The Pot Callin’ the Kettle Black – I mean African American!

So, some Australian loser named Rudy decided to call Molly a racist because she wrote about me and called me a “Black lawyer” and referred to herself as a “Jewish Girl.” In fact, now he’s not even sure he wants to come to the good old U S of A because we’re sooooooooo racists.

WELL STAY YOUR BITCH ASS IN AUSTRALIA! (Australia gets pink because they're clearly a bunch of pussies).

Is it really news that Americans are racist? After all, aren’t we the land of the smallpox blanket and the home of Kunta? (insert crack of slavemaster’s whip here) OUCH! I mean Toby?

But for fuck’s sake. An Australian tryin to grandstand offends even my jaded sensibilities. The only country MORE racist than America is Australia! An Australian sayin that Americans are more racist is like the Aryan Nation sayin that the KKK is more racist. Want proof? Let’s take a look, shall we Mates?

BW (before whitey), Australia was a lovely land inhabited by Aborginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who lived traditional lifestyles and spoke hundreds of different languages. These peoples had amicable relationships with Asian and oceanic mariners and traders. Then came the white man.

After European contact, Australia became a penal colony for crazy white people who stole, raped, and pillaged. When the crazy white people were freed, they decided to become a nation and took all the land in the name of the crown.

Then they began killin up the indigenous people. Those they couldn't kill, they tried to assimilate by ripping children from their homes and sending them to live with white people. DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

When the Aboriginal peoples wanted their land back, the Australian court system said NO because the white people were there first (terra nullius), which was obviously a complete LIE. The Australian "in"justice system kept perpetrating that lie until the 1992 in Mabo v. Queensland where the court acknowledged aboriginal title for the first time (but they still didn't give the land back). That was a full 169 years AFTER the US courts recognized aboriginal title!

Oh, but that was back in 1992. They can't still be big fat racists, can they? But, of course they can!!! In 2000, the UN called the Australian government's treatment of Aborigines "racist" and said that it "seems like a throwback to attitudes 30 years ago." That's right kiddies, 30 year throwback! They were still rockin dashikis 30 years ago. So, let me know when you guys catch up Rudy! K?

Rudy thinks that mentioning race makes you racist. I, and a whole bunch of critical race theorists would agree, that ignoring race doesn’t make you less racist. It just makes you RETARDED! (Actually, retarded is too nice of a word because special people don’t mean any harm. Rudy does.)

Just because we over here in America like to define ourselves any fuckin way we want doesn’t mean that we’re automatically more racist than you. It makes us race-conscious – something you Australians apparently are NOT. But what can one expect from a nation that produced such treasures as Yahoo Serious, Crocodile Dundee, and Kylie Minogue?

If Rudy bothered to actually read Molly’s piece, he’d note that she NEVER said that she wasn’t racist. In fact, most of the piece was about how she wasn’t as political as someone like myself or her sister. What she said was that she struggles with her feelings about race on a daily basis, especially as someone who could choose to ignore race, much like good old Rudy, if she chose. What makes Molly different is that she’s honest with herself and actually up to the challenge. She’s trying not to live in a world with blinders on.

So Rudy, I’m sure my rant has not penetrated your strong sense of superiority – the fact of which will neither make me sad nor lose sleep tonight. However, you might consider some introspection. What about Molly’s piece incensed you so? Could you be projecting? Are you jealous? Do you need me to be your Black friend too?

When you throw stones at glass houses . . . uhhhh . . . when you smut a kettle . . . mmmmm . . . Eureka, I’ve got it! When you throw a boomerang, be sure you move out the way before is knocks you in the ass, bitch. Is that Australian enough for ya?

No one would ever accuse me of being a patriot, but I can honestly say that Rudy's blog entry made me feel not so grossed out to be an American (that's all I can muster without throwing up).

Thank you for your very well reseached and informative history of Australias woefull treatment of our Aborigines. As you stated early settlers killed many Aborigines in their effort to settle a new country.
Thankfully The Government of the time was not involved.
Unlike your country where the Army had a systematic policy of genocide. This ranged from outright massacres to germ warfare of giving out smallpox infected blankets.
http://www.wwcd.org/policy/US/UShistory.html#GENOCIDE
Infact the genocide of the American Indian is greater than the Jewish haulocaust. The early estimate of 15 million Indians killed in the settling of The USA far exceedes the genocide of any race in the history of the world.

Just goes to show "every thing is bigger in the USA"

Acutally, the saying is that "everything is bigger in Texas." I expected you to get that wrong too. Additionally, I'd hope that we'd have a bit more people to massacre than Australia. Our land mass is about 2 times that of Australia while our population is about 30 time larger. Also, I covered the small pox blanets. Additionally, many have called the assimilation policy against Aborigines a "genocide." Please see http://www.mun.ca/rels/restmov/texts/pp/PP101.HTM OR http://www.wsws.org/articles/1999/sep1999/geno-s07.shtml OR http://majic-angel3.tripod.com/spiritualmajic/id29.html. We could both site web authority, but the main point is that you cannot deny that you're country is no better than mine when it comes to policy against people of color. TRY AGAIN SUCKER!!!!

Okay, so you all might be interested to know that this American Indian actually lived in Australia for a year. And this is what I came away with...SAME SHIT DIFFERENT DECADE. Australia lags behind the US in Race and Race Relations by about 20+ years. Seriously. And by the US and Australia, I mean the white folks and their respective governments. In Australia, even the white folks hate each other. The English hang out with the English. The Scots hang out with the Scots. The Italians hang out with the Italians. The Irish hang out with the Irish... and they all equally despise one another and fight for superiority thru community soccer clubs. What they do have in common, however, is the same disease the US has. The difference between the US and Australia is what stage of the disease they are in. While neither country is even close to recovery,the US is getting prepped for surgery, while the Australians have just been told they have the disease.
In order for rudyzarsov to even get a hint of what I am talking about, all he has to do is read & understand the first three sentences of his own comments. First of all, Rudy, do the Aboriginals really identify themselves as belonging to you and yours ("our Aborigines"). Second, if the early Australian "settlers" (I think we all know they were prisoners) had to kill many Aboriginies to settle a "new country" was it in fact a "new country"? Third, but for the governments involvement, the white man would never have been imprisoned by his own people and sent off to someone elses home (The Aborinals you refer to as belonging to you). With the ties Australia continues to have to the British Empire, you cannot serioulsy believe "the governement of the time was not involved" in the killing of Aborigines. It was allowed, encouraged, and expected to happen, that is involvement and control, and hence, responsibility. What white folks in the US and Australia continue to misunderstand is that the ends do not justify the means. Molly is a white Jewish girl from the East Coast who is not afraid to talk about race and how it impacts her daily life, nor does she perpatrate that healing equals silence. White people who refuse to even talk about race stand in the shadow of becoming their ancestors, and I think we all know what your ancestors did, Rudy.

if you dont all fucking mind!
I am australian.
Proud of it - not really, as I had no choice in my birth origin.
Do not attribute the actions of governments past and present to me.
Some of us actually try to institute change for the better and not to the detriment of anyone unlike us
Problem with Australia is that assholes like rudy also live here

c'mon Dave your not an Aussy. If you were you would have called me an arsehole...not the american version...asshole.

Don't you think it's funny that when I point out what I see as wrong with something American, instead of arguing the point about my statement you all have attacked me and Australia?
Very typically an arrogant American reaction to critism.

One good thing though, at least no one told me to "go and fuck a kangaroo up the ass" which is the usual response when an American is critised.

It's no wonder that most of the world hates America.
