Aboriginal Blues stars Cody Walker and Josh Addo-Carr have stated that they will not sing the national anthem for the first match between NSW and Queensland at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday night.

They believe that & # 39; Advance Australia Fair & # 39; does not represent indigenous people.

Mundine, a former NSW player, said that the national anthem is a racist song and that white players should support the boycott, because this would greatly help the debate about injustices against Aboriginals.

Walker and Addo-Carr said that a larger conversation is needed about why indigenous people are absent from the Australian national anthem.

& # 39; I am a proud Australian man, but also a proud native man. If it doesn't stand in front of my people, why should I sing it? & # 39; Addo-Carr told The Sydney Morning Herald.

& # 39; Why can't we recognize the indigenous people of Australia? How hard can it be? & # 39;

Mundine told Wide World of Sports that & # 39; all white boys are not bad & # 39; but that they must join the boycott to show support to the Aboriginals and the community.

& # 39; They see the condition of the Aboriginal people, they see what's going on; the suppression. How limited the chances for Aboriginal people and how many chances there are for white white boys, & Mundine told Wide World of Sports.

& # 39; It's hard, but if they were standing with them, it would be a much more powerful move for what they are trying to do, because then you have to take one action on both sides of the fence. & # 39;

& # 39; They wanted to eradicate the blackness of this country & # 39 ;; Mundine also said that Advance Australia Fair contains language from the White Australia policy era and that it needs to be changed because it does not represent the indigenous population

Mundine also said that Advance Australia Fair contains language from the White Australia policy era and believes it should be changed because it does not represent indigenous people.

& # 39; It's all about Advance Australia & # 39; Fair & # 39; – but that's fair in color. That is why the stolen generations came into play. They wanted to remove the blackness of this country. & # 39;

He asked people to investigate the history of Advance Australia Fair because it is an injustice for the indigenous people of this country.
