Duckie Thot, whose real name is Nyadak Thot, is calling out Australians for not stepping up to the plate when it comes to racial injustice. The Sudanese, whose claim to fame was taking third place on cycle 8 of “America’s Next Top Model,” was raised in Australia. Now, she’s coming for the country’s lack of action amid the world’s fight against racial injustice.
She spoke on the recent #BlackOutTuesday and said,
“I woke up this morning with more black squares and posts about what’s going on around the world rather than what’s been going on to indigenous people in our countries since settlement… I’m disappointed, and I’m sad and I’m honestly extremely frustrated.”
She continued to push for Australians to speak up, especially for indigenous groups.
Australians if you really support black lives matter, you will get behind the indigenous communities, and you will tell the world what’s going on and what has happened to the indigenous people to the black people in Australia. You will tell the story and you will tell the right story… You cannot ignore this.
She added that she’s suffered police brutality herself.
Australia you have to join, you have to fight the right fight and you have to tell them the right thing right now… Be responsible. Hold yourselves accountable. I myself have experienced police brutality in Australia. I myself have been hit, I myself have been choked… you cannot fight this anymore. The whole world is listening… Do not let them know about Par- tell our story first… You cannot look across the ocean when you do not wanna look in your own backyard.
