Australia’s Apartheid

On a recent visit to Australia’s Northern Territory, I found myself in a little town called Katherine.  I noticed at the local hotel/pub, that there were mannequins lying on the pavement outside.  I walked over only to find they were human beings.  One was a lady of about 64, she had nose residue running out of her nose and into her mouth.  Lying next to her was a little fella around the age of two (I later found that she was his grandmother).  It made me feel quite angry that people were allowed/forced to live like this.

I thought, this is not Soweto.  It seems like South Africa before the re-alignment with the rest of society.  The whites in Australia are committing the same acts of barbarism as in the era of South Africa’s Apartheid.  Australia has it’s townships and it’s people suffer to pay the white man. The whites demand high rents that few can afford.  Give up, the black fella says and drink more grog.  Blacks are being served out of sight of those soft white faces. Tears are shed but nothing is said.  The churches tell them to be patient.  The government give them empty gestures.  Who can they cry to?  But we see what you do and we don’t like it.  But the rulers do!

Christ would not forgive what they/we do!

The streets are littered with drunken souls.  Where else could they have turned?  The politician is deaf, the barman listens.  How easy for it to happen!  It could happen to you.

We watch and we see, we know this was not meant.

Black babies die for a glass of milk yet we give it to pigs so we can have breakfast and do it again!
