8:30 am
the me with the the the, me you again, so when they say, why did you burn down the community? why do you know neighborhood are we don't own anything. we don't have anything. there is a social contract that we all that if you feel or i feel the person who is the authority come in and they fix the situation with a partner who picked,
8:31 am
waited on the contract. when you definitely thinking about you talking about how to get we played your game, your well the persona burning for the and it still wouldn't be enough. and they are lucky that what black people are looking for a quality and not revenge over when they are there please. and again and by command died under the need of a white police officer. yeah. you don't get any can be in that moment. they became every black life. the captured on video was
8:32 am
every person enslaved. every person in chains. every person who lived under the wit, every person lynched from a tree, ordered to the back of the bus every day unless the faceless person was told the lives did not matter. the death george floyd gives his name to those nameless in his cries, we hear the cries of hundreds of years and the unknown dead and a world way. i see all those cries and they sound so from mrs. barr history. sounds like to us with bery
8:33 am
the, the reason why you know why the. * why do you watch that video and i dare you not to be angry. the you watch a video of a police officer stomping the life of a man with his knee on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds and excruciating. and when people see that video, they don't see george floyd's life being snuffed out. you know, they see actually the centuries of brutality and racism in this country in america has been here before the race, riots of the 19 sixty's on the streets of los angeles. in the 1990 in ferguson, missouri,
8:34 am
the ed in minneapolis today and the message is the same for black america, the land of the free as never truly for it. ah, me. the wellspring of anger, of actually goes to a centrally unresolved question in the united states, which is that the core, the foundation of the country, which had been founded on slavery. and jennifer mag, reasons why supremacy tension, we believe in life supremacy on tonight. and then for the black, legal inferior grows press on the bus. she rested. santa mother grabbed henrich, calling from the rear weiss on the fro, supremacy law of the law of the land. and we've had overcome quite phyllis supreme black for the inferior judy. even the plan figure who even went on the fire?
8:35 am
no. we've heard george floyd's words here in australian prisons. they were david dunn, guy junior, his last words in 2015 before he died, the hospital ward of sidney's long bay prison. oh, the current found lack of oxygen while he was restrained, was a contributing factor to his death. but it has taken the death of a black man in america to wake us up to what happens here. the black people die here in custody. and that the numbers keep rising and we failed to stop us. i i don't believe actually the government have learned
8:36 am
anything more than how to hide aboriginal death and can see from the world. and that's what we're trying to expose here. we need to expose globally what's happening here in australia because we resonate with people like george floyd, we resonate with those families. we resonate with, you know, various tests in custody around the world that are going on. same solar issue with every sub you. think about it to enforce the here the slavery was sent free play masses apartheid mass as they became very angry kilo the black about 70 is from the whole town that tulsa, oklahoma and rosewood, florida. they measured flash alive, me when i see black america and i see part of myself. when i was growing up, black america spoke to me. when white
8:37 am
a straight it did not. we our breath, we are sliding. we are down driving. we are denied not only level, right, but even human run. totally only way we're going to get some of the pricing right away from our side. so must have come together against the common enemy. and black america told me to dream. i have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed. we only choose to be self evident, that all men are created. the. those who say black lives matter is a movement we are importing from america. i know nothing of who we are,
8:38 am
the one they knew i came out of the same black churches as jesse jackson and martin luther king. aus was the church of the forsaken and these men were our patron saints and from black america. i learned how to speak back to whiteness, the wind, which we could to trade on color or religion with this. there are other ways of connecting ben. i tell you that when i left this country in 1048, i was just kind of one reason only one reason i where i, when i got the hong kong i matter on the timber to end up in paris on the speech, paris. and i'm talking on the theory and nothing words could happen to me. they said it already happened to me hear you talk about making it as
8:39 am
a write it by yourself. you won't be able then to turn up all the antenna. but when you live, because once you turn your back on the society, you may die. you may dot me with then flashes and stretched out roar. and you are not the guy and feel you fit the description. because there is only one guy who is always a guy fitting the description i i think that the white imagination has framed that conception of whiteness in a certain direction. and therefore, in order to keep itself segregated, superior in its narrative,
8:40 am
it had to classify blacks as, as animals. and we see that language being use by presidents like reagan being used by ordinary citizens. being used to talk about michelle obama as 1st lady. so, you know, and i think people have passively taken mat in and then believed it as fact. you know, so when we have somebody like president trump saying, you can tell these people anything and they'll believe it. he's not how quickly this wound steals our innocence. i didn't get to discover the world through my eyes. i was the one discovered i was the one captured in the white
8:41 am
gaze and learned at school the ha, listen of life. i lived in a world where white lives mattered. and i was not why me? why was and i was an old school yard towards me, the laughing pointing the mocking the head turning these little things to stay with you. once our eyes are open to the world around us, we can never see the world in the same way again in i was 15, but i learned another matter how close i got. i could never truly belong. one day i was asked in class to stand up and talk about myself to talk about my life. and i told them who i was. i told them where i was from. i told them about my
8:42 am
family, about my parents. i told them about our history. as a walked out of the class, one of my friends turned to me and said, why do you have to always talk about that? and we came back into class after lunch and scrawled across the board. be kind to stan, need love to might seem like just a little thing. it might seem like something you can struggle of sitting here to die. why should that matter? why should that matter to me? but you can never let go. of those things. people know, just wait a hurt you they know just how to charity, what you will place in the world is and what the price of belonging really is.
