Dilemma of racial prejudice

Kennedy, P. (1987) Dilemma of racial prejudice. The West Australian, 3 November 1987. p. 5 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Premier, Brian Burke has identified racial prejudice as one of Australia's most pressing problems. Mr Burke, speaking on his weekly programme on 6PR, said that the country had been owned by Aborigines who were effectively dispossessed and placed in the position they now occupied. They has been able to manage the environment for centuries but, during the past two centuries had effectively been destroyed by the policies we had imposed. He later flew to Canberra for talks with the Prime Minister, Bob Hawke and senior officials on a range of matters, including the position of aborigines in the Rudall River National Park where rich uranium deposits have been found.
