What he has shown though is genuine class in the way that he has conducted himself, he has demonstrated an ability to function successfully in both the Indigenous and wider community.

The Aboriginal community in Tasmania suffered terribly through colonisation, probably worse than any other group in Australia. All Tasmanian Aboriginals today are descended from a handful of survivors of the colonial wars that took place there and who were sent to the Island in the Bass Strait. So there is no way Geale would be accepted by this community if he couldn't prove the connection.

There is no doubt that there is still massive issues with racism that Indigenous people in Australia face today and I have no doubt that Mundine has also been subject to these prejudices. However his tactic of attacking Geale's Aboriginality and family, regardless of the motivation is way off the mark and in poor taste. Divide and conquor is something that Mundine should be aware of and have more sense to get caught up in.

Besides I have heard a credible rumor that Geale will be spending time visiting an Indigenous communityto help out with boxing in the lead up to this fight.
Good post. Last paragraph he probably does that anyway.

Mundine says sorry but not to Geale.

Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre (TAC) legal director Michael Mansell responded to Mundine's original comments

"In this day and age, that sort of notion is just rejected across the board in white Australia and in black Australia."

Mr Mansell likened Mundine's comments to neo-Nazi beliefs.

"His comments were hurtful to Aboriginal people, they were racist and they were grubby, and his comments about the colour of the skin of his opponent's wife and the child of his opponent were just unforgivable," he said.

"We thought we'd won this battle in the 1970s, but this sort of resurgence of this sort of neo-Nazi-type purity of race that's creeping back into the debate, expressed by a high-profile Aboriginal person such as Anthony Mundine doesn't help the cause at all."

...Spoken for and on behalf of the majority Aussies who live in what is probably the most advanced multicultural country in the world.

Most of the hate against mundine is only because he is an aboriginal and he has a BIG mouth- if he was a white boy and had a big mouth, you wouldnt hate him as much- this is a fact- Go to a pub and you see what most aussies say and the nature of racism comes out-

Lets not argue- this is a FACT- he is an aboriginal and proud- most aussies HATE THIS!

Aussies cant tolerate an aboriginal with a big mouth-

So lets be honest, if you ''hate' the man which there is no reason to hate him its because most likely you are a racist-.


I for one dont like what he has done over the last few years and taking the fans for a ride and making money $$ but i for one dont hate him and dont have any ill feelings towards him.

I call him bumdine but so much hate is CRAZY!
Sorry mate i hate all loud mouth arrogant pricks equally and so do most Australians I reckon. It goes against what we believe is great about being Aussies. We don't need to be loud to be heard and let our actions speak for us.

Mundine will do all the work in promoting and making this a massive spectacle!
1/16th can kick back and enjoy the financial rewards he will receive on the back of an Aboriginal... Just like he has in the past!
Your post is an extremely derogatory and yes, racist comment - you're just too busy trying to convince yourself you know more about this matter than the rest of us because you're Aboriginal to realise it.

So Mundine played his bad boy role, in front of a theatre that wanted to walk out, but who will return in three months to see words become action.

In addition to only being 1% aboriginal he is a lazy cunt as well. That is no wonder only 10 people turned up at the airport when he came back from Germany.
Nice work StormFRONTER

Sure, referring to Geale as "1/16th" and Mundine as an "Aboriginal" he is earning money "on the back of" isn't racist towards Geale at all
