Aborigines aren’t the only ones that require counseling

Aborigines weren’t the only wounded that needed counseling on sorry day. The white kids from small towns that had fringe dwellers were also in dire need. They grew up hating aborigines because they imitated the behaviour of their parents and have never recovered from their racism.

Small town aborigines were not allowed to visit the local swimming pool, movie house, or any white sporting venue (golf courses). They were also illegally burned out by Victoria police. In Swan Hill the police travelled into New South Wales and burnt the humpy towns behind the Federal Hotel (patrons used aboriginal women and children) and on the Willows. The families were without possessions or food and they were told to walk to Mildura.

My friend Gilbert Britten’s cousin walked into the Murray and drowned himself after the fire. Myself and several friends realised that THE POLICE BEHAVED ILLEGALLY AND SO WE DESTROYED THE POLICE BOAT ANCHORED NEAR THE TOWN. I have never lost my anger that occurs when confronted by injustice.

All the kids who grew up in towns with fringe dwellers have never lost the racism that stemmed from the experiences of their childhood.
