    You could do with some education on a few topics, perhaps some research could be in order, and also learning the art of critical analysis, as it seems you are spouting off incorrect information and claiming it as fact. Scary stuff.

    I don't find racists entertaining.

    I'm sure this happens in arranged marriages. Certain of it. But do you know what? I am certain it happens in non-arranged, western, ocker Australian marriages too.

    Rape within marriage isn't uncommon. And it's a bloody tragedy. But rape within marriages is not by any stretch of the imagination limited to the marriages of brown people. Nor are all married brown men raping their wives.

    my point exactly should be on a case my case basis, because I am against what one person/family did to that individual as shown in the insight add does not mean I am against that race completely

    just because I am against that action and others similar does not mean I am racist hence why it does not bother me what others post

    These boxes are for stats and more. Indigenous Australians' culture differs to Anglo Australians culture and in some things it helps to know that the person is in indigenous to be able to respect their beliefs. For example their traditional way of viewing death is very different to the Anglo way. I worked at a museum with many indigenous guys and they told me about some of the issues. Being able to tick that box means that their GP or other professional who talks to them can be more sensitive to their needs.

    And it would be lovely if we had more boxes and could be more sensitive of other minority groups. I have completed forms where they asked about cultural needs and I think it's great where it's relevant.

    But until it's a perfect world and all minorities get acknowledged, I can say Australia does owe a debt to its indigenous population who are also its traditional owners. And until there is equality these boxes hopefully make some difference.

    So are these your actual views or are you just trying to get a bite?

    It's a wee bit silly to intentionally say something utterly abhorrent and then find it amusing that people find what you say abhorrent.

    Abhorrent things are abhorrent. Kind of obvious, right?
