The article also highlights the many different types of human identity based on ethnicity, race, age, sexuality, gender, language, class, physicality profession as well as religion. Paridies talks about the different indigenous people located in Australia and how there has been debates regarding the indigenous identity. The author also talks a little about his race which is Aboriginal-Anglo-Asian Australian whereby he considers himself both white and Asian. However, he continues to mention that he is unable to speak the Aboriginal language and he is not connected to his ancestral lands. Paridies tells the reader of the suffering that indigenous people have gone through due to discrimination, marginalization, and more so exclusion that exists even today (Paradies, 2006).
