Check this out ("Apology at last", Irish Times, Feb. 2):
"The West Australian Aboriginal community of Balgo… is one of the most depressing places you’ll ever visit. Obese drunken adults sat around a dusty main square, gambling with piles of $50 notes earned through mining royalties or cheques from indigenous art works.
The betting stopped only when a local woman picked up a fist-sized rock to swing at the head of a neighbour. The brawl went on for about five minutes before she was disarmed. The blood spilled was invisible on the red soil.
The ruins of squalid homes, some repaired and cleaned just weeks before only to be destroyed again, sat abandoned and uninhabitable. Children raced among the adults, mucous and fluid pouring from infections in their noses and ears.
The government-paid workers – police and nurses and repairmen – lived in homes protected by giant cages. The teenagers were invisible in daylight, coming out at night to throw stones, drink, or sniff petrol."
The writer could have added that up to 70% of children are subjected to sexual abuse, with many as young as six suffering from VD or AIDS.
A few points of note here. First, this was part of a piece which attributed all of the problems identified to the activities of whites. Second, they gambled $50 notes, ‘earned’ from mining royalties (i.e. they get the money because whites discovered the minerals in virtually uninhabited land). Note that police, repairmen and nurses, all paid by the white government, have to be protected by cages.
So we have the villagers provided with substantial money by the government, who also provide their health, accommodation and policing for nothing. Despite this, the village is a dystopian nightmare. And it’s all the fault of the whites.
Do you spot the causal relationship?
There’s no doubt that the aborigines were treated dreadfully, but does that justify their behaving like animals for generations? They came many thousands of years ago from Africa, and they’re demonstrating typical African characteristics. Is the description of Balbo much different from your typical African village or South African shanty town?
When blacks slide down to the bottom of every metric on every social scale, either in Africa or the West, the response is always the same. The whites are to blame. And we want cash compensation. Now please.
The problem stems from the nature of the Africans (see this). And things will never improve until this indisputable fact is recognized.
And by letting huge numbers of Africans into Europe we're importing their problems here.
