There are rules for whites and blacks these days though as someone pointed out but some people are blind to see it. It happens everywhere. A black indigenous person goes to court and gets slapped on the wrist and told to front up to his tribal elders for punishment is not my idea of equal rights!
A white person would more than likely be fined or thrown in jail. It does not happen all the time though granted but it does happen. Which is really apathied is it not but masquerading as equal rights. How many white people get told to front up to their tribal elders for punishment, I don't think you would find any do.
I can understand that indigenous people might need some laws but when courts etc do things like above it leaves you speechless actually. There is supposed to be one set of laws for everyone, but obviously in some cases there are two.
If someone murders someone else I dont care if you you are black, white purple or green you do the crime you do the time, one law for all. After all that is what the indigenous people want equality with the whites.
As for Eddie Betts yes he is a good footballer and I know a few indigenous players that are, but he is still a sportsman that should shrug things off like as just some stupid fan who got a bit worked up. The media blew it up out of all proportion though, like they usually do.
I have a indigenous friend and his real first name is Nigger, it is on his birth certificate as his first name. So now by the looks of the law I cannot call him Nigger can I. I have already been called out on that years back at a railway station when I got off, of the train and said to him standing there "Hey Nigger", and some woman told me not to address him like that as I was racist. He then told the woman it was his real name and to shut the hell up as this bloke is my friend! What should I call him now though as I cannot use the term nigger any more!
