Watching Ruddock on TV talking about how apartheid in S.A. made him feel proud of Australia and it’s wonderful ~diversity~.
Yeah matey. Apartheid was awful. But are you going to ignore the fact that in large swathes of Australia even today there is still de facto segregation? And rampant racism. Not to mention that up until the late 1970′s you were literally stealing Indigenous children??? Yeah, so proud of our history.
The one thing I can’t stand about Australians it’s the way they use S.A. as a measuring stick to show how “progressive” and “liberal” and “enlightened” Australia is.
Fuck that, pull your head out of the sand and recognise that S.A. now has a black indigenous government in power (and legalised same sex marriage…but that’s another issue haha). Meanwhile, us white Australians are still trying to get rid of the “Indigenous problem” (see WA right now…) and treat our first people like shit.
