    I agree. It sets a very dangerous precedence

    Also I would be very careful about making public statements or assessments of someone's ethnicity.

    Andrew Bolt got smashed in court for comments made about some aboriginal activists who he believed were not aboriginal.

    Well this is what bothers me. This chick came into work one day and had a nice big smile on her face. She said to me "Hey would you like to see a photo of my Pop?" (grandfather) and I replied "I'd love to see a photo of your Pop" and she showed me the photo. The guy didn't even look Aboriginal. I mean he wasn't pale, I'd say his skin was olive more than anything, but he certainly didn't look it, so I immediately started to question myself whether she was even 25% Aboriginal.

    Then this got me to thinking... she was born in late 80s and has enjoyed a very privileged lifestyle. She wasn't part of the stolen generation or had to battle for equal pay or rights to vote, or any of that bullshit, and here she is reaping the benefits for the pain that one of her grandfathers possibly had to endure (and I cannot confirm this in it's entirety).

    Can technically Canadian aboriginals call Australia home now?

    I still remember on Border Patrol this clearly bogan redneck was kicking up a stink saying he is Aboriginal AND a Jew and picked on him because of those facts.

    Anyone else seen it? Fkn hilarious, the feds were trying not to laugh in his face and deck the fuck out of him at the same time.

    Seems absolutely crazy to me that someone who is born overseas is automatically an Aussie because of some percentage indegenous blood in them.

    Should absolutely be the home countries problem.

    Agreed. You know how you get rid of racism? You stop talking about it, and in this case stop ruling on it!

    So I was born in Australia, however, I am half Kiwi too as my mother is from New Zealand, but my daughter is part Aboriginal, does that mean I have the same Aboriginal rights she does? Lol this world has gone crazy with all this skin colour politics I’m sick of it! I judge another person purely off their character, not their race, religion or sex! After all we are all brothers and sisters from the same descendants ffs lets act like it.

    Does that mean then that because I have a percentage of blood in me from other countries that are not Australian that I am also automatically part of their nation?

    Hello Indigenous All-Stars. Eligibility for these sort of things is very bloody wishy-washy.

    You are probably joking but I can't tell.

    It should just be based on wherever you have citizenship. If someone is nz born, has no Australian passport I don't care who they are, they should be nz problem.

    I think it is very hard for Kiwis to become Australian. They can stay as long as they want but getting citizenship very hard for them. Just because you have some ancestor that was aboriginal shouldn't mean anything.

    However in some instances having blood from x country can allow you to get citizenship. But this nz guy doesn't have that apply to him.

    If it's based on blood then I should have: -

    Iraqi passport
    Lebanese Passport
    Russian Passport
    Australian Passport
    NZ Passport (if you include my Maori heart lol)

    Very multicultural I am lol
