“Noonga Talk” is a racist YouTube video promoting hateful stereotypes of Aboriginal Australians. It was uploaded on July 5, 2009 and has been viewed 3,720 times. The video makes a thin pretence at humour but given its racist premise is insulting and offensive to the Australian Aboriginal community.

The stereotypes promoted by the video include presenting Aboriginal Australians as unintelligent, drug dependent, welfare abusers, petty criminals and more. The community is already highly marginalised and poorly represented in our education systems, workforce and other institutions. Such stereotypes only serve to further its isolation and marginalisation.
