Ok Harry, I will explain why. But I am not going to deconstruct every post and explain why because it is time consuming and I very much doubt that time is well spent as I have great doubt that you actually want to know.
If you really are interested, you need to work to develop this awareness for yourselves. I recommend watching jane elliot's 'blue eyes brown eyes' to begin to build your awareness of racial discrimination, generalisations and stereotypes.
Ok, here we go...
"Have you been to Africa? The black people there are GREAT."
1. This is a generalisation, 'the black people there are great'. It implies all black people in africa are great which is obviously false.
2. It has an implicit message: 'the black people there are great', implication, the black people here are not. Thus he compares one race with another and implies one race is superior- 'great'- while the other is not. He goes on to further 'prove' this point:
"They can't believe the condition of our aboriginals when you tell them the subsidy they get for being aboriginals... If those village guys had that kind of start in life they would be very well off indeed".
1. Assumption 'if those village guys had that kind of start in life they would be very well off indeed'. This is an unproven, unsupported claim and impossible to prove as they have a completely different 'start' in life.
2. Generalisation; every African person would be very well off.
3. Another implicit message: 'these kinds of people (Africans) are better than those kind of people (Aboriginals) because these kinds of people would do 'better' than those kind of people under the same circumstance'. Again, an attempt to 'prove' that one race is superior to another, which makes it a racially discriminatory comment.
So that's why the statement is lacking in terms of quality argument and is also racially discriminatory. You can start deconstructing arguments for yourselves by just looking at the posts on this topic to see the stereotypes, generalisations and racially discriminatory comments present.
To me, it refers to the obvious and recognised cultural differences between Africans and Aborigines, as well as the effects on Aboriginal motivation and work ethic of decades of flawed social policy. Just because you are paranoid about racism doesn't mean that everyone who disagrees with you on race issues is a racist that's leading us towards a second holocaust, Arry.
If you wish to help Aborigines, you are going about it the wrong way. The situation Aborigines are in is a grim reality with hard, uncomfortable truths - you seem too sensitive to even tolerate other
people looking at the issue in a politically incorrect fashion. Out in the real world, a lot of people call it as they see it, even if it is uncomfortable or unpalatable - with little care for the claustrophobic, isolated world of left-leaning social thought.
