- According to my measure of the poverty line, nearly 40 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders live below the poverty line. If you are born Black in Western Australia you have a 60 per cent chance of living poor your whole life, and it’s a 3 in 4 chance in the Northern Territory. According to my research, nearly 100 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicides are of individuals living below the poverty line. Nearly 100 per cent of the arrests and of the convictions are of individuals living below this diabolical poverty line. Nearly one in three of the national prison population is comprised of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and though I pray time proves me wrong, I estimate that by 2025 one in two of the national prison population will be comprised of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders – three in four inmates in Western Australia and nearly 100 per cent in the Northern Territory will be comprised of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders.
