Black Australian politician sparks race row after saying prison is good for Aborigines as 'it means they get to spend time with their families'

Rather sadly, the lady is right.  Young Aborigines are very prone to extreme alcohol abuse.  And they are often locked up for committing crimes whilst intoxicated

An Australian politician has sparked a race row after saying prison is good for Aboriginies as 'it means they get to spend time with their families.'

Bess Price, an MP for the sitting Country Liberal Party made the comments after the Legislative Assembly agreed to changes in mandatory sentencing for violent offenders.

Price, an Aboriginal Australian activist,  was responding to the Labor Party's opposition to the law changes, which they said would see prison numbers increase significantly.

The member for Stuart argued that jail had benefits for young Aborigines. 'While they are being imprisoned, they don't get to drink, they don't get into trouble, they are fed three times a day,' she said.

'They are in there with their family members.  'They sleep in their language groups and they all come out of prison much healthier.'

Labor's Member for Nhulunbuy, Lynne Walker, said Price's comments were a 'sad indictment it is, of where our system is,' reported TNT magazine.

She told Parliament she was saddened by Ms Price's statement and said it painted a disturbing scenario.

White leftists can't handle the truth. Australia's Aboriginal population is self destructive without government non-pc intererence. The left is too busy tripping over themselves to appologise for something that did not happen on the scale that they fantasise about, namely the stolen generation myth. Nobody can find any victims that were removed from their families because they were black much to the annoyance of the leftist government and its dogooder cronies. I would like to see a comparison of the number of white children removed from families because of abuse or poverty not to mention the number of babies put into orphanages becuase the mother was a white teenager who was careless and got knocked up. White teenagers were never allowed to keep their bastard children until a leftist government made it fashionable when feminism emerged and gave them benefits. But these things are swept under the carpet along with the truth.
