Arundhati Roy on Dalits & Aborigines

[Roy] stated that she wants the money to go to Australian aboriginal activists because she believes that Australian aboriginals are the equivalent of India’s dalits.

“It (untouchability) is one of the most cruel forms of discrimination, but one thing that didn’t happen to them was the attempt to genocidally wipe them out, which happened in Australia.”
