Look, I have nothing against Aborigines. I can see how poorly they are treated in their regional communities. Don't think that I am knocking
Aboriginies at all.
However, your quote above does not sit right with me. Just because your relations were here for Xthousands of years, how does that make your claim
stronger than anyone else's claim for land?
I was born in Melbourne. I am a native Australian, by birthright, as were my parents. Using your reasoning, I should also have a claim to some land.
No, my heritage isn't as long as your's, but seeing that I was born here and I have fathered children here, then my family heritage and ancestary
is being spawned here. The only difference between us is that your relations go back Xthousands years, mine don't. My family spirits are here just
as much as your's are.
Personally, I don't think that anyone really has any claim to land, whether by birth, ancestary, or paid ownership. However, that's another topic
that has nothing to do with Hayabusa. I'm not trying to argue with you. Peace, ok.
For the third time, I've had enough of my own thread!
