Former footballer and coach apologises for Aboriginal slur

Near-legendary footballer Mal Brown has apologised to Aboriginal players for referring to them as "cannibals". To be fair, Brown, noted for his big mouth, probably thought he was being funny but in today's climate of hyper-sensitivity, his remarks have caused a huge uproar.

The ABC's Jonathan Green sees Brown's ill-considered comments as indicative of the entrenched racism permeating Australian society. In Green's fuzzy lefty mind mind Aborigines are like children who are unable to help themselves, perennially falling victim to white exploitation. Now there's an outdated view if ever there was one.
