AFL star and 2014 Australian of the Year Adam Goodes wants to help break down the boundaries between races and won't rest until all Australians are treated as equals.

The Sydney Swan was named Australian of the Year on Saturday for his leadership and advocacy in the fight against racism, both on the sporting field and in society more broadly.

The 34-year-old made it clear he'll be using the position as another platform to tackle racial vilification.

'My hope is that we as a nation can break down the silos between races, break down those stereotypes of minority populations,' the sportsman told the crowd at the Canberra ceremony. His mother Lisa, a member of the Stolen Generations, was among those at the event.

'The ultimate reward is when all Australians see each other as equals, and treat each other as equals.'

An indigenous Andyamathanha man, Goodes holds an elite place in AFL history with two Brownlow Medals and two premierships.

Oh! Marvellous! Mr Goodes wants racial equality for Australians. Now let's see him fight for equality by seeing to it that:

* Aboriginals get the same free legal service as every one else.

* Aboriginals being 15% of labour force by major contracts like Inpex is abolished and that everyone with work status can get a position regardless of race.

* Aboriginals don't get housing specifically set aisde for them only.

*permit system of non indigenous entering "indigenous lands" is abolished.

*Abstudy system is abolished and everyone gets "Austudy".

*Aboriginals aren't allowed to claim land anymore because it is "everyone's land".

FACEBOOK has shut down a racist Facebook page which vilified Indigenous Australians with revolting jokes and illustrations, despite earlier telling a complainant the page was acceptable under its 'community standards' policy. 
The Aboriginal Memes 2014 page was today shut down after a query from News Corp about why it failed to be classified as 'hate speech' under the social networking site's community standards policy.

It featured so-called jokes referencing the Stolen Generation and poverty among other issues too inflammatory to reference.

Facebook supplied a statement yesterday that said: "We remove content that is reported to us that violates our policies. Our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities that everyone agrees to when they create an account and which are linked to throughout the site explains what is and is not permitted on the site and explicitly prohibits hate speech."

But earlier the site had responded to a complainant with a statement that said: "We reviewed the page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards."

The action by Facebook today was similar to the site's response in 2012, when the social network shut down the page "Aboriginal Memes" when the Australian Communications and Media Authority announced it would investigate it after repeated complaints failed to have it closed.

And late last year, Facebook shut down Centrelink Memes following inquiries into why the page had been cleared of violating the social network's hate speech guidelines.

All three pages used similar graphics and text.

The latest Facebook racism controversy comes a day after footballer and anti-racism campaigner Adam Goodes was named Australian of the Year for his work combating racism.

In 2012, the Aboriginal Memes page become international news, with the Facebook page reported to be the work of a then 16-year-old Perth teenager. ;D :'( ;D :P

The Online Hate Prevention Institute has been leading the campaign against the online attacks on indigenous Australians, releasing a report in 2012 into the Aboriginal Memes site.

The institute report highlighted the unwillingness of Facebook to recognise comments as hate speech. ;D :'( ;D :'(

AUSTRALIAN of the Year Adam Goodes would have had no cause to point out the fan who called him an ape under the proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act. 
According to Amnesty International Australia’s legal spokeswoman Katie Wood, the Sydney Swans star “wouldn’t be able to make a complaint under the new proposal” if he was racially vilified like he was during the AFL’s Indigenous round last year.

“It would be a bit tricky,” Ms Wood told news.com.au.

“An ordinary person sitting on a bus who is racially vilified by somebody random wouldn’t have that spotlight available to them. That’s why it’s important that they have the opportunity to make a complaint through the Racial Discrimination Act.”

At the time, a shattered Goodes, of Indigenous descent, said his superb performance meant “nothing” after the racist taunt by a 13-year-old girl in the crowd.

“To come to the boundary line and hear a 13-year-old girl call me an ape is absolutely shattering,” an emotional Goodes said.
Earlier this week the Attorney-General George Brandis released a draft proposal to the Racial Discrimination Act, first imposed by the Whitlam government in 1975.

