I found the post interesting enough to review the comments and chime in a couple of times. Here in Sydney as well as in Egypt, people have often commented to me on the strangeness of the American logic of race. Everyone knows that Obama’s mother was white, and yet everyone “knows” that Obama is black.
I tell them that yes, it’s absurd, but it’s how our culture popularly imagines race.
I’ve met several Aboriginal scholars who are as fair as Welsh-background me with straight blond hair, so it’s definitely not one’s appearance that is considered to make one Aboriginal. Torres Strait Islanders or Aboriginal Australians, not about what Australians think it means to be .
Is “black” applied to all Indigenous Australians, independent of skin color? Lorraine Spencer is a resourceful, inspiring and motivating personal coach who assists those on their journey to find their life mates.
