Giving racism an Aussie voice

Our beloved country under Labor’s proposed ‘Voice’ will become one gigantic apartheid state. Australia will boast apartheid and racial segregation from Broome to Ballina, from Cape York to Cockle Creek.

Racism, rather than mateship, is to be our overriding creed.

As former Fraser minister Neil Brown suggests, when the qualification for being part of a body such as the ‘Voice’ can be reached only by members of one race, the Aboriginal race, all other races are excluded. That is racism.

Ramesh Thakur reminds us, ‘It will be impossible to put the genie of racialised identity back in the bottle, ever.’ He goes on to quote US Chief Justice John Roberts, who said: ‘The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.’

It is a sentiment that was beautifully articulated by actor Morgan Freeman back in 2005 – before the Left decided to weaponise America’s dormant racial animosity as a modern political tool. Freeman silenced 60 Minutes host Mike Wallace who said, ‘Black history month you find…?’

‘Ridiculous,’ replied Freeman.

When asked why, Freeman added, ‘You’re going to relegate my history to a month? What do you do with yours? Which month is “white history month”? Well, come on, tell me?’

After Wallace clarifies that he is Jewish, Freedman continues, ‘Okay, which month is “Jewish history month”?’

‘There isn’t one.’

‘Oh… Do you want one? I don’t either. I don’t want a black history month. Black history is American history.’

Perplexed, Wallace asks, ‘How are we going to get rid of racism?’

‘Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.’

Morgan Freeman was right. Racism only exists if people say racist things and keep obsessing about race in every aspect of their lives. There is only one American history and there is only one Australian Constitution. Unfortunately, the prism of race has become a default setting thanks to the relentless push of the modern Left to foment racial hatred and instil grievances in order to garner votes.

Remember Joe Biden’s, ‘if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black’ sneer?

We are at the point where the conversation about race has gone beyond parody and descended into outright lunacy. Time keeping is racist. Maths is racist. Golf balls are a product of colonial exploitation. It’s a miracle teachers are still allowed to write on blackboards with white chalk.

This absurdity has a darker side, such as white students being restricted in common spaces of some American colleges to avoid something called ‘white violence’. In Nigeria, white models have been banned from advertisements. And when it comes to the downright terrifying, groups in South Africa are walking around openly shouting, ‘Kill the Boer, kill the farmers!’ This is a call to murder based on race.

In Australia, we are blessed to have largely escaped racial violence and extreme racial tensions, but for how much longer? This is what concerns me.

The last few years have seen increasing agitation about race in this country. Under Labor, these racial differences could soon be enshrined in our Constitution. We are doing the very opposite of what Morgan Freeman and John Roberts advised.

Instead of ceasing our conversation about race, we have made it the number one national priority. It is all we talk about. Indeed, we are being forced to talk about it and everyone will have to keep talking about it in the lead-up to, during, and after the referendum – whatever the result.

Australia will end up talking about race forever.

This is not the path to reconciliation. I fear it is the beginning of a new Australia. An Australia that judges its citizens by the sins of their ancestors and colour of their skin. An Australia redefined through race and underpinned by a re-writing of history, malicious myth, untruths, propaganda, and parasitic activism that helps no one except itself. Even the ABC fact checkers had to admit that the often cited claim that Indigenous Australians were covered by the flora and fauna act – which did not classify them as human beings, and only changed when the Constitution was amended following the 1976 referendum – was a myth.

The ABC’s Stan Grant even managed to turn our most famous historical poem into a story of race, ‘I love a sunburned country, a land of sweeping plains, of rugged mountain ranges. It reminds me that my people were killed on those plains. We were shot on those plains, disease ravaged us on those plains.’

This hyper-racialised future that pits Australia’s children against each other from the earliest age based on their skin colour, will be a scar on our politics.

I am interested in writing short stories for my pleasure and my family's but although I have published four family books I will not go down that path again but still want what I write out there so I will see how this goes
