Abstract

The case of Wurridjal v The Commonwealth of Australia is discussed to arrive at a better understanding of how structural racism systematically disadvantaged indigenous people in the contemporary politico-legal environment. The basic message being conveyed through the Intervention is that it is perfectly acceptable to discriminate against Indigenous Australians and also enact legislation to this effect.