8:43 am
just shut up. just go along. don't talk about the the, the we live in a now where the supply side of the equation is broken. so we're entering into the supply shocks where there could be microchips, for example, or basic commodities or sharply. there's a food insecurity now by hundreds of millions of people around the world just emerging over the past 12 months because of this runaway inflation because of the runaway money printing as we've been bank for a few years. so now people are really coming to grips with the fact that as the reports been right about it,
8:44 am
what the the, whatever the aboriginal people here are more every day we're at war with system with the police
8:45 am
were at war with statistics. but you want to just move on from the ah, jane and mundane story. any black community straight in lives, black pool and in the side of the police. as a young boy chain and lost his mother and his father. he grew up on the streets in a seems to me. like so many others got into trouble, went to juvenile detention, and ultimately to j. prostrate in may call us statistics. we know those numbers. we have 3 percent of the population and the food values behind bars keen and is noticed statistic. he's real. busy and his friends
8:46 am
and his family are real and his pain is real. my come back to my community and all i see is pain. all i sees flaunting memories where i used to play with my friends and my brothers, that i've lost, where i used to sleep. but now my brothers are in prison, serving shifting youth. we never wanted to grow up to be drug addicts and criminals. we just wanted to be loved. we wanted mom and dad to be home. we want to have food on the table and we want to be safe. and we spend the rest of our lives trying to pick the pieces up and understand why we never had such a beginning like everybody else. and where do we fit in and how do we pick our selves up and move on from all of the page?
8:47 am
i was 17 when he came off his bike. it was impaled on a fence post. he died from his injuries. mm. the judge family believed he was being pursued by police at the time of the coroner rejected. one of the hottest i was also 7 another time and i was with him the night before the incident happened. thomas he keeps days set fire to the streets of rates and seeking
8:48 am
it looked like a scene from los angeles. ah, to this day that he family and the black community will not accept the current is finding that g j do was an accident. ah, they still believe police were pursuing they still wanted inquiry reopened. he died in the very community that we're playing as kids straight through the walk as children, and hope for a better future. hope not to be poor weapon grow up in chain and he's haunted by the memory of his friend t j. and he works every day to try to keep the young black kids out of jail.
8:49 am
i'm more scared, scared that it's going happened to my boys. i'm scared that my children are going to grow up in the country that think says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are other fellow friends in daycare. i see them being case by police. i see them in a still cry. i see them in an i don't prison cell. and having don't want to visit them because they're my children and then my blood. and that's mike spirit. and i had police driving along side of me on my way, walking to high school in year. right? so my understanding of, of surveillance were attached to race. my understandings of police brutality of prisons. really negative terminology attached to the idea of race rather than
8:50 am
race being about unity race being about collective communities, race being about love, my earliest understandings of race. yeah, we're rather set up as violence due to racism. latoya rule never got to say goodbye to her brother wayne fell a morrison. cctv 14. she captured his last day in adelaide, police hill where he was facing assault charges. i became unresponsive in a prison van and died in hospital 3 days later. in september 2016, a corranio in question is ongoing, but like so many other deaths in custody. for latoya and her family, there are more questions than answers. what happened in those final moments during one's last breath? there are so many questions why. in the 1st instance, they have to detain wayne,
8:51 am
what happened in the van? why wasn't there surveillance in the van? why is it that the offices actually refused initially, police entrance and investigated entrance to take their statements that were, i believe, not released until months and years later, you know, they, there's so many questions about what really happened to wayne. oh, there was, there's representation in federal parliament for generations. we, the 1st nations people had spoken truth to white power. 150 years ago. the average? oh, straight. and today, the demand is more than the white man's charity. run the right to lose me. still, there are no tricky. no voice i. people are often out of sight

and out of mind to most of the i places like wisdom strategies kimberly region have some of the highest youth suicide, right? anywhere in the world here, like so many of the black communities, paperless, stressed to breaking point violence, drug and alcohol addiction, chronic poverty. these are the sad realities of lives under the weight of our history. and powerlessness, not hopelessness. and it is our people, indigenous people. step up when astray area often looks away. they are really shoes and i have personal experiences of loss of families through suicide. and we learn to continue to believe in our selves
8:53 am
in our strengths, our resilience, our a nation for change. and we can change, and we can bring others along to assist us to work with us around creating the reforms within the systems and structures that need to be informed by lived realities of people. but to also empower people to lead the change at the community level. there's a photo passed down in my family. rows of aboriginal girls taken to a home to be trained to be servants, to meet under a sign that read, think white act white, be white. they lost their names and were given a number there in the middle is a small girl. number 658. my great aunt eunice grant.
