Livelyup, g'day mate,
Do you know where I could find a copy of that classic 70s flick "The Boxing Kangaroo"? I've been looking all over for it but all I can find is this second-rate rip-off called "Kangaroo Jack" or something.
Anyway, back to the topic: of course you have a point, however my point was basically this, the drunken cracker is a lot less likely to act on his racist impulses if he knows that there's a unified group of Black people ready to blow his head clean off as soon as he makes any funny moves.
Also, it would be a priority for white people to work towards changing the sick mindstates of their fellow white people, but that cannot be a priority for Black people, our priority must be self-defense, self-determination and unifying with one another first of all. What white folks want to think privately is of no concern to us as long as they don't have the power to act on it, and the more unified we become, the less power they will have to act on it.
And now a serious question (probably worthy of another post in keeping with adam's ideas on netiquette): Do you know anything about the outcome of those Redfern riots over your way, and more generally do you know of any organizations run by aboroginal people of a progressive/revolutionary mindset, who might have a website or something to check out? And were you aware that John Howard is under a kangaroo-bone curse... any updates on his (hopefully failing) health?
Hope all those crises in your personal life you have alluded to aren't getting you down. I've had a few in mine too. Two ex-fiancees now. Well at least I'm still good friends with both of them.
