Abstract:

Race relations are one of the most fraught issues in the world. Almost everywhere in the world where different races rub against each other there is racism and friction. The problem is most acute with displaced indigenous people. White Australia with the history of its terrible treatment of the Aborigines is an extreme case study. In this essay, Germaine Greer shows how it could, should and must be different. The problem is not the Aborigines but the ʻsettler societyʼ and what it has done to the country. She shows how Australians must embrace their aboriginality.
