Why Australia should not be rewarded with a seat on the UN Security Council

Why Australia should not be rewarded with a seat on the UN Security Council

My apologies for my tardiness in updating Blak and Black over the last week or so, I’ve been reviewing evidence with a former colleague and equally concerned citizen relating to the alleged theft of $130,000,000.00 from the ACT Home Loan Portfolio (“Portfolio”) and its laundering through a Sydney ‘massage parlour’. Also, this will be the last post for a few days as Blak and Black is migrating to a more ...

AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption

AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption

Since writing my article Australia in the Solomons: A case study in 21st Century Gunboat Diplomacy I have had the opportunity to do some more research into AusAID and its so called commitment to the Pacific region, a commitment which the former Attorney-General of the Solomon Islands Mr. Julian Moti QC referred to as “AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption” and with good reason. In 2010 The Sunday Telegraph conducted an investigation ...

Australia in the Solomons: A case study in 21st Century Gunboat Diplomacy

Update: Subsequent to writing this post the Solomon Start has published an article which confirms much of what Blak and Black has been arguing concerning RAMSI’s role in the Solomon Islands and the 2006 Honiara riots. The main purpose of Blak and Black is to attempt to bring to the world’s attention the hypocrisy and racism that inform contemporary Australian society. While Australia’s treatment of its Aboriginal and Torres Strait ...

Systemic and Institutional Racism and Systemic Bias in the Australian justice system

Systemic and Institutional Racism and Systemic Bias in the Australian justice system

While discussing the competing merits of Australia’s subtle forms of genocide it employs against its indigenous people versus Indonesia’s more direct and brutal methods it employs in West Papua with Pius the author of ALP corruption, a suicide in the AFP and death threats made against a three year old – Human Rights Australian style I was asked exactly what I mean by “subtle forms of genocide”. After giving this ...

Pius wrote in ALP corruption, a suicide in the AFP and death threats made against a three year old – Human Rights Australian style about the actions of certain Australian Federal Police (“AFP”) officers who were involved in intimidating a witness to corruption at the highest levels of the Australian Capital Territory Government and the Australian Labor Party. In this post, Pius detailed how two AFP Agents threatened and assaulted ...

ALP corruption, a suicide in the AFP and death threats made against a three year old – Human Rights Australian style

The following post has been written by a colleague of mine from Papua New Guinea (PNG). I first met Pius in 1996 when I was working for the Papua New Guinea Banking Corporation (PNGBC) in the mid-1990s as its insolvency and reconstruction manager. At that time Pius was involved with Amnesty International working with West Papuan refugees living in makeshift camps on the PNG side of the Fly River, the ...

Bolt: A man who doesn't need the pillow case

Bolt: A man who doesn’t need the pillow case

An interesting comparison drawn from the Bolt judgement. Yesterday marked a line in the sand in Australian journalism. It’s just one line, but a significant one, with the finding of the Federal Court of Australia against Andrew Bolt and the Herald Sun in defending two of four articles written and published by the duo against charges that they breached the Racial Discrimination Act (RDA). The fearful thing is, that had ...

The racism within: when the law fails Indigenous Australians, should they claim asylum?

The racism within: when the law fails Indigenous Australians, should they claim asylum?

Blak and Black has been following the program “Go back where you came from” on SBS. Anyone in Australia watching the trending topics on Twitter tonight and eagerly last week would have been hard pressed to miss the hashtag #gobacksbs. Having missed the first program on Monday due to another commitment, I caught up the next two nights, joining in the Twitter exchanges online. Human rights, is a highly emotive ...
