I am African Australian. I am literally 'black' by name (my surname 'Lemoh' means 'black' in the Mende language of Sierra Leone). I am brown of face, but unlike some, I do not choose to identify primarily as Black in this country. To me, 'Black' in Australia has meant 'Aboriginal' - not in the racial sense, but in the political sense.
