Title: So ... Australians don't care if the Abos get hit by Cyclones?

February 2015 Cyclone Lam and Cyclone Marcia

http://www.ntnews.com.au/news/opinion/australian-cyclone-coverage-ignores-aboriginal-people-and-remote-areas/story-fnk0b216-1227234573191 (http://www.ntnews.com.au/news/opinion/australian-cyclone-coverage-ignores-aboriginal-people-and-remote-areas/story-fnk0b216-1227234573191)

The dust has all but settled after Cyclone Lam and Cyclone Marcia tore across Northern Australia. For many Australians, now comes the process of rebuilding some semblance of normality from the rubble left behind. 
But in the cyclones’ devastating wake, one crucial question remains - why don’t Australians care about the lives of Aboriginal people?
 ??? :o :-\ :'( Ummm...because they are a burden and a nuisance and are not as evolved as us!In every way and form!

This was clearly reflected in the inconsistent reporting by the majority of mainstream media outlets from around Australia, which relegated the impact on the Top End’s Aboriginal communities to a footnote in the narrative - if not ignored it entirely.

A similar thing happened in the reporting of Cyclone Marcia, with Queensland’s Aboriginal communities of Cherbourg and Worabinda seemingly forgotten by media. :'(Boo f'n HOO

It is nothing new - it is an ongoing issue with the mindsets of our Southerner counterparts. They love to pat themselves on the backs for how open-minded and progressive they are while sipping on lattes but when it comes to actually making a difference, there is an overwhelming sound of crickets.So the Northern territorians are being "racist and derogatory to Southern Australians with stereo typing?"

It is a shame that the self-proclaimed Aboriginal saviours from down south can’t show the same level of interest as when a metropolitan area filled with a predominately white population is affected.Why can't they get it through their thick skulls everyone hates the boongs! It is welcome when cyclones go kill them!

Some have argued that the focus was on those areas because they are so densely populated, which can easily be refuted by pointing out those areas are far better prepared for a category five cyclone than the under-developed remote Aboriginal communities.Let's see the clowns do something to develop them instead of being lazy bums!

The large ABC Darwin team and our reporter Zach Hope must be congratulated for their thorough coverage of Cyclone Lam ravaging our Aboriginal communities. While some east coast media outlets had split screens with up to 10 reporters from different metropolitan locations in Queensland, the NT media put their lives at risk venturing into our most disadvantaged areas. They left no stone unturned, no story untold.

The NT Government and emergency workers should also be commended for the swift evacuation of residents from Goulburn Island.Well I don't think so! should have poisoned the water for their return!

But some members of the public questioned why similar procedures were not enacted for other areas in just as much danger from a lack of shelter.

Some communities had no shelter, and residents were forced to bunker down in homes not up to code.I didn't know humpies were cyclone coded .. or cardboard boxes?!

Luckily they escaped unharmed, but what happens when the big one like Cyclone Tracy does finally hit? Will they be adequately prepared?Name one thing these people prepare themselves for?Fighting perhaps?

In Darwin, we all know what to do - we have places to go, literature and warnings to prepare us. But what do these Aboriginal communities have? What will they do?THE COULDN'T READ EVEN IF YOU TRIED TEACHING THEM!

A common point people have brought up is the fact that Aboriginal people choose to live in those areas. One person went so far as to say “they get what they pay for”, insinuating Aboriginal people do not deserve to have proper shelters because they apparently don’t have full-time jobs and pay tax. >:DWELL! DIGEST THE STATEMENT! HOW MANY DO YOU SEE PAY TAX?

There is no doubt this is coming from the same people who say Aboriginal people in cities should go live a traditional way of life out bush.

The fact is we all live on Aboriginal land ??? ??? ???, whether you like it or not. You can debate it until you go blue in the face but it won’t change the fact.It is my land as much as it is their's! in fact they should owe us something, they have done nothing for this place! Tasmania should come andfinish the job!

