Shaoquett Moselmane at China's biggest orphanage for disabled childrenHumanitarian deeds define Shaoquett Moselmane’s stretch as a parliamentarian

Shaoquett Chaher Moselmane thrives in the common good as an Australian politician, a member of the New South Wales Legislative Council since 2009. His stretch as a politician has been defined by deeds and not words alone. He has intertwined his political calling with humanitarian deeds, one after another. I have known Shaoquett since 2012 […]

MISS DHU – we must be relentless in demanding change

On August 4, 2014 I was phoned by family members of Ms Dhu. Only hours before the phone call, Ms Dhu had passed away at the unnatural hand of racism. Some will argue racism did not kill Ms Dhu but I am of the view racism did. The 22-year-old, had she lived would have been […]

Hellenes should not aspire to racist White Privilege

As an Australian born and bred Greek, with Jewish, Palestinian, northern African heritage, I grew up in the inner western suburbs of Sydney during the 1960s and 1970s. The colour of my skin galvanised White Privilege in often alienating me, regularly ridiculing. The consistency of low blows echoed hauntingly. Even to a young child’s mind […]

There may need to be a Great Migration of Black peoples out of Western Australia and the Northern Territory or some sort of revolution. Wherever there are significant Black population masses throughout Australia so too is there pronounced racism – flaring and rampant. White anger rages at Black identity.

Image - Onya MagazineRacial divides are engineered – White privilege birthed White anger

It is mindboggling for the many corralled within the whims of this nation’s miring racism – a knee-deep racism – when the majority of White Australians, and laced with hostility, deny this nation’s vice-like racism. We are living serious-impact national discussions that mire this nation deeper in both institutional and the ugliest forms of racism. […]

Yes, there is a second Stolen Generations – and it is worse

Some argue that there is no second Stolen Generation because there is no longer a prescribed policy that children should be removed on eugenic based reasoning. The argument today is that there is no longer an assimilate or perish agenda but go tell that to the thousands of families who have had their children removed […]

Where are these hundreds of services in communities? Show me!

We often hear the claim that there are scores of services, many that duplicate what others do, in remote and regional Aboriginal communities. This reinforces the myth that some communities are ‘over-funded’. For instance, Roebourne in Western Australia’s Pilbara is said to have 67 service providers with over 400 programs for less than 1,200 residents. […]

Nearly one in three suicides of Australia's children (aged 5 to 17) are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children - "the nation should weep," Gerry GeorgatosOvercoming Indigenous Disadvantage – for the poorest 40 per cent it is catastrophically worse

Not even the latest Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage report released today can describe how grim the reality is for the poorest 40 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. There is no hiding the dramatic increase in incarceration and suicide rates but it is even worse if we disaggregate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders […]

They deserve every hope - Photo, Gerry GeorgatosHalf-lives – half the population lives less than 50 years of age – the nation should know

Nearly half the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population living below the Henderson Poverty Line are living half-lives. There are terrible lies told that life expectancy is significantly improving and the gap on this front is closing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. But in 2014, half of Western Australia’s Aboriginal male deaths were aged […]
