Comments Because A White Man'll Never Do It

  • Louisa

    From Mudrooroo's introduction:"In this book, though published in 1973 in the heady days of the Whitlam era, Kevin Gilbert wrote about the problems which still plague Australia and Aboriginal Affairs today. It is not enough to declare that Aboriginal problems are health, education and employment and when these are fixed so will be the problem. Such policies hide the fact that there is a political dimension that must also be addressed; but not from the top down. We have all the time necessary to [...]

    After reading this book, originally published in 1973 you get the sense that not much has changed for the aboriginal people, the problems and issues they faced then, they still face today.At times you could feel the raw emotions of the author seeping out of the pages as he discussed the injustices the aboriginal people have gone through, the mental and psychological impacts they suffer from their colonisation and substance abuse that continues to affect and curtail the progress the aboriginal pe [...]

    This is a really interesting artefact of its - some of the language sits really uncomfortably with modern sensibilities but if you can get past that and the ego involved in some of his discussions of political rivals it's a fascinating book. One aspect of interest is that it was written in the very early days of the Whitlam government - I can tell you that their ATSI policy sounds positively revolutionary compared to anything either of the dumb and dumber side of politics offer today.

    I really liked Kevin Gilbert's writing style. It is sad with how much of the book is still relevant today 40 years later, and I wish this book or another like it is required reading for anyone going into Australian politics.

    I don't know whether and to what degree things have changed since this was written about forty years ago, but it was extremely informative and interesting, and his tone, a mixture of optimism and hopelessness and frank assessment of weaknesses and so on was just amazing. I want to read his play. It's not on ; I wonder if and how it was published.


  • Mira

    Although some of the language is dated, this book is all and everything, facts set down on the page. Poetry, transcriptions of broadcasts, first hand accounts, an intense history and inked protest against everything. What actually happened. When it is laid out like that, there is no argument about soft racism, no excuses. Better than the internet and general opinions and a sure progression towards changing people's stupid brains if everyone was asked to sit at a desk and read it front to back.
