I as an Australian citizen unreservedly and whole heartedly apologise for the Caucasian invaders (my ancestries) disgusting and horrible genocide of
the Australian aboriginals and particularly the sickening mass slaughter of the Tasmanian inhabitants, I am ashamed of my countries past, and ashamed
to find out only now in my early 20's, what I had never been told in school.....that being:
the completely unnecessary, brutal & indiscrimate slaughter of every single aboriginal in Tasmania. I can't put this into words in a way that it will
do my emotions justice, nor do justice to the events I'm talking about,
Just please accept that I sincerely want to apologise & that I hope it will mean something and that maybe I can be forgiven for the sins of my
p.s) the aboriginal people of Australia, with all they had to offer, could have been the greatest gift to all of humanity the modern world has seen,
instead they were mutated by the white man, interbred, culture destroyed...and now we have a distinct gulf between the aboriginal man at the bus stop
in the CBD, and the aboriginal shaman in NT....it is a saddening reality to have grown up in.
P.P.S) sorry to op author, I know this is slightly off topic, but I needed to get it off my chest, and I thought this thread would provide a positive
context to envelop my post & provide a larger audience for the apology to reach, than any other way I can think of.
