An idea to DNA test Indigenous Australian’s to check if they are actually Indigenous, is the ‘purest form of racism I’ve heard’, according to CEO of the Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation, Di Baldock.

Earlier this week, One Nation NSW Leader Mark Latham floated the policy as an idea to crackdown on those rorting welfare systems. Whilst this was a policy for the NSW state election, there is the potential that something like this could be implemented nationwide to stop welfare fraud.

Ms Baldock speaks to Brian Carlton this morning about this issue and says that while there are identity issues within Tasmania, this would not be the way to resolve them.
