Revisiting the ignorance of the early '60s

Are we to revisit the ignorance and hypocrisy of the early '60s?” writes Kevin Summers.

As I’ve repeatedly written, in the context of that era as one of full employment, “if only”.

Clearly, Kevin “What generation gap?” Summers – a baby boomer fuckwit from central casting – supposes his above question to be rhetorical. It is unfortunate, then, that he drops the uber-ignorant clanger of referring to “Koori artist Albert Namatjira”. I suspect that even the most redneck National Party MP would know that Namatjira was an Aranda/Arrernte man.

But those darkies; they’re all the same, aren’t they, Kev?

Outch! Just caught up with your words from a few years back. Happy to meet over a coffee ot stronger to discuss these matters. Suffice to say that Mick Dodson has been a mate of thirty years' standing ... and I've never had reason to ask him his mob. 0409 177 928
