Dancers at Garma 2015 adopt Adam Goodes # in a brilliantly effective show of support…

GARMA FESTIVAL ARNHEM LAND

Yolngu boys at Garma Festival in north-east Arnhem Land, NT, are painted in a Sydney Swans jersey to support embattled AFL star Adam Goodes. Local men and boys danced to support Goodes and to reject racism after he endured months of abuse on the field. (NITV News.)

Garma 2015

Could the Adam Goodes imbroglio herald (at long last) a genuine turning point in the Reconciliation process? We really hope so.

Commentators are viewing the brouhaha as a ‘watershed moment’ – and indeed it is. There’s an inherently racist substrata running through our culture and anyone who thinks otherwise is totally kidding themselves.

It’s a shame job, enough is enough.
