Indigenous rapper wants the lyrics of Australia's national anthem to be changed

Award-winning hip-hop artist and Yorta Yorta man, Adam Briggs says he hasn’t stood for the Australian national anthem since he was “maybe 13 or 14 years-old” after realizing the lyrics didn’t represent Indigenous people. “The idea that Australia is young and free when Indigenous people are some of the most incarcerated people on the face of the earth,” Briggs said. “You know, wealth for toil, only one in 10 Indigenous Australians are financially secure."
