Aboriginal rapper Adam Briggs claims that our
National Anthem needs to be changed because
"The Song Sucks." He's taken the words of the
anthem apart sentence by sentence and claims
that words like - "young and free,"ignores
Aboriginal heritage. 11 State of Origin stars
also refused to sing "Ädvance Australia Fair,"
before the series opener.

There are many people it seems, not only
our Indigenous people, who object to this
anthem not representing them and want to see
either the words changed or a new anthem found.
One that would be more inclusive. We've had this
anthem for decades - should we change it or get a
new one, or keep it as is?

Your thoughts please?

I think welcome to my own country sucks actually. This 'rapper' obviously does not mind taking tax payer money via the vile abc to line his pockets and enjoy the benefits of colonisation. Of course the abuse of women and kids at epidemic levels among his own people doesn't stop the virtue signalling. Lefty academics have obviously been able to transfer their hate of decency on to this character along with the rest of the victim industry. Thank God for decent people like Jacinta Price who actually care about her own people rather than the lowlife leftist ideologues.

runner,

So you don't approve of the rapper, or the ABC
or Aborigines in general?

Okay.

What about the subject of this discussion -
our national anthem? - what are your feelings on
our Indigenous people's objections - do they have
any valid objections? What are your thoughts on
that? That's what this discussion is about.

Some time activist actions do more harm than good, this is such a move
We have a long way to go, but have come a very long way
IF activists want to get behind a very much needed change this is it
Find out how the rights to the Aboriginal flag became private property, insist it be made free, so all could share it
Or as with the red cross, see another come about fast

Dear Belly,

It seems that objections are being raised to
our anthem - Ädvance Australia Fair," because
some Indigenous people are claiming the words
of the Anthem do not reflect them.

'What about the subject of this discussion -

Do we then take into account objections from Chinese, muslims, greeks, italians, Christians, Buddhist? I am opposed to those who have made great gains by victimhood (aboriginal activist) gettings such a large say on 'OUR' abc. They do far more to divide and destroy this country than to bring it together.
