The British have more reason to be proud of "Australia Day' than the Aussies...

Its Australia Day, and I am Australian.

I'm German... everyone knows our dark history.

If YOUR history with the Aboriginals means you have to hide your national identity... well, then I guess I'll better find me a rock to hide forever.

Its called compassion.
nobody wants you to apologise, or take burden for what our ancestors did. But it is our generation who can bridge the gap in this country and i think it is something worth debating about. the cultural significance of what this day is and what it is about are not well understood.
I love Australia and i love the fact that we have a day to celebrate this but it shouldnt be on a day where its historical meaning isolates the first race in this country.
If my opionion is so radical then so be it but i see importance in uniting this country and not isolating the first Australians in the process.

So what exactly are you doing about it?

I thought so.

Just talking.

Right?

That's enough. The British flag was raised on the first Australia Day. It was another colonial victory for the British.

God save the Queen.

You can only do so much to try and help those who cannot help themselves. We have acknowledged that mistakes were made in the past, that people were treated unjustly. We have contributed money and resources into helping bridge the gap. We have made an official apology on behalf of all Australians.

Aboriginal Australians living here today are not the original inhabitants of this piece of land either - the original inhabitants died years ago. If they do not like Australia and what it represents, then maybe they should leave.

I don't understand how pride in one's own people is racist.

Racism is only the view of others as being less.

Exactly.

No country would progress if we judge them on previous generation's actions.

The truth be told I'll bet your perceptions of the "first Australians" are clouded. Aboriginals Per se are not the "First Australians". The First Australians are actually those alive when Federation was declared in 1901. Regardless of their nationality whether of British, Aboriginal, European, Asian, Pacific Islander, Maori whatever. If they were here in 1901 they were the first Australians. It does not matter where you were born if you were here in 1901 your one of the first Australians.

The first fleet peoples were not Australians in any way nor should they be referred to that way. They were British & Irish for the most part and were not Australians in any capacity.

Nobody was actually an "Australian" until the country of Australia was proclaimed and the colony of Australia made insolvent and that includes my first fleet ancestors as well.

I suppose you even want to change the flag as well? Republican?

well i think talking about it and debating it is a good start. As is and understanding and acknowlegment,
i have added my voice to this conversation so perhaps that is what i am doing about it?

i know what you are trying to do here but i don't think you are smart enough to have a logical discussion about it.
you asked me to bring it on and i have and quite frankly i have just kicked your ass on the topic and this thread will forever be a testament to that.
goodbye