The Act hasn’t been updated since 1995 and the Abbott government feel like its time to spruce it up.

Mr Brandis argues the current laws amount to “political censorship”, while the proposed laws “are the strongest protections against racism that have ever appeared in any Commonwealth Act”.

“It is not, in the Government’s view, the role of the State to ban conduct merely because it might hurt the feelings of others,” he said.
The draft proposes to repeal Section 18C of the Act, which makes it unlawful for someone to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” a person based on the colour of their skin or their cultural background.

Within that section, the government wants to remove the words “offend, insult and humiliate”, while retaining “intimidate” and adding “vilify”.

Along with removing Section 18C, other sections are out to get cut, including 18D, which protects freedom of speech.

Section 18B, which allows race or colour as cause for hate speech, and 18E are also in the firing line.

But a sneaky passage has critics concerned.

The draft excuses “words, sounds, images or writing” in “the public discussion of any political, social, cultural, religious, artistic, academic or scientific matter”.

The issue with this, according to Ms Wood, is the difficulty the public could face proving a person was racially vilified.

“It’s protecting people who have the biggest mouthpiece, but not the ordinary person who gets insulted on a bus.

“What it is seeking to do is to deprive the ordinary person of an opportunity to hold to account the person who uttered the language in a way that’s accessible, that doesn’t place a burden on the courts and captures what it means to be racially vilified.

THREE bush MLAs threatening to bring down the Giles Government have aired extraordinary claims of racism against CLP colleagues, including the use of a highly offensive word to describe a “bad” Aboriginal woman.
The three have been largely silent since member for Namatjira Alison Anderson was suspended from the CLP parliamentary wing for her part in the ugly split, but last night spoke as a unified trio to indigenous broadcaster NITV.

Ms Anderson wiped away tears as she answered questions flanked by fellow bush MLAs Larisa Lee and Francis Xavier Kurrupuwu.

“We tried to rise above it, to not let it hurt you, but it does hurt you,” Ms Anderson said.

“There was an incident when Larisa and I was called ‘Lubra’.

“I’m 56 ... the last time I heard that word used was when I was 14 or 15 and it should not be used in our society today.”

Mr Kurrupuwu described being called “Frankie” — a shortened version of Francis.

“It’s inappropriate as a senior elder ... my people never use that word,” he said.

The trio did not single out which colleagues had used demeaning language.
Mr Giles could not be contacted last night, but told Channel Nine — before the NITV interview aired — that claims of racism was offensive and was brought on by the trio to “separate black and white”.

The split reached a head on Friday when Mr Giles suspended Ms Anderson and rejected a list of demands, including ministerial appointments for the trio and the sacking of Ministers Matt Conlan, Bess Price, Peter Chandler and Peter Styles.

The bush MLAs say they are sticking up for their electorates.

“I’ve basically given up because there’s no hope for Aboriginal people in this Party. There isn’t,” Ms Lee said.

“ ...“If we’re going to walk out ... that’s going to be the proudest moments of our life — to leave the Country Liberal Party, because we’re not breast-plated niggers. We’re homegrown traditional people.”

The CLP executive committee has put Ms Anderson’s CLP membership on ice, with a decision on her future expected in weeks.

Mr Giles said he had extended the olive branch to all three members and their futures within the CLP were up to them.

But last night’s interview will make any workable future difficult.

“We haven’t decided what to do yet, we’ll probably go to the cross benches, but we’re happy to stay as a trio,” Ms Anderson said.

Ms Anderson again called on Prime Minister Tony Abbott to intervene, a plea he has already rejected on the grounds it is a dispute between colleagues.

But Ms Anderson said the issue was wider and the plight of Territory aboriginals was better before self government.

TIWI Islander Cosmos Munkara is at the centre of a racial abuse storm after his first game for Longwood against Avenel in a Kyabram District Football League match in Victoria. 
Amazingly, an opposition player is alleged to have called the 18-year-old Bathurst Islander a “dirty, black, witchetty grub’’. ;D ;D ;D :-\That's being polite about it all really :-\ ;D ;D ;D ;D

Munkara, a former Waratahs and St Marys junior and brother of Tiwi Bomber James Puautjimi, was playing his first game for Longwood alongside two other Tiwis — Jason Puruntatameri and Hector Tipungwuti.

