Bolt v Langton and the ABC. Aboriginal academic Marcia Langton attacked conservative columnist Andrew Bolt on Q&A last week, and the fallout is still continuing. On the program, which aired on March 10, Langton said:
"In my opinion, the articles that [Andrew] Bolt wrote about several Aboriginal people were far from the subject of politics and simply abusive. Now, just to take one instance, there was a young woman who was the victim of his abuse ... Dr Misty Jenkins ... the victim of foul abuse from Bolt now, nothing that he said about her was political. It was simply racial abuse. He argued that she had no right to claim that she was Aboriginal and, like most fools who put this argument in public, we are expected to deny our parents and our grandparents because somebody believes in race theories."
