Letter to The Editor - He wants indigenous separatism rather than a united Australian people

To The Age        In answer to Michael Mansell (25/6) I suggest that, while the national anthem is a white people's production, it can still be shared today in 2019 by all Australians. Australia, as a nation, is certainly young by world standards; and our relative freedom is one of our greatest treasures. There is no "slight on Aboriginal people" in it; and no living Australian has "been here thousands of years." Aboriginals who "don't feel at all free" are surely a minority among their own people. It is not the anthem that is "divisive" but obsessed activists like Mansell whose actual words suggest that he wants indigenous separatism rather than a united Australian people. The great majority of Australians will never buy that and are happy to be part of a "euro-centric" country.
