"Curator's clip description by Romaine Moreton Talking head newscast discussing the 'Aboriginal problem'. In this instance, Lang Hancock offers sterilisation as a solution to 'the problem'.
Curator's notes The news and interview footage in this clip is from a relatively recent time in Australian history. The openness with which sterilisation is proposed as a solution to the Aboriginal problem -- especially the half-castes who are not considered legitimate Aborigines -- frames the way in which the Australian public felt justified in having such discussions publicly. Such opinions are very recent, and still surface in race discussions on the ongoing distinction between 'true Aborigines' and 'hybrid' Aborigines."
