'Telling his own people to move on from the traumas of the past, makes it very obvious why he is not accepted in many Aboriginal communities.' Ghillar Michael Anderson says, and 'It is untrue that all of the European holocaust victims have moved on and forgotten the past. Throughout Germany and other places there are memorials for those who suffered and died at the hands of tyrannical leaders and murderers, but there is only *one monument to the Aboriginal dead, who were killed en masse through white farmer vigilantes and government approved killings'.

Ghillar, Michael Anderson responds to The Australian, 8 May 2015 – 'Noel Pearson shines a light' p.15:
Clearly, Noel Pearson has a dissociative disorder. (The Australian, 8 May – Noel Pearson shines a light. p.15.) Telling his own people to move on from the traumas of the past, makes it very obvious why he is not accepted in many Aboriginal communities.
I have just spoken at a Hawk Institute forum in Adelaide, where over 300 people attended, more than half were Aboriginal people from the different South Australian Nations. The anger and out cry from within the people demonstrated clearly that Noel Pearson is not in empathy with us.

It is untrue that all of the European holocaust victims have moved on and forgotten the past. Throughout Germany and other places there are memorials for those who suffered and died at the hands of tyrannical leaders and murderers, but there is only one monument to the Aboriginal dead, who were killed en masse through white farmer vigilantes and government approved killings - Myall Creek in the NSW Northern Tablelands.
My own people have human remains still scattered on the open plains where a 'free settler' in the 1840s butchered hundreds of children, women and Elders. We have his written testimony of orchestrating the killings, but under the whiteman's law we will be prosecuted for trespass, if we try to rebury the skeletal remains. With no coronial inquests into those killings, there is no closure. The intergenerational pain never goes away.
It is unrealistic for Pearson, and Mundine, to suggest that Aboriginal people should move on and forget such trauma and become successful business people in the world that continues to sanction and deny such killings.
Noel Pearson's limited knowledge of history is reflected in his statement on the so-called continued welfare dependency. This is not of our doing and he knows that, yet he continues to appease perpetrators of racism.
Unlike the reparations after the holocaust of Europe, Australia refuses to return the property that they obtained as a result of their crimes against our Peoples and governments have not compensated us in cash in any form whatsoever, so that we can rebuild our societies. Instead, governments have developed showpieces such as the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC) and Indigenous Business Australia (IBA), but these organisations are operating on the basis of banks and other lending facilities. This is not reparations, compensation or restitution. They are money laundering and lending facilities. Nothing to do with redress for the wrongs of the past.
Australia and the rest of the world condemned communism and socialism as a form of governance, but when you look at the operations of the ILC and the IBA, communism, that is central control and ownership, is clearly visible and demonstrates how to perfect the communist state. There is no transfer of ownership to Aboriginal Peoples as reparation. There is no ability for equal suffrage. The consequences of the theft and destruction of everything that we knew, and know, is being denied by the likes of a man who is dressed up in an Aboriginal body – called Noel Pearson. Clearly he is an ardent supporter and advocate of John Howard's opposition to the 'Black Armband view of history'.
It is time Noel Pearson identifies who he is and what he truly represents. This man who it is said has gained millions of dollars for his organisation, must now be held accountable for outcomes within his communities and area amongst his people in terms of the benefits that have flowed to the people.
It is time for Noel Pearson to show us the outcomes achieved from the millions granted to him by governments and other agencies. Let him take the ABC, NITV and SBS on a journey of his achievements on the last twenty years. With the millions given to Noel Pearson's corporation one would expect that he would have something fantastic to show the rest of Australia, which can be held up as a model. If not, Noel Pearson is a perfect puppet for an oppressive tyrannical regime.