Aboriginal people deserve the same chance to preserve their life with a shelter and to prepare for a cyclone as the rest of us - no matter whether they live in the Darwin CBD or out on their traditional lands.How about they just bloody earn some coin and buy themselves a place? What about white people who want to  preserve their way of life? the cops just forget about prosecuting victims of abbo crime!

The same complacency about Aboriginal peoples’ lives is not just restricted to cyclone events. For instance, a large number of Aboriginal people go missing each year with little fanfare.  :'( :'(But when a white woman went missing — the police started a year-long campaign to find her. When a white man was knocked down in a hit-and-run accident, another campaign popped up to track down the guilty party.They don't call the abos "boongs" for no reason!

How often does this happen to Aboriginal people? And how often do you hear about it?Nobody wants anything to do with them!

There is a preconception in many Territorians’ minds that these are everyday occurances for Aboriginal people and are not worth worrying about. The number of times I’ve heard that “they probably went walkabout” is alarming.Hey that's an idea, send them to Antarctic regions and tell everyone they went walkabout!

This idea that Aboriginal lives are not as important, or worth as much as white lives is absolutely deplorable. :'(CARE FACTOR 0!

A human life has value no matter the colour of their skin, the language they speak, how many hours they work a week or how much tax they pay.

What's the difference between small storm and a tropical cyclone to an Abo? Since they've already destroyed their modern tax payer funded homes in favour of third world shanty towns, all they need do is go and pick up their few scraps of corrugated iron and make a new humpy (an Abo lean-to). And at the rate they kill themselves and each other, what's worse? a tropical cyclone or that day each week when money is dolled out to them, care of the White Australian tax payer?

Well It would have been interesting to turn them into kites. You know tie them down to robust trees and see these Abos just twist in the wind. Hey even better, make them hold keys and generate power for us while they are up there in the cyclonic thunder storm!

As far as their accommodation "You get what you pay for"! that statement kind of hits home!

THE repair bill for the damage done by Cyclone Lam will cost more than $100 million, the Northern Territory government says. 
ON Tuesday the initial figure was put at $82.4 million to repair housing, but Chief Minister Adam Giles told Parliament on Wednesday the total repair cost would be "well over $100 million".

AAP understands part of that will be funded by the commonwealth under a joint disaster relief funding agreement.
"The work around infrastructure, power, water and sewerage cabling, telecommunications and the like, there's going to be a lot of civil costs involved," Mr Giles said, but stressed it was too early to estimate the full cost.
Emergency response teams have since Saturday been assessing the damage in the four remote indigenous communities of Galiwinku, Milingimbi, Ramingining and Gapuwiyak.

Mr Giles says 61 homes in Galiwinku are so badly damaged as to be uninhabitable, while 211 have been assessed as habitable, with minor damage to 56 properties.

In Milingimbi, 19 homes have been written off, with minor damage to another 82 homes, displacing about 100 residents.

In the neighbouring community of Ramingining, 24 homes were destroyed, with minor damage to 66.

Repairs crews were focused first on fixing homes with only minor damage so residents could return, Mr Giles said.

The NT government is setting up a mobile shelter previously used to house NSW bushfire victims, which should be ready by Sunday for those in Galiwinku who cannot yet return to their homes.

There are about 90 people sheltering in the gymnasium of Shepherdson College, but the school will reopen on Tuesday, Mr Giles says.
The short-term camp will include heavy-duty shelters with hard floors that can accommodate up to 300 residents.

"The creation of an accommodation camp also means the school can reopen and kids can get back to class. This is an important step in the recovery process," Mr Giles said in a statement.

"This is an immediate solution for the next few weeks but we are looking at other accommodation options that can be provided by local Territory companies while the wider rebuilding work is done."
A state of emergency has been extended across the four communities, to be re-evaluated on Friday.

So 104 homes the abos reside in written off.. and $100 Million in damage? then  take into account fixing the minor damage so the Abbos wind up with homes worth over $500,000AUD? each? May as well get rid of them and just send them on to a middle class area where some of the homes are $300,000AUD.

Honestly who'd give a coon family a home that is worth over $500,000K? They'd leave it in a state like what the cyclone did  in no time!
