pauline Hanson proud with his calls for a “final solution to the immigration problem”.

White for Australia’s bleached news media landscape. White for the blinding racism of breakfast TV presenters talking to white guests about the need for another Stolen Generation, white for shlock jock who repeat racial slurs, white for cartoonists who demean black and brown people for fun and white for the cynical, money-hungry newspaper editors and owners who defend them. White for the hateful hypocrisy of free speech campaigners who support the rights of neo-Nazis to intimidate and humiliate minorities but deny the right of a 9-year old girl to use her brain.

White for the cringeworthy nationalistic online polls carried out by our national broadcaster. White for the whitewashing of our history, education system, and entertainment industry. White for the rejection of the “black armband” view of history in favour of the “white blindfold”. White for the 2015 changes to the National Curriculum which boasted a “greater emphasis” on “our Christian heritage”, cutting many Indigenous issues. In Year 6 students learn about Australia Day but no longer about Harmony Week, Reconciliation Week or NAIDOC week. They are taught about the ANZACs but not about Pemulwuy or Jandamarra. White for the 82% of main characters in TV dramas who are Anglo-Celtic despite them making up only 67% of the population.

White for the never-ending bipartisan consensus that othering, demonising, imprisoning, and torturing refugees and asylum seekers is a legitimate way to govern the country.

Australia today.
There's a greater outcry from the media about a young girl not standing for our crappy National Anthem than there is for a young girl we are leaving to die on Nauru.

The Australian flag is blue.

Blue for the sadness of Aboriginal communities and their allies at the aggressive denial of our history and belligerent pride in our present.

Blue for the fact that Aboriginal people are the most incarcerated on the planet.

Blue for the 10-year-old Aboriginal girl who killed herself in far north Western Australia in 2016, blue for the 11-year-old Geraldton boy took his own life in 2014, and blue for all Indigenous children who are nearly nine times more likely to commit suicide than non-Indigenous children. Blue for the much higher rates of infant mortality, malnutrition, hospitalisation for chronic diseases, disability, self-harm, unemployment, and overcrowding for Indigenous Australians, and blue for their much lower rates of education, income, and life expectancy.

Blue for another stolen generation. Aboriginal kids represent 5.5% of Australian children aged 0-17 but 35% of those in out of home care, a total of 17, 664 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids, compared to about 9,000 when Kevin Rudd said sorry.

Blue for the boys and girls we keep in island concentration camps who suffer from ‘resignation syndrome’ and are ‘begging to die’. Blue for the severely depressed 14-year old boy with severe muscle wastage after not leaving his bed for four months, and blue for the girl who tried to self-immolate. As Australia clocks up new crimes to compound our bloody past, it’s often said we are better than this.

Better than the genocide and the stolen generations.

Better than the police brutality and the deaths in custody.

Better than the white supremacy and the final solutions.

Better than the concentration camps and the torture.

I’m not sure we’ve ever been better than this. These crimes are woven into the fabric of our flag. But we could be.

In fact, this country has many virtues, it’s just that the ugly white nationalism, born of our colonial history, nurtured by our political leaders, and symbolised by our flag and anthem, is not one of them.

If we’re serious about being better than this, we must follow the lead of those most affected by our crimes.

Despite surviving centuries of massacres, genocide, dispossession, child theft, incarceration, humiliation and disrespect, with unimaginable strength, dignity, patience, and grace, Aboriginal people came together in May 2017 to issue the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This was just the latest in a long line of attempts to make peace with their oppressors.

They sought “constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country”. They sought “the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution”. They sought “a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations and truth-telling about our history”.

Their oppressors told them to get stuffed. Again.

Despite over five years of imprisonment and torture on Manus Island, engulfed at times by riots, deaths, murders, self-harm, violent and sexual assaults and shootings by PNG soldiers, Kurdish Iranian writer Behrouz Boochani used WhatsApp and text messages to write a bestselling book about his experience called No Friend But the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison. He calls on Australia to undergo a moral revolution.

The current Australian flag has no place in this political and moral revolution. Take down the red, white and racist flag and hoist up a new one representing the best of modern Australia.

Raise a flag not as a cape of imperialism stitched together by violence, but one which 9-year old girls can be proud to stand for and young artists like Australian Poetry Slam winner Solli Raphael can be proud to rhyme for.

Raise a flag not as a white male appendage but one which truly embraces Australia’s gender, sexual, and racial diversity, one which celebrates activists like Shukufa Tahiri, a refugee advocate named amongst Australia’s 100 most influential women.

Raise a flag not as a smoke signal of nationalist capitalist patriarchy, but a kite which gives flight to a new, inclusive sense of nationhood based on social and environmental justice.

Raise a flag not as a conditioned stimulus for refugee trauma, but as a conditioned response of empathy and kindness.

Raise a flag not as a small-pox laden blanket for a 60,000+ year-old people, but a beacon of a new relationship based on healing and justice.

After all, the 230-year Indigenous resistance struggle can teach us all we could possibly need to know about activism and courage in the fact of white supremacy.

For over two centuries we have decimated, denigrated, and desecrated the world’s oldest surviving culture.

For over two decades we have tortured and tormented some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Enough.

Treaty now.

Close the camps.

Bring them here.

Last year, Aboriginal people gave white Australians a gift we did not deserve. With the Uluru Statement they lit a candle in the underground cave of our nation.

For the sake of an ancient culture in need of justice and a new culture in need of redemption, we must walk together towards that light.

Australians all let us rejoice for our land is home to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, whose true colours are actually worth standing for.

