'First Contact' misrepresentation of fair skinned mob as if a cup of tea…the add milk and it's still tea analogy;
I think being compared to a cup of tea comes from that tv show ‘First Contact’ and it isn’t telling the half of it.
I think it was such a passive show in general which didn’t hit wudjulahs hard enough about why we ARE fair looking in the majority of cases.
The reason I’m fair looking is from forced assimilation and rapes over 4 generations on a single line of women right to me.
I’m a product of the ‘breeding them out’ program and not a weak cuppa tea.
You can still interpret that into that analogy and I’ve had that thrown back in my face after confronting someone thinking it was a good analogy to try out in order to defend my life or the ‘appearance’ of it to a poxy racist.
I’m a litmus test and a secret spy to those I love, THAT’s all.
I sure hope the young woman who originally said that on ‘First Contact’ mentioned the rapes and forced relations with white men only ONCE to those gathered off camera because it sure wasn’t mentioned on film.
The truth is that
I loved my white grandfather but he met my grandmother while she was in an assimilation house set up by the Catholic Church who had to assimilate fair mob by racist laws back in the 1940’s.
It’s a miracle that they did love each other and he had to defend his kids from having them taken by force by authorities along side my Badimaya great grandmother WITH SHOTGUNS IN THEIR HANDS.
My white Irish Pavee grandfather passed away when I was 6 years old.
I think racism kills everyone because it’s emotional abuse of kids.
I’m not different or diverse as a fair skinned mob in itself.
I’m accepted by my own mob for who I am as Badimaya woman.
Those that aren’t accepted are in the extreme minority.
It’s only in the wudjulah (white) majority that I do get being fair skinned First Nation as being unacceptable with all the stereotypes flying thick and fast about fair mob exploiting THEM somehow. It’s a racism from them that says that my own mob accept fair mob because we somehow DO exploit with the darker mob’s tick of approval to get back at them for having so much power!?
It’s complex form of racism on the surface but it’s still racism because the wudjulah’s (non-First Nation people) forget completely about culture and about what love of family is.
Those that DO exploit their culture and family for more money in the majority white population are few & far between. They usually end up with HUGE jobs in wudjulah ‘government’ or in the ‘system’ to oppress their own mob (coercive tutors). These kinds of fair skinned mob get cut off from their family with only a narrow avenue to return through because they’ve chosen a path to be Jackie-jackies and coconuts (translated as Uncle Tom’s in Turtle Island).
I made this picture using computer graphics.
Does this fair skinned young woman look weak or passive about who she is or how she got here? I don’t think so.
