    I love cartoons about ideological despair, because they pillory our fears, insecurities and moral cowardice. They also draw attention to the necessity to call bluff.

    Racism has become such a noxious cliche. Of course it is not difficult to find some antediluvian who still thinks that Europeans are somehow ‘special’ above others, but all they do is demonstrate the lie that underlies all widely circulated and oppressive cliches.

    It is time we stopped hopping from one foot to another in front of our indigenous brothers and sisters. We don’t need to look as if we need to go for a piss every time we feel the need to be honest with them.

    For f**ck sake, we do not have to treat them as if they were a sacred site. It neither helps them or gets us of the hook.

    Somebody was going to invade Australia sooner or later. They could have got the Maori or the Japanese for Chrissake! Suck it up. Move on. We really need an indigenous PM, some corporate heads, a judge or entrepreneur and even a dentist and an accountant or two.

    Well where are they? We’ve said sorry. We are spending barrels of money on you. Perhaps it is time you said sorry to each other and your children for languishing in self pity instead of kicking goals or at least making sure the kids do.

    So where are ya? Where’s your community commitment to turning your fortunes around. Do you think you are going to be able to blame everyone else forever?

    When are you guys going to be making your mark on the world and assert your rightful place in it? Or are you going to use ‘racism’ as an excuse for non performance until doomsday, or what?

    Why aren’t indigenous kids burning off their Chinese and Sudanese competitors at school? Well why f**cking not?!!

    And you know the story about “Two Dogs” (the “Indian”) don’t you?

  4. rhwombat

    HB: it was s’posed to be co-prosperity (’cause of alliteration), but said with a shit-eating grin.

  5. Jim Moore

    You crack me up FD. You’re worth the subscription price on your own.

    Venise: Two Dogs was the company. They produced an alcoholic lemon drink. We have Google now.

  6. Venise Alstergren

    ANDYBOB:(12) Are you sure that wasn’t me saying that?

    Wasn’t there a beer called Two Dogs F/pissing?

  7. Holden Back

    rhw: Not sure I like the sound of Copro-sperity. Is that like coprophagia?

  8. Andybob

    EMC: Haven’t you previously claimed all cats are grey at night ?

  9. AsGrayAsGray

    Can’t believe it, FD, you actually *went there*; white people dancing around a cauldron… Brave or foolish? Only tomorrow’s tabloids will tell.

  10. rhwombat

    Excellent FD: another Walkley for you. I’m intrigued by the identity of the other member of the Canine Cartoonist Coprosperity Coalition. I know I should recognise the scent, but all you non-marsuipials look the same to me

    This blends in nicely with one of my favourite “I’m not r@cist but…” statements, where someone who claims they don’t see colour starts with “I don’t care if they’re black, white or brindle” immediately reducing the status of the subject to dogs.

    And I say that as a proud tuxedo and some of my best friends are tabbies.

  12. ianjohnno

    Nice multi-layering.

  13. Hendo

    Great cartoon, an idea sensitively handled. This is why I love your work First Dog!

  14. klewso

    Do Belgian Shepherds get Samoyed?

  15. drovers cat

    Abstract angst – love it.
    Has Animals Australia called yet?

  16. Saugoof

    aren’t dogs colour blind?

  17. paddy

    Cartooning angst GOLD! FD.

  18. Holden Back

    Wait. Two dogs go into a pub . . .

  19. zut alors

    Nobody gives a toss about the colour of dogs. Only of people.

    Strewth, we’re a weird mob.
