I can’t help but comment on last week’s Backlash regarding the nationality of the Royal Family of Great Britain. Using the same concept one would have to say that all non-Aboriginal people are not Australian; they are English, Irish, Scottish, Asian etc.
Many have changed their family names, and some their first names as well, in order to fit in more easily with the culture they have adopted.
As for racism, are you joking, folks? White Australians dare to comment on the racism of others? We don’t even know exactly what was said or by whom. Of course it needs to be investigated, and some heart-to-heart conversations with Harry and Meghan and close family members would seem to me to be essential. But to suddenly jump on the bandwagon of self-righteous indignation with regard to matters of which we know so little (were you there?) seems to me like gross hypocrisy.
If you find yourself always ready to heap blame on others for their perceived wrongs, then perhaps the old adage ‘people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’ should be brought more sharply into focus.
