This local ad from a Cairns newspaper was recently brought to our attention by one of our readers.
Sounds a bit like the whines we get from the bogots about Indigenous people.
So we did some research and found out it was a legitimate ad from a legitimate documentary producer.
The producer is in fact Ronan Sharkey who was responsible for the excellent SBS series Go Back to Where you Came From
Now Ronan is running a somewhat different ad on the Flinders Uni blog
So we were wondering firstly why the newspaper ad was obviously targeted to certain negative attitudes about Indigenous people and also what this says about the attitudes of people in Cairns (or the perceptions people have about attitudes of people in Cairns).