Your comments about my country are deeply offensive to me, Squire.

Is there anything good about Australia? Or is it just all bad?

This is what I hate about the Left: everything the white man has done has been bad. Western civilization is inherently evil, yadda yadda yah; meanwhile people like Greggy try to devalue Australia by making unrealistic claims about rape in Australia in comparison to a nation that is almost a failed state with one billion people and where women are routinely raped, murdered and tortured.

Not at all, that's a strawman argument.

My point was that criticism of a country has to be based on reality and not on what you wanted it to be. Australia is not perfect, but to say that it's as bad as the Congo or India is simply being disingenuous.

To say especially that Australia is a racist country when I have never been on the receiving end of racism all my life, and have benefited from Australian society and its institutions is simply offensive to me.

There is a lot of racism in Australia, just about all comes from the religious. Humans who don't believe in bullshit and elitism, only see what a person is, not what they claim to represent and or believe.

Sadly for you, living in a disney land mentality, you're no different to the ideologues you denounce and vise versa. I speak the truth about the world situation and religion, you're welcome to hide in your little box of day dreams steeped in denial. However reality can't be stopped and will roll over all who stands in its way.

There is no good in any ideology, they are all racist, elitist, bigoted and deranged. Unless someone can name an ideology that has benefited the planet and all it's life forms.

Everything is ideological Dax. You hold an ideology, and I hold an ideology. I would say I'm more conservative than the average Australian, but I'm not religious, and purely secular.

Of course as an ideologue, you reject anyone different and claim they are the same as you. To have an ideology you have to believe in or support the delusionary concepts presented by the ideological elite and it depends on your programming, as to which ideological version you accept and support.

Some one like me, has no allegiance nor acceptance of any ideal put forward by ideology, we base the evolution of our lives on the future and reality of today. If you have a non ideological future planned, don't have any problem seeing through the delusions presented by the elites, then it is easy to stay ahead of the pack.

If I had belief, it would be in the evolutionary process of the universe, it's natural outcomes and walking with that through life, nothing material, psychological or spiritual. Which to me is an evolution from the animist origins of ancestors culture.

Racism is ingrained in every ideologue, you see it every day. They all claim to be non racist but when they are confronted by the reality, their trues colours always shine through the thin veil of illusion, ideologues hide behind throughout their lives.

I dont get what u mean by a strawman argument, r u saying its ok to judge another country because u read a article about the country any articles about our country is just negative propaganda, and bedside's u have never seen any racism in your life in Australia....... wow :purple

Of course you've never received racist comments or seen racism in action, which could relate to your inability to see any thing outside your fairy tale existence.

I see racism every day, at work, in the street and in every aspect of life. It's no different to any other country I've visited it's just the magnitude which differs. Only fools and those in deep denial don't see it everywhere and mostly carried out by those who claim to be non racist.

This forum is a wonderful example of the racist hypocrisy seen throughout ideological society. On one hand they denounce racism and then on the other, they denounce Aus indigenous because of the way some live and that way of life, is the one forced upon them by the racist christian, islamic, jewish invasion. It continues today as they force destructive diets, lifestyles and living conditions upon the indigenous people.

Those who claim they are not racist, are racist and those who denounce what they perceive as racist from their ideological point of view, are just as racist when put to the test. Note those on here that claim to by anti racist, then throw racist abuse at others, or claim they know more about indigenous culture than indigenous, which just reflects the depth of their elitist racism and state of mentality.

yes I've been on the receiving end of racism a few times when ive interacted with our indigenous population, but no worse than the racism I hear from my peers about them.
I've always stated I'm racist. I cant help it , I see a different colour of a person and my first thought is a judgement on who they r. Of course my reasoning takes over and I give myself a mental bitch slap.
I pretty well copy my parents reactions that I grew up with and I wish I didn't have them. I guess time can change things :)

Human difference is a natural thing on the on earth it's ideologies which proclaim they are superior and you find that in every race. It's understandable you respond to the ideological triggers you've been indoctrinated with, the fact you recognise that and fight against it, is a sign your understanding has grown beyond that programming, yet the triggers still cut in. It's no different to others in the same position, difference always makes us sit up and wonder. It's how quickly we override those triggers which determines whether we are racist or not and those override their initial thoughts, are not real racist.

Time is an ideological concept, not real, there is only the past and now. The future is only determined by ourselves and nothing else, making changes today, means you are creating a real future. Free thinking minds, know they have gremlins in their minds that need to be addressed and do, the time bit comes in when we look for excuses to not change, reverting to ideological denial of our true reality.

Wonderful example of how a true heavily programmed cloned religious nutter sees the world, deeply racist, bigoted and way past your evolutionary use by date.

There is only racism and sexism, within ideological societies and they are a paramount aspect of the beliefs, which purely evolve around elitism, suppression, denial and discrimination.

Racism and sexism isn't merely recognising that someone is different.

well my first reaction is to judge them on their race not recognize they r different…. Like they will rip me off or they r dirty or haven't a job.
I guess it's a bit the same with me and sexism , although my fantasies on a woman's sexuality might be more a biological thing.
I don't see a woman and think she would make a great maid , or maybe I surround myself with strong character women and sexist thought's doesn't enter my head (or im delusional or both) :purple

I grew up among maoris. They are one of the reasons I left NZ.
Whites have made the overwhelming majority of all inventions and discoveries.

Imagine an earth where Whites have never existed.
Abbos had a life expectancy of about 36 when we arrived.

I couldn't imagine the life expectancy of English sailors to be very high then or the prisoners that came in the first fleet (all white id presume)
