Peter Dutton doesn’t give a f*** about First Nations’ Australians, as he is playing politics over the Voice to Parliament. Everything for Dutton and his Liberal Party mates is about getting back in power. They see the Voice as an Anthony Albanese initiative and want to defeat it on this basis. Dutton represents everything that is rotten about the Australian political setup. Peter Dutton is a disgrace. The Voice is not a Labor Party initiative, it is an Indigenous Australia proposal. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is not about politics, it is about recognition and a seat at the table for First Nations people. It is time for the dickheads to get out of the way and let progress happen. Younger Australians are sick of their racist past and would like to see something done about respecting and empowering First Nations Australians.

“Peter Dutton blocked high-priority crime prevention grants for Indigenous communities as Home Affairs Minister in favour of less-worthy projects found to have favoured Coalition seats and which included protecting “expensive bowling greens”. “

Dutton As Leader Of The Opposition Is Disgraceful

The negative polls about the Voice referendum are generated by Newspoll. Who is Newspoll? Surprise, surprise it is News Corp- the rabid right wing Rupert Murdoch organisation. You know Fox News and Sky News Australia, those balanced objective LOL providers of news. Yeah, that company that was successfully sued for a billion dollars for lying about the 2020 election in America. Yes, we managed to export Murdoch over there, but unfortunately the tentacles remain wrapped around Australia as well.

We need some really powerful weed killer to root out the Murdoch press and media from our shores because they are still poisoning the atmosphere with their hate and lies.

“He didn’t go to Garma. He walked out of the Apology. With his approval rating already in the toilet, Peter Dutton foolishly continues to spawn discontent over an Indigenous Voice To Parliament, writes Belinda Jones.

FEDERAL OPPOSITION Leader Peter Dutton is being either deliberately divisive or simply doesn’t have the intelligence to occupy the position he holds as Leader of the Opposition.”

Newspoll & Dutton Delve Into Dark Recesses Of Australia

I bet that Newspoll are going out of their way to survey a true sample of the populace and not skewing it toward their natural audience of right wing, racist Australians. It is interesting that Dutton and the No vote campaigners are asking to have the vote scrapped. If they are so confident of winning why not just let it play out? They want to make folk believe that the majority of Australians are against the Voice. I don’t think that this is true. I reckon that younger Australians will come out enmasse and defeat the negative No vote.

I think that News Corp and Dutton are desperately trying to hang onto an old version of Australia. The unfair, racist version of the country that plenty of us are sick of being ashamed of.

“As Peter Dutton addresses his decision to boycott the apology, it can be revealed  he shut down reconciliation initiatives while serving as Defence minister. By Karen Middleton.”

Robodebt disgrace: The legacy of the Coalition

Peter Dutton is a disgrace. Do we in Australia want to turn back the clock to a nastier time when racism was rife. Do we really want this f***wit representing this nation in any manner. The Voice is an opportunity to rectify a few wrongs when it comes to the treatment of First Nations Australians. Empowerment and respect for our Indigenous brothers and sisters will make Australia a better place to live.

Come on Australia shake off the shackles of racist scum like Peter Dutton and let’s move into a better future in the 21C.

Cultural & institutional Racism Exists in Australia – How does the credit rating system fare in relation to this?  – H3

Decisions within the credit rating system are made by human beings, as there is an arbitrary factor involved despite the mathematical presence of credit scores. Every person brings with them their attitudes, prejudices, and beliefs to everything they do in life. If Australians are brought up in families and communities that believe Aboriginal people are lazy and dishonest this infects the prevailing cultural attitudes toward Indigenous Australians. Generations of white Australians have promulgated these erroneous beliefs and slurs on First Nation’s peoples. Children have learned these things in schools and within sporting clubs and social groups. Young workers have been exposed to these prejudices in their workplaces via their bosses and workmates. Political parties have exploited these racist beliefs to get candidates elected and further promulgate bias based on them. Many Australians are immediately suspicious as soon as they see a black face, especially in predominantly white neighbourhoods. A dark skinned person is weighted down with the other’s projections of fear, disgust, and sometimes hatred. These instinctive reactions cannot be easily removed by laws and political correctness.

The credit rating system is largely secretive in how final decisions about granting or denying credit are made. There is a mathematical framework, where points are awarded and removed on the basis of the applicant’s financial interactions with participating lenders and businesses. However points are lost for unsuccessful applications for credit. What if an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander was denied a loan on the basis of the racial prejudice of the employee making that decision? This, then, goes on the credit file as a negative, dare I say black mark, this can cause a chain reaction of similar denials of credit for future loan applications. Institutional racism work this way, a silent procession of negative stamps shutting these individuals out of the system and the economy. Denied opportunities can result in things spiralling out of control. Anti-social behaviours are often the consequential outcomes and racists can have their beliefs confirmed about the negative stereotypes of Indigenous Australians.”
