The only #SystematicRacism that exists is in the race-industry!
Degenerates in search of a cause:
Julia, a 51-year-old white Australian from Woollahra, was attending her first protest about Indigenous issues, though she had previously rallied for climate change and asylum seekers.
Same old shiite.

You get what you pay for. We are paying for you lot, not the other way ’round.

Here’s something you won’t read in the media –
Indigenous people make up 3.3% of Australia’s total population, yet:
– Indigenous people commit 15.7% of homicides
– 20% of Indigenous Australians experience domestic abuse in the household.
– 25% of children who are sexually or physically abused are Indigenous.
– Indigenous children are 7.5 times more likely to be victims of child sexual or physical abuse (this figure is tragically underreported in the Indigenous community).
– Illicit drug use by indigenous people is twice as high as that of the general population.
– 28% of all indigenous people have used illicit drugs in the past 12 months. Compare that to just 13% in the general population.
Mentioning statistics isn’t racism. It’s fact.
Racism will sadly always exist, but the myth that systemic racism dominates the Australian culture of today is an outright lie.
People cite that the over-policing in Indigenous areas results in a higher incarceration rate. This is true, but it’s not a factor of race. As I’ve stipulated, Indigenous communities have higher rates of crime and therefore an increased police presence in these areas is not racist, it’s just common sense and simply efficient policing.
Wondering why they are overrepresented in Australian prisons? It’s because the statistics demonstrate that they commit more crime. Never forget that those who suggest their incarceration figure should reflect the Indigenous population of Australia (3.3%), are trampling on the graves of the many Indigenous people who are the victims of sexual, physical, domestic and substance abuse.
So why is it that I’m posting this? It’s for the sake of the people breaching COVID restrictions today putting themselves and the rest of the country at risk. It’s for the sake of the Australian businesses whose operation WILL be stopped or damaged in some way by these protests. And it’s for the sake of these misguided protestors who are giving up their time based on a false media narrative.
Perhaps we should focus on the two real issues facing society being the heinous police brutality inflicted equally upon ALL races in this country and the disappointing crime statistics that continue to occur in the Indigenous community today, whether that be due to historical racism, cultural issues or socio-economic factors.
The first step starts with ending the myth that the Australian law enforcement of today is driven by systemic racism, because victimisation doesn’t solve a single thing.
Signs, many painted in the Aboriginal flag, included “No pride in genocide”, “Aus is not innocent” and “Racial injustice is a global pandemic”.
