A thread: I'd like to go over the *worst* take from the white guy who sat quietly while #KAK used the suffering of Indigenous people to dismiss Invasion Day: "History was pretty horrible so colonialism wasn't that bad. Also nobody is racist" #auspol

So right off the bat there's a switch: the "unheard side of the Studio 10 debate" is actually a think piece about #changethedate with no explanation for why Hildebrand stayed silent while Kerri-Anne went off on one. Not an important topic, I guess
This is already on shaky footing because #changethedate is old news and the only people still talking about it are, unsurprisingly, probably white. What's needed is substantive policy, not celebrating genocide on another day #fuckthedate #changeAustralia

Hey white journos! It is fantastic that theres mainstream interest in unpacking #KAK But rather than hitting up PoC to gift you their time via interviews, how about you suggest to your editor that they book/commission a PoC writer for this one? Had 3 requests today alone.

1/ I am aware I’ve been subtweeted by Shannon Molloy. He is someone who today asked me to give him an interview, I declined due to his past behaviour on Twitter. I declined via email. This tweet ☝🏽doesn’t name him, as it’s about the burden of unpaid labour we carry when racially
identified as someone who can offer answers and a voice. I haven’t refused to share my voice, I’ve published 3 articles on 3 platforms, all around Aus Day. I’ve just denied HIM my voice, & asked that media genuinely diversify & acknowledge this by paying people for their voice
