Tragedies have occurred and recompense is attempted, it's not really that silly.
It's not the point of the money to take into account generational displacement. Oh and you're right you racist. I do not have any 'community' as my
parents came here from England and Scotland before I was born. My people are Australians, but if I were to follow your logic, then I should be able to
go back to England and demand my little plot of dirt and call demand sovereignty.
Tragedies have occurred and the Australian community has bent over backwards to try and help the Aborigine people gain self respect, but people like
you and marianna mackay continue to deride any attempt at reconciliation as some sort of continuing racist agenda.
If 1 billion dollars for the FUTURE of the Aborigine people is still not enough, then WE AS AUSTRALIANS may as well start up another bloody damn war
and see who will be left standing, because as it is, your mob do not want to be part of this country, you want to go back 200 years and believe that
you will be safe from the evolution of the entire planet as it gets smaller and smaller and your land becomes more desirable to those who'd not give a
single cent to you but still destroy the entire continent.
Not a single half caste Aborigine alive today, to continue to point and blame and hate and throw racist remarks at even their own "coconut" people who
try to work with everyone to get a better deal for your people, would even be alive today had the past not occurred.
Get ON with it, stop festering on hate and move on. Or do you really think letting your children live in an environment where hate and racism and self
imposed segregation is going to solve anything for the next 50 years? A self perpetuating cycle of hate.
If I could get the benefits that are given to a Nyoongar, I guess I'd want to keep that segregation going too, too bloody hard having self respect and
working for a living...
I can't jet set all over Australia to call people filthy white dogs and call people racists and scare the crap out of middle aged women and threaten
to flog old men. I can't do that if I'm not given tax payer funds.
