On behalf of the Government, the Prime Minister of Australia has apologized to aborigines by white colonization. Australia ranked third on the list of human development of the United Nations, after Iceland and Norway, with an income per capita above the Germany. However, the almost 500,000 Indians living in the country have one life expectancy of 17 years less than the national average, suffer high rates of unemployment, alcoholism and violence. Something very different happens in United States, where the black candidate Barack Obama has dispensed with his pastor Jeremiah Wright as his campaign Adviser for his incendiary sermons that lash out against the U.S. Government, among other things, by its historical racism inside and outside the country.
This country was founded and is directed by a racist principle, he said in a sermon. It is likely that Obama has been unlinked from Wright in policy to preserve the votes of a white population that much work had cost him earn and that perhaps not ready for recognize a historic past which is spoken little in families, in schools, in universities and in the media. Something doesn’t work in a society that puts one of every nine black and one in thirty-six Latin Americans aged between 20 and 34 years behind bars. The American Government, that equates immigration and ethnic difference to crime, seeks to curb immigration from Mexico and Central America with a fence of thousands of miles while studying formulas to assign the legal figure of believes for illegal immigrants. The atmosphere of political correctness and the euphemisms for not hurt racial sensitivities, as well as programmes of positive discrimination, can never replace a real recognition of persons from ethnic minorities as subjects of law and not support objects. The discourse for a black pastor to raise so many blisters in 21st century reflects to what extent is taboo the history of slavery supported in racism.
