Summary
Argues that after colonisation destroyed Aboriginal way of life, laws first disadvantaged Aboriginal people then in 'compensatory reaction' endeavoured to advantage them but as these laws apply to ethnic backgrounds not individual needs they nurture apartheid and racism; argues current laws will lead to racial polarisation rather than a multicultural society; sets out changes that should be made in specified areas to put in place programs to meet individual needs, provide appropriate (e.g. taking into account community life-style and climate for housing) assistance to all disadvantaged people and to remove ethnic specific programs in favour of racial equality
