This direct yet polite comment of mine was deleted off the Coffs Coast Advocate page earlier.
My point is that if mainstream media are serious about ‘closing the gap’ in health they need to stop allowing comments on their articles about First Nations peoples. Or don’t report at all unless directed by us.
All that comes from the comments section is a shit load of ignorance and racism from entitled people who know absolutely FUCK ALL! And all we hear and see when we read these comments is how much we are still hated in our own country. This obviously does NOT improve our health in any way, shape or form, but does the exact opposite.
And this is why the whole concept of closing the gap is a farce, because no-one except blackfullas are committed to it.
So no, you are not entitled to an opinion when you know nothing. You are entitled to #shutyahole #stfu #banmainstreammedia
