Puzzling support for Olympic Torch Relay

I found it strange that Aboriginal elders welcomed the Beijing Torch Relay to Canberra.

For one oppressed people to welcome the Chinese, who oppress the Tibetans, is just weird.

Also just as troubling is aboriginal Olympic gold medallist Nova Peris’s decision to run with the torch. Honestly, athletes just don’t think further than sport. The same goes for you, Thorpie and SMH journalist Jacquelin Magnay.
