The publication of a photograph of university students at an official college function dressed up to look like "traditional" Aboriginal people, with their faces and limbs painted brown, has forced an internal investigation and rapid re-education program.
The eight female students from the co-educational Cromwell College within the University of Queensland were depicted in the photo - taken last Tuesday - with wild hair, holding sticks and wearing material fashioned into makeshift loin cloths.
The photo made its way on to online social networking sites and quickly raised the ire of a number of indigenous Australians from around the country.
At least one contacted the college and the university directly, sparking the investigation.

"Think #racism and #blackface are unacceptable in Australia?... Let UQ and Cromwell College know," one Twitter user wrote yesterday.
Another posted the photo again with the words included: "University of Queensland Cromwell College for aspiring racists everywhere."

females.. oh brother. Bunch of attention wh*res.

...

So if I dressed up as a basketball player, then I'm "mocking him"?

This feminized pansie-ass world we're living in today sickens me.

I need to build a teleport machine to move to another planet ASAP.

These people were not being racist! They were genuinely interested in the Aboriginal heritage and they put in a lot of effort to try and put themselves into the Aboriginal people's shoes (I don't know if Aboriginal people have shoes). So, they were actually trying to empathise with Aborigines.

When you try to be like someone else, you are not necessarily trying to mock them! You could just as likely be trying to emulate them, to use them as role models. When you wear a footy club's colours, it's very likely you are a fan.

People who always jump to the conclusion that others are mocking them must be very insecure indeed.

I think these young people found out some truths about Aboriginal attitudes and mentalities.

This happens normally everywhere in Australia, I went to the party and loads of white Aussie put black paint on the face with afro wigs, and making fun of aboriginals, the country is still very backward and primitive that's why South African whites and Racist Poms from rural areas find it very nice place to practice racism. BTW these people are just mocking aboriginal culture because they are not even properly dressed and just posing for a photo to get attention.

Atleast we know the furore or backlash wont turn into violence which is good. Because some people can take offence & become all aggro about it. In this case the Indigenous Community just want the site down which is very civil in comparison to the ones who made the FB page.

But it's NOT RACIST when an INDIAN DOCTOR, Dr Anand Deva, paints his face black, goes on TV and pretends to be Michael Jackson?

Which branded AUSTRALIA as racist, NOT India?

Oh okay then, one rule for you and a different one for Aussies...

Australian are in denial but I have seen racism happening on hundred of occasions, on streets, where people call you black shit and run away, in bars and clubs, where whites will push you or kick you from the back or the bouncer does not allow entry, at workplace where you are bullied because they doesn't like non-whites working there, at school and uni where they dislike you for obvious reasons, again at workplace where they sack you to replace you with some white.

Answering a simple question seems too difficult for you.

But seriously dude, if that many people give you attitude, maybe it would be helpful if you looked at YOUR OWN.

<quoted text>"Posing for photo to get attention?" ROFLMAO!!

But it's NOT RACIST (to you!)when an INDIAN DOCTOR, Dr Anand Deva, paints his face black, goes on national Australian TV and pretends to be Michael Jackson?

Is this the first time someone has called you a hypocrite? Pfft, you POS.

I agree with most comments I often wonder who is racist.Aborigines seem to get theyre fair share house loans (no deposit) car loans higher centrelink paymemts. free medical .houses built free in isolated communities' different pass scores for police fire ambulance etc.Theyre own employment agencies only employing aboriginies I wonder if I start a white only agency how would that be received.The government need to have a level playing field for everyone black or white for racism to stop
