I had the time and the capacity to articulate my feelings on this new chapter of Bolt revolt.

After sitting at the computer screen for 15 minutes typing and then deleting a pile of emotional dribble, I provide you with the following links that I shall call Deadly Bloggers saying the shit that I can’t seem to say but wholeheartedly support:

Among the many race-obsessed expressions in his offensive, and now, unlawful, columns was the accusation that the defendants, all ”fair-skinned” Aboriginal people, claimed to be Aboriginal to receive certain benefits. As every person who has been raised by an Aboriginal parent knows, we must be ”twice as good as the white man” to finish school and get a job and suffer endless racist slurs while doing so from idiots who say things like, ”You don’t look Aboriginal. Why don’t you identify as white?”

What are our children and grandchildren to say to these fools? Deny their mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, and other family members because one of Bolt’s ilk is offended by their Aboriginal identity?