Longwood coach Matthew Chilcott, a century goalkicker with Waratahs in the NTFL, is furious at the racist remarks allegedly aimed at Munkara during the third quarter.

“I’m really pissed off it could happen after the Tiwi blokes only got here the night before the game and we had (Norm Smith medallist and Indigenous Team of the Century member) Byron Pickett playing for us as well.

ESSENDON has revoked the membership of a supporter accused of making racist comments towards Australian of the Year Adam Goodes during Friday night’s loss to Sydney at Etihad Stadium. 
Goodes was not aware of the comments until after the game and the fan was ejected from the ground by police after Essendon supporters reported the incident to stadium management.

Then the supporter claimed he heard someone say: “F*** off, Magilla the gorilla.”

“I turned around and asked loudly, “Who said that?” An adult male replied in a cocky manner, “I did.”

“I shook my head in disbelief. After all our club has done to combat racism on and off the field, this individual thought it was OK to refer to an indigenous player in such a manner. He changed his tune when I pointed him out to security.

“He (the abuser) ruined my family’s night at the footy.”

Bombers chief operating officer Xavier Campbell praised the actions of Essendon supporters who heard the comments and said the offending fan had since expressed deep remorse and accepted responsibility for his actions.

ST MARYS’ three-time premiership player Justin Wilson has fired a salvo at what he calls Victoria’s redneck bush football community. 
Wilson is still seething after 18-year-old Tiwi islander Cosmos Munkara was allegedly racially abused by an opposition player in a Kyabram Districts Football League match last month.

The veteran Saint has heard first hand, a series of racist comments on and off the field during his five-year involvement in Victorian country league matches.

“Some people just haven’t grasped the concept of indigenous people and the reasons they come down south to play footy,’’ he said.

“I’ve played in the Kerang (Central Murray), Mildura (Sunraysia) and Bendigo leagues and there are a lot of rednecks there that need to be hung out to dry and made accountable.

“It’s confusing to me, because in the 11 years I’ve been playing in the NTFL I haven’t heard a racist comment made despite the wide variety of different cultures that play the game here in Darwin.

“Yet in five seasons in country Victoria, two or three incidents that I know of have happened and obviously they continue to happen.

“They are behind the times down there. The fans should be banned like the players if they want to carry on like that.’’

Wilson said it was a simple case of a lack of respect being shown towards the Tiwi players, who were desperately trying to make their families proud by playing football interstate.

“The Tiwi boys come down for the right reasons, not the wrong ones and that is to play football in conditions that are very cold and foreign to them compared to the Top End,’’ he said. “It’s hard for Aboriginal boys everywhere to cope with that and being away from their families, without copping racist comments on top of that.

Poor little darlings! It's their land isn't it? That's what they keep echoing! What? can't grab them selves a dingo to rug up against while being on the bench and a set up a camp fire? How many white racist comments do white people get from them just because they don't want to " help dem out wid a spare coupla bucks"?  You get called a " Farkken Captain Cook whie Carn"

Yet another darky that wants to hang White "racists" but wont even recognise the vile racial hatred his "brothers" have for every White man, woman and child.

Bloody society approved, politically correct, black hypocrite.

FORMER Port Adelaide and Essendon forward Che Cockatoo-Collins is shattered after his oldest son quit the game because of a case of racial vilification. 
It comes as the game is celebrating its Indigenous Round.

Cockatoo-Collins, who played 85 games with Essendon and 75 with Port from 1994-2003, said the game has missed out on a potential top-10 draft pick after under-14 player Sachem turned his back on the game.

It has led Cockatoo-Collins to seek out legal advice, and the family is now considering making a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission as well as the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland.

Sachem was racially abused by a boundary umpire in a club game, was allegedly called “nigger’’ by the umpire and targeted with remarks from the official suggesting he should watch his back.
