Mundine - Australia "one of the most racist countries"

Post by adam »

Anthony Mundine has launched a stunning attack against "racist" Australia, calling for changes to be made to the Australian flag and national anthem.

Mundine on Friday called a press conference to clarify his earlier comments towards Daniel Geale, having on Thursday questioned the Tasmanian boxer's indigenous heritage.

But Mundine stopped short of apologising to Geale, saying his comments were purely directed at "the system".

"I apologise if my comments have offended some Aborigines in Tasmania. I know there are a lot of Aboriginals in Tasmania that are proud of their heritage just like me," Mundine said.

"There are people who get jobs and are claiming benefits who claim to be Aboriginal because they have a great-great-great-great grandmother or grandfather. That I think is wrong.

"I think the system needs to accomodate those Aboriginals that need it most rather than try and cater for everybody.

"Maybe there is a cut-off point or a scaling system where people with distant Aboriginal heritage receive assistance, but not as much as a first generation Aboriginal.

"I myself see myself as a leader of Aboriginal people in this country and I will continue to fight for the justice I see fit."

The boxer then labelled Australia as "one of the most racist countries" in the world.

"Basically everyone that comes here, a lot of my close friends and family members, we feel that Australia is one of the most racist countries here," Mundine said.

"The first thing I want to talk about is the flag.

"We've (Aboriginal people) never had any representation on the flag, yet I see representation of the Union Jack - something that symbolises the invasion, the murder, the pillaging and so on.

"It's dividing Australia rather than uniting it. For us Aboriginal people, the traditional owners of the land, we need to be represented on the flag. That's something I put to the government, to Julia Gillard and all the politicians.

"Right now, what that flag represents ... I can't fly it."

Mundine, who came under fire back in 2001 for suggesting the United States brought the September 11 terrorist attacks on themselves, also called for changes to be made to Advance Australia Fair.

"Anyone who does their research, there was a White Australia policy which lasted from 1901 to 1978 and that was the theme song," he said.

you can't beat positive discrimination!

but it's not politically correct to sugest the racism in this, pauline hanson was vilified for saying it.

This Mundine bloke would have to have the biggest chip on his shoulder. He would be one of the biggest racists I've ever seen. Can't wait to bring up the whitey card any time he can.

Geale already way out in front. I just hope when Mundine loses, he will acknowledge the fact.

only a grain? :shock:

For the record, pacquaio is awesome, best pound for pound fighter in the world, arguably EVER!!

His destruction of Hatton was awesome and horrible to see at the same time. My Dad went to vegas for the fight, he blinked and the fight was over. (Ok It was 2nd round, but you know what I mean).

I did use the key word "basically" - you do make some good points, but amongst it is some serious dribble :wink:

Pacquiao was/is a freak - absolute machine. Would have been great to see first hand, even if it was only 2 rounds. I remember watching that fight in a pub up in Darwin, by the time i finished a beer and started my second, it was all over! (Didn't stop me from consuming more than my fair share afterwards)

Clinical.
