Yes. Plus they have been essentially brainwashed into believing their white skin makes them guilty of something unspecific they need to atone for and make grovelling apologies for. All white people do

Why are aussies protesting because of the death of a black man in the USA ?

They are gathering because this also has happened and continues to happen to Aboriginal men and women in custody, over 430 men and women in the past few years have died either because acts by Police o

Anyone would realize that there is no place in society for police brutality or abuse of power, but in America thousands of blacks are killed by blacks every year and no-one gives a toss. Also worth mentioning that this Floyd character was no saint, and if he had lived in China he would have got one behind the ear long ago 😞

How do you know?

Are they not also target of violent black men ?

Domestic violence, yes. I shouldn't have included that. Poverty is a factor in violent crimes, so PoC and indigenous people are over-represented in the stats.

 

The salient point is that PoC are targeted specifically because of their skin colour, by non black males and police. That's the main issue in these protests.

So it took a man dying in a far away country for Australians to protest about Aborigine deaths? I think not.

 

Have a march for Aborigines then, not some man with no connection to Oz.

Exactly, the American death whilst sad should not be the trigger point in Aus.

 

Sounds like my fellow Aussies are just using it as an excuse for the sake of protesting.

Neither of you get it.

I doubt you have experienced systemic and lifelong racial discrimination in your existence

The main issue in these protests is Police brutality, nothing to do with non black males other than they are the excuse for the protests and rioting.

 

Wonder what the stats are for White on black and Black on black violence is ?

This is about the culture of systemic racism from law enforcement agencies towards POC,and in Australia towards Aboriginal men and women in custody.  nice try at deflection, but not the issue here.

The main issue is systemic endemic racism

Australia needs a designated protest city !

You must stage 100 or less empty police cars , multi brand fully stocked department stores and businesses  ,all within a one k of each other  then Invite protestors with a 8 hour time limit. Think of the advantages this experiment would have on lives,property while instilling  social awareness

And yet more white men die in police custody or imprisonment in Australia than indigenous people.

What is this endemic racism you speak of ?

Aboriginal people are 3% of the population but 34% of those incarcerated.

The manner of the deaths in custody of the Aboriginal population is often preventable, and most often as a result of violence or neglect ( with holding medications etc, ) at the hands of either police or custodial officers.

Rarely have people been prosecuted or convicted. I understand you cannot see past your own bias, and any objective view of situations for you currently is not possible.

I was wondering how long before Trump got blamed for an Australian march. Didn't take long.

Except SA, demo's have been cancelled due to Covid concerns. trump wannabees in Oz and elsewhere is regrettably a fact of political life. On the other side of the coin trump admires Putin, Orban and others - excellent representative of the Office of the President of the USA - LOL
