It’s not casual racism. It’s full on in your face racism and the belief that blackfellas aren’t real people who deserve the same health care as people in the city. I’ve been posting here for years the BLM in Australia is health care. I know so many elders who died in remote communities because health care workers don’t care, don’t listen, don’t believe patients or don’t take the time to understand the language.

It’s so much more than churches though, our disregard for the arts in general. One band did- if you can’t beat them join them tour, and played after NRL games. So it’s hardly a unique issue.

It’s just that more people like sport than dancing in our culture 🤷🏼‍♀️

This is a wave of #blm that not enough people recognise. I AM SO SO SO SO GLAD THIS IS FINALLY BEING ACKNOWLEDGED. 

Plus the health care provided in communities is sub par to start with. I have lived the amount of mistreat and advocating people have to do to be taken seriously. I can tell you story after story of the horrors I’ve seen.

It’s particularly frustrating for an inner city white person to think they’re woke about Aboriginal community issues. You don’t know enough to shed light yet. Want to see change, start with committing to rights to access services. The right to access the internet to communicate would be a good starting place. Then maybe roads, then maybe over crowded housing, then maybe counselling for inter generational trauma, or a linguist in each community to ensure the continued rival of all languages. The negative reporting isn’t the solution to changing systemic issues, a call to action is. Cause let’s face it, black lives really only matter in the city at the moment.
