Indigenous ABC comedy clip parodies white people

It’s no surprise that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has broken barriers in the far-left war on white Australians.

The ABC has released a comedy segment showing a group of Aborigines parodying a breakfast talk show by saying that “white people are c…s”.

The explicit clip was produced by the team behind the ABC’s Black Comedy program, and hosted on an ABC indigenous Facebook page, where it ­attracted mostly positive comments.

In the parody, indigenous comedian and writer Nakkiah Lui plays the host of an inane breakfast show called “Wake Up to Yourself”, joined by a panel of three indigenous experts and commentators.

“Earlier this week, beloved Aboriginal man Uncle Stevie in a press conference referred to white people as white c…s,” she says in the clip, in which the swear word is bleeped out. “This has sparked outrage in the white community, with many calling for the removal of his uncle ­status and a public apology.”

The first panellist replies: “I know a lot of white people. Warm, kind white people. And I say this with a lot of love, but white people are c…s.”

“I wouldn’t use words as strong as that, but I tend to agree. White people are c…s,” the second panellist says.

“Well, I’ve never actually met a white person, but I do agree. White people? They’re c…s,” ­responds the third. Read on…

Reader review of In This Vale of Tears

By Millicent on Goodreads

I don’t usually review books but I was lucky enough to win this book through Goodreads so I thought I would share just a few small thoughts on it.

I really enjoyed In This Vale of Tears, it is not usually the type of book I would read but I thought perhaps it was time to expand my book horizons, and I’m glad I did.

The characters where all interesting and developed well and I found myself really putting myself in their situations regardless of if they related to me or not. In saying that though, although it is heavily themed with Catholicism, you find much more out of it than just religion, as I think most of the issues that the characters are dealing with, most people would be able to relate to.

The imagery was beautiful and it was a reminded to me that I should be reading more books set in Australia.
Overall an enjoyable read!

Sydney in 1940

Huffington Post Australia has posted footage of Sydney and surrounds in 1939/40. The footage is compiled from reels of film discovered recently in a California garage. It is a sensational historical and social find, particularly for someone who grew up in Sydney at the time. I was four-years-old in 1950 and have a good memory of things.  There was not much change by 1950, except for the cars, of course. It was a time very different from now.  It was great to see footage of Manly baths, a popular destination for people living on the North Shore of Sydney, a place we often went to from our home in Lane Cove.

Free movement between Australia, New Zealand, Canada and United Kingdom

A proposal for free movement between Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom was proposed around three years ago. The agreement would be on the same sort of basis as the EU.  London Mayor Boris Johnson, a great supporter of the proposal, pointed out that the people of Australia and the United Kingdom could hardly be more alike culturally and ethnically.  Indeed, that is the central thrust of my just published book Prison Hulk to Redemption – all about the cultural foundations and continuities between the two blocks. This last week the proposal has had some more airing – much to my delight.
