Being in a position of power where you are able to broadcast your views and opinions to national Australia is something that should require great delicacy, respect and critical review and consideration of all perspectives.
Unfortunately with this current treatment of Adam Goodes, those in power are not highlighting and educating wider Australia on our deeply-rooted racism, and are instead trying to sweep it under the rug.
Charlie Pickering’s review below sums it up quite nicely, thank you Pickering for using your voice for awareness and education.
This saga is entirely racially motivated. To pretend otherwise is to deny that racism against Aboriginal Australians exists; it’s to deny the wounds of our racist history and how the scars continue to fester into the present.
