I told you already. It was so that they can be included in census statistics and also remove 2 old statements from the constitution which were deemed as racist.

It removed statutes whereby they were not covered under Commonwealth Legislation or the criminal legal system. It was a referendum that was passed by over 90% of the electorate.

It had nothing to do with the Flora and Fauna Act and it had nothing to do with suffrage which was granted to them in 1850, well over 100 years earlier than Blacks in America and before any women was granted suffrage.

Click on the link below to see the 2 old statements from an official source (straight from the horse's mouth)

Here are the facts: http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs150.aspx

Next idiot please! :lol:

so you are not an idiot. what did these statements mean you stupid idiot.
51. The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to:-
...(xxvi) The people of any race, other than the aboriginal people in any State, for whom it is necessary to make special laws.

127. In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, aboriginal natives should not be counted


you say they were allowed to vote but you did not count them as people until 1967. what kind of stupid idiot are you.

It means Aboriginals were no longer subject to their own Tribal Laws which include punishments such as Tribal Spearings. They were now subject to the same laws as every other Autralian. It also means that they can be charged and sentenced by a Court to serve prison terms.

It also means they could be included in census results.

That is all the above statements mean.

Up to 1967, Australia allowed Aborigines to live under their own laws. That all finished.

The statements as they were presented to voters were self explanatory dumb arse.

One territory only abolished Tribal Law about 10 years ago. Aboriginals would be charged with a crime, sentenced by an Australian Court but instead of serving time, they were handed over to their Tribe who will then carry out their own sentences. These punishments can be quite severe and include spearing by the victim's family who had the power to forgive. It's a bit like Sharia Law.

This occurred even if the victim was from another tribe. Otherwise, it could lead to a war between the 2 tribes.

I think it was the Federal Courts which shut down the practice because it was deemed too cruel.

Wrong!

They were on electoral lists and could vote from 1850.

That was an earlier act. Census has nothing to do with suffrage. All you need to do is register to vote.

That's another misconception and lie out of the 67 referendum. It is well recognized that Aborigines had been allowed to vote well before then, and in actual fact voted in all Federal Elections.

They were also allowed to serve in the Military and we even had Aboriginal Officers as well as WW2 Pilots.
