Last Thursday, Professor Larissa Behrendt was given the job to head a review of Aboriginal higher education. It was the same day we learnt about the disgusting remark she made about Bess Price on Twitter, namely "I watched a show where a guy had sex with a horse and I'm sure it was less offensive than Bess Price".
Now three dedicated people with some influence have come out in support of Bess Price. Dr Sue Gordon, former NT intervention boss and magistrate was the first Aboriginal person to head a government department in Western Australia; Warren Mundine, former ALP president; and indigenous independent MP Alison Anderson. They all want Julia Gillard to think again.
