I live in the Melbourne suburbs and I'll see an aborigine maybe once every 6 months, very rarely at any rate. You see more in the city, often drunk,
asking for money or just hanging. In the country and more distant places is wear they usually live, on welfare. This is the sad reality.
The situation is quite complicated, youíd have to live here to understand it.
They were not treated fairly in the past, at all. In 50ís I think, the government would take the children away from the families and foster them into
white families, against their will. I think we call them the stolen generation.
It is near impossible for an aborigine to succeed in a white mans world, itís harsh but this is how it is.
I wish it were different, but the world is often a very unfair place.
