In conversations with people lately, the word accountability keeps coming up.
Australian’s want to help each other out, they care about their fellow man but they also want them to be accountable for their behaviour.
You may consider yourself ‘your brothers keeper’ but that doesn’t mean you are to blame for their behaviour.
But that’s what the BLM movement will have you believe. If you are white, the problems in black communities is your fault simply because of your skin colour.
Well, here’s some inconvenient truths.
The substance abuse problems in Aboriginal communities are not my fault – they’re not yours either. Nor are we responsible for the violence, child abuse, terrible health outcomes, lack of education or squalor in many of these communities.
If we are (collectively) guilty of something it is throwing $30 billion dollars a year at a problem hoping it will go away while not holding people accountable.
But as a white man, I’m not supposed to have an opinion on how my taxes are being wasted on futile programs.
The BLM BS running in this country is being imported by a bunch of people who care nothing for the actual problems in Aboriginal communities and how we can actually solve them.
Believe it or not, it suits many of these activists to have continuing systemic failure in outcomes for Aboriginal people. After all, it’s a $30 billion per year business and the money always ends up in someones pocket….just seemingly not in the communities where it matters.
But it’s not just here where a few inconvenient truths need to be spoken by those with courage.
I don’t care about the political or identity stripes of Lemon, or Price or anyone else prepared to speak truth to the current narrative of victim culture in black communities. I just thinks it’s time we stopped apologising for sins of the past that none of us are responsible for and had a decent conversation about what’s really happening.
Wouldn’t it be much better to focus on rectifying the sins of today and we could start by acknowledging, that in many black communities, they aren’t being committed by white people.
