In a world run by moonbats, the only way to get ahead is to be a member of a victim group. What are white guys to do? In Australia, they adapt:
Sydney law academic Mark McMillan, has won one of our richest prizes for Aboriginal students — the Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship.
Aboriginal, huh? Here’s a picture of McMillan:
If he can pass for an Aborigine, why not a woman of color?
McMillan has gone one better still: he’s also won the Black Women’s Action in Education Foundation Scholarship, originally intended to help educate black women, not white men.
The lucky beneficiary of politically correct spoils explains why looking like any other white guy makes him all the more the oppressed black Aboriginal female:
“I am a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned Aboriginal Australian …
“As a child, I grew up expecting everyone to be like me, to look like me — with the blonde hair and blue eyes.
“Clearly, my naive ideas about how Aboriginal people were ‘supposed’ to look were wrong. But being Aboriginal and fair and blonde was normal to me and I grew up in a world where I was treated ‘normally’ …
“Impeding my growth from that young person into the adult I wanted to become was the profound issue of identity. I was a white black man … I was becoming a victim.”
Incredibly, his shtick is on the level — and it works. MacMillan evidently has an Aborigine somewhere up his family tree. It’s unclear how he convinces people that he’s a woman, but he does proclaim himself to be a “proud gay.”
McMillan isn’t the only one working this swindle:
Sydney arts academic Danie Mellor, this week won our richest prize for Aboriginal artists — the $40,000 Telstra Award.
Here’s the allegedly Aboriginal Danie Mellor:
Given the requisite lack of honor, only the thinnest strains of non-European ancestry are required now to achieve the treasured status of sniveling victim.
