To be discriminated against because of your race you must look, sound, and behave like a specific race. If you look, sound, and behave like a Caucasian person it is extremely unlikely you will be assumed to be an Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person or that you will suffer discrimination on the basis of that assumption.
I attended school in Cairns in the 1970s and worked as a DSS Field Officer in the ‘80s and ‘90s where I met many hundreds of ATSI people, none of whom looked remotely like Professor Brenda Croft, (Art of war: ‘I’m not the right type of Aborigine’, 24/07).
Watching Professor Croft on YouTube confirmed that she looks, sounds, and behaves like a Caucasian person and nobody who knows ATSI people would assume her to be any type of ATSI person, much less the wrong type.
With so much money now being given to ATSI people we really should start doing our due diligence to confirm a person claiming to be ATSI looks, sounds, and behaves ATSI and isn’t simply claiming to be ATSI based on a distant ancestor.
Having a drop of ATSI blood in a majority Caucasian bloodstream does not lead to any form of discrimination but it seems to have become an excuse for accessing taxpayers’ money intended for those who are unmistakably ATSI.
CP – To comment on “Scorched earth future”, 24/07 GCB – To comment on “Alarm at forecast”, 24/07 CM – To comment on “50c+ days, scorch heatwaves ahead”, 24/07 -
As a physicist who can prove from first principles that carbon dioxide cannot trap heat and that it and all other atmospheric gases serve to transfer solar heat from the planet’s surface back to space, I despair at the gullibility of the miseducated masses who quiver in fear at forecasts as wildly wrong as those contained in the political IPCC’s RCP8.5, (“Scorched earth future”, 24/07).
RCP8.5 isn’t even supported by the research it purports to represent and is a fiction contained only in the Summary for Policymakers. In fact, if you go to Table 12.12 in Chapter 12 of the IPCC’s AR6 report at this link, www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg1/downloads/report/IPCC_AR6_WGI_Chapter12.pdf, you’ll find a list of often-repeated frightening climate claims for which there is no evidence whatsoever. They include river floods, heavy precipitation and pluvial floods, landslides, drought (all types), severe wind storms, tropical cyclones, sand and dust storms, heavy snowfall and ice storms, hail, snow avalanche, coastal flooding, and marine heat waves.
Climate alarmism is now and always has been nothing but political hot air designed to give ultimate power to an unelected few.
