Stolen generations fury at memorial "whitewash"
"Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander commissioner, Murrandoo Yanner, unleashed a scathing attack upon the organisation, which he described as, 'a heap of shit', 'an oppressive regime', 'tokenistic' and a 'black rubber stamp', before declaring he would not be recontesting his position.

'Anybody who purports to represent Aboriginal people, can't really do that if you don't really run the show. Let's be honest about it, we're just a black rubber stamp ... the truth of the matter is we are absolutely pissweak.'"

And this is why Australian politics is cooler than American politics. I'd love to see Tom Daschle get up and say that John Ashcroft's policies are "a heap of shit."
