parents: “u should be more active”
In The Loft at Little Creatures, Fremantle Western Australia
When someone thinks you’re a hassidic hillbilly with a snoot full of honeybees
reasons why halloween is the best holiday:
- you are not obliged to visit your relatives
- you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
- people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
- its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin
can i make it any more obvious?
The death of another Indigenous man in custody, Stanley Lord, highlights a judicial culture which disproportionately and unfairly imprisons our Indigenous population. As a point of comparison Stanley lord received 18 months jail for driving while disqualified. Jodhi Meares, a rich white woman, was three times over the legal limit, smashed four parked cars and was on her sixth driving suspension. She only received a $1100 fine and a one year driving ban.
This is system that continues to see Aboriginal deaths in custody rise by 50% since 1991. This is a system that has still failed to implement a number of common sense recommendations from a 1991 commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody. This is a system where our First Nation people make up 25% of the prison population but only 2.5% of the general population. In our juvenile system they make up 48% of our prison population. Overall Indigenous people are 14.8 x more likely to be imprisoned and 20x more likely in WA. The relegation of Indigenous issues to the ignore basket and the systemic oppression of our First Nation people must end.
