By Bill Calcutt, published 29/6/2020

The global resurgence of the Black Lives Matter campaign reminds Australians of the ongoing disproportionate rate of incarceration of indigenous people in this country.

If people, black or white, don't commit crimes, they will not be incarcerated. People in jail are not there because they are black or white; they are there because they are criminals

the ongoing disproportionate rate of incarceration of indigenous people in this country.
Bill Culcutt,
Simple looking into the situation will reveal that there is a disproportionate rate of crime committed by indigenous also so, it's only logical that their representation in custody is following pace !
btw, you too obviously made a career out of stirring this pot ?
Most of us acknowledge the wrongs of the past hence the focus & work on trying to close that gap that the indigenous want to stay open. The reasons are as obvious as Day & night !

If people were to spend 2 days in many Aboriginal communities (that white academics and activist insist must exist and be funded) they would see clearly why so many are incarcerated. Domestic violence, child abuse, drugs, truancy, stealing, pay back is rampant. To go to prison is a part of becoming a 'man' for many of the young guys. The author here just adds to the problems for again failing to address any of the true causes of incarceration. The blackfellas in many cases are far less troubled about being in gaol then any of us are. I would estimate over 90% of aboriginals are brought up without their biological father. As the late Bill Leak highlighted many don't even know their father. White academics love to rewrite history and pretend that pre settlement was a lovely place for the first people. I doubt any young girls set aside for uncles would agree. THe myth of paradise will continue and real issues ignored.

Runner.

On the mark with a qualifier.

The outcome you so correctly highlighted, is never more sheeted back to aboriginal culture, than recognising the last tribe of Aboriginals without prior contact with white settlement, was located in the Western desert of SA in 1964.

The remnant tribe consisted of women and children; no men at all.

The question was asked of them through an interpreter, where are the men?
Answer: the men were on walkabout scouting for other wives.

So what has changed, and what is likely to change? Obviously nothing in regards to monogamy.

Bill Culcutt thinks that white Australian society he chooses to live in, which is based upon Christian values, democracy, and fee markets, is absolutely awful. Even though it is so awful that every single year, around two million people clamour to join us through immigration, whether we want them or not.

1. The reason why "aboriginal" people are jailed more than others, Bill, is because they commit so much violent crime. Instead of blaming white Australia, why don't you tell aborigines to try and behave themselves?

2. The coming of the British was the best thing that ever happened to indigenous people in 50,000 years, especially aboriginal females. If Australia had not been settled by whites this would jut be another bankrupt, black ruled basket case nation holding out the begging bowl to the rest of the world.

3. The White Australia Policy was the correct policy and if Australia had a non discriminatory immigration policy, we would now be looking at a civil war, which is now brewing in Europe and the Divided States of America.

4. There will always be inequality because people are simply not equal. They are not equal in trustworthiness, loyalty, brains, responsible behaviour, or maturity. If you want absolute equality,Bill, then lets dispense with all licenses for everything.

5. With one Labor Muslim politician sacked for taking Red China money and another now under investigation for espionage, thinking that immigrants totally dispense with their tribal, ethnic, racial, or religious loyalties the instant their big toe hit Australian soil is insanity.

If you believe in Human Induced Climate Change, Bill, all you have to do is prove it exists. Most Australians do not want "refugees" (actually, illegal economic migrants) and that was why Labor was unceremoniously turfed out in the last Federal election. The HREOC organisation is as politically partisan as the ABC. It is chock a block full of socialite socialists like you, who have adopted a barmy and already failed ideology that is going to destroy Australian society.

After you have wrecked Australia, Bill, where are you going to run to?
