SYDNEY adidas nmd chukka for sale , Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- A former Australian prime minister says the nation needs to name and shame racism as, like cancer, it's eating away at the fabric of society.

In 2008, before Australia's national parliament, former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologized to Australia's indigenous person for the ""indignities"" they suffered since the earliest days of European settlement adidas eqt 93 17 for sale , including the removal of children from homes to be assimilated into western type society known as the Stolen Generation.

It was intended the apology would bring Australia together in solidarity for justice and national reconciliation.

Delivering a speech to the New South Wales state parliament on Friday to mark the 8th anniversary of his apology to Australia's indigenous Stolen Generation, Rudd said he was perhaps naive to think indignities and racism have ceased and were not at work in Australia five years ago.

""Perhaps I was just wishing that the better angels of our nature had begun to prevail in a newly reconciled Australia,"" Rudd told a national apology breakfast in Sydney on Friday.

""Or perhaps I was just plain wrong.""

Rudd said racism does not represent the mainstream of Australian society, but it would be wrong to conclude there is not a problem of racism against Australia's indigenous peoples, a problem that is ""more confronting than we white folks are ready for www.coorners.com ,"" using many people's justification for booing the Aboriginal Australian Football League (AFL) sports star Adam Goodes as an example.

""I'm not exactly a connoisseur of the finer points of the game,"" Rudd said.

""But I think the claim that this was to do with Adam Goodes as a sportsman and not to do with his Aboriginal identity, I think that claim, is 100 percent bullshit,"" he said.

""(Racism) is like a cancer that eats away at the fabric of our society - the fabric that binds us together as the wider Australian family adidas nmd shoes for sale ,"" Rudd said, adding even if expressed by a small minority, racist words ""still carry great weight, because they are powered by the force of history.""

""The next time any of us see or hear racist behaviour, don't be silent. Name it. Shame it. For racism in any form has no place in the Australia of the 21st century.""


Author George R.R. Martin has released a chapter from a yet-unpublished book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series - the basis of the hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones - but says he is still not done writing.

Since 2012 adidas nmd for sale , the 67-year-old writer has published several excerpts from the sixth book in the series, titled The Winds of Winter.

"You want to know what the Sand Snakes, Prince Doran, Areo Hotah, Ellaria Sand Women's Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Core Black Peach Restock , Darkstar and the rest will be up to in Winds of Winter? Quite a lot, actually," Martin wrote in a blog post late Tuesday.

"The sample will give you a taste. For the rest, you will need to wait."

The text follows the journey of Arianne, the daughter of Doran Martell 2016 Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black Shoes Clearance , to the castle of Mistwood that is the home of House Mertyns. Her character has not appeared in the television series.

The author noted that the new sample chapter does not mean he is finished writing the new book, pointing to a photo on the blog showing him with a monkey on his back.

The five volumes in Martin's series were published between 1996 and 2011.

The popular TV show has covered the story arcs in the volumes that have been published so far.

The current season six, which began airing late last month, is the first not based on Martin's books.

Martin missed an original deadline for Winds of Winter in late October and announced in January that he would not be able to finish the manuscript in time for the scheduled publication early this year.

More than 20 million fans tune in to each episode of Game of Thrones, featuring Machiavellian intrigue and blood-curdling violence as feuding clans in seven mythical kingdoms struggle for power.

NAIROBI Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Core Black White Clearance , June 22 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations on Thursday launched a new roadmap to boost Kenya's efforts to achieve inclusive development in line with the country's Vision 2030 blueprint on socio-economic transformation.

The 2018 -2022 UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) will also help galvanize support from bilateral donors, private sector and civil society for Kenya.

"This is an innovative approach to development that will enable Kenya to solve poverty that affects a significant segment of the population," said the UN Resident Coordinator for Kenya Siddharth Chatterjee.

Chatterjee noted that the roadmap outlines priority areas that should be implemented to ensure that Kenya achieve the vision of becoming a middle-income economy.

Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury Henry Rotich hailed the new development roadmap, saying it will unleash prosperity in all parts of the country.

Rotich said that the implementation of the programs through the road map will address many development programs earmarked by the government.

The roadmap outlines key components of the document as well as stages of development to be taken into account so that a new, effective framework aligned to Kenya's Vision 2030 exists by the time the current one Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Shoes Core Black Solar Red Sale , UNDAF 2014-2018, expires in July, 2018.

The roadmap analyses and identifies gaps from the current UNDAF for improvement including on alignment with national, regional and global processes and priorities as well as stakeholder engagement.

It is also aligned with other key UN pillars such as humanitarian assistance, human rights and peace building.

Its launch came as the Kenyan government strives to foster strategic partnerships with multilateral lenders to boost response to a host of humanitarian crisis like influx of refugees Adidas Ultra Boost x Porshe Design Shoes All White , droughts and conflicts.

"The next UNDAF will adopt a paradigm shift that proposes promotion of se. Wholesale Soccer Shirts China Wholesale Hats Wholesale Hats Wholesale Hats Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale NBA Shirts Wholesale NHL Shirts Wholesale NCAA Hoodies
