“Put more beautiful people of colour on TV and connect viewers in ways which transcend race and unite us. That’s the real team Australia.” – Indigenous Australian actress Miranda Tapsell, of the Larrakia people, won two coveted industry awards at the TV Week Logie Awards. Her speech references Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s racist phrase, “Team Australia,” which he has used repeatedly to divide the nation on issues of immigration, asylum seekers and Indigenous rights. Watch her speech and squeal with delight like I did. 🙂
