Adam Goodes’ Spear Dance belongs to all Australians

In response to the racists booing of Swan’s player, Adam Goodes, I would love to see the entire Sydney Swans respond in support of Adam with a flash mob style spear dance as a show of solidarity and if I dream even further, to see the entire AFL perform this in solidarity and recognition of the rich and ancient history of manhood in this country…. to let this be a pivotal moment that changes the racist climate of this country. If all NZers can celebrate the Haka, then Aussie footballers can join together, indigenous and non indigenous, in the spear dance to show these racists what real Australia could be and leave them wondering which team they wish to be on… racist losers or part of Australia with a rich cultural heritage we can all acknowledge, learn, share in and celebrate together. . The racist’s booing Adam Goodes are ignorant sychophants following each other’s pitiable lead to nowhere. Perhaps they could listen to something other than their infantile booing and actually learn something of their own place in Australian history.
