ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the insights of activist Noel Pearson on the evils of passive welfare, criticizing the Australian government for giving the Blacks too much welfare money with no strings attached. He tackles the academic influence of Pearson as a scholar of American and Australian political history. He believes on the fact that Pearson is a student of history who has a little understanding of his own and has a complete lack of authenticity in the eyes of Aboriginal people.
