Dennis Jensen slams ‘noble savage’ ideal

COMBATING RACISM: Lib MP slams ‘noble savage’ ideal. Western Australian MP Dennis Jensen:

“We allow our Aboriginal Australians to live in situations, and support situations financially, that we would support with nobody else,” he said on Monday.

…Mr Jensen said if the “noble savage” ideal was true, indigenous Australians could pursue it without any taxpayer funding.

Liberal party values were to seek equality of opportunity, not of outcome, he said.
