Good on yer, mate

Yup, she’s back in the news again.

From The Hindu: “Comparing Australia’s aborigines to India’s untouchables, controversial Indian author Arundhati Roy has accused Canberra of genocide and said she wanted to donate her USD 50,000 Sydney Peace Prize to aboriginal political activities to further their work.”

The Bulletin reported her as saying:”It is funny, I’ve spent so much time in South Africa recently and the white South Africans have a fascination for Australia.

“So, I was talking to some black friends and they laughed and said, ‘yeah, it’s because they think the Australians got it right. They just killed the blacks. The South Africans let us survive.”
