Jacqui Burke plays the anglo race card

By johnboy - 5 September 2005 4

Jacqui Burke has had a most peculiar dummy spit. She’s accusing Jon Stanhope of being racist to her anglo self.

Now it’s interesting that Jacqui’s waited a couple of weeks before throwing her toys out of the pram.

But at the end of the day the downside for anglos, having conquered the planet and still dominating most things going, is that everyone gets to be racist except us.

Dry your eyes princess.

(Incidentally I find the implied reverse racism of the Chief Minister a bit nauseating, but not so much as Jacqui’s whinge)

What’s Your opinion?

This one had be intrigued, so I read the Hansard.

Stanhope was talking about Jacqui Burke’s claim that the Ngunnawal elder Onyong (sp?) either didn’t exist or, if he did exist, had no connection to any living Ngunnawal elders. He said that a ‘prominent Ngunnawal elder’ had been offended that a migrant who travels on a foreign passport had questioned her Aboriginality.

Sounds fair enough to me. I’d be pissed off too.

Wake up ms Burke,

You are white and Anglo. That means you cannot be racially abused.

Its in the ‘Little Left Book of Hand Wringing Bleeding Hearted Black Armband History of Australia.’

Having said that, its probably true that Stanhope used her anglo origins as a slur. It wouldn’t surprise me the slightest.
