    Posted this (as I shouldnt of) on another thread and was interested in what others thought

    On another note of "racism" there was this piece on 60 Minutes last nite of the black actor who now lives in a tin shed way outback

    Seemed a nice enough sort of bloke

    But then after the message is given that he has had a variety of acting positions but that the $ he earned was "given away" to his family and his tribe, he then goes on about how the house he was given by the govt wasn't up to scratch and it didnt have all mod cons.

    The message being sent was that Australia -white Australia, I assume, wasnt caring for him as they ought.

    C'mon?!?!?!

    First - where's the house they gonna build for ME??

    Two..if i chose to live in the back of Woop Woop a squillion miles from anywhere, certain tribulations go with that choice, dont they??

    3. And...if I had $ and gave it away, no matter how noble the act, who then do I blame?
