Like I said, no doubt that there was some wrong doing, something akin to catholic priests and boarding schools in London's olden days... BUT.. and
this is a big but.. the main reason the Europeans took aboriginal children away from their tribes, is because those children were being subjected to
the SAME ABUSE
that is happening to young children in TODAYS
Aboriginal children, including babies as young as seven months, are being raped by community members, with the crimes going largely unreported and
with few cases making it to trial
Dr Rogers cited an example from 2003 in which a man sexually assaulted a seven-month-old baby who he had removed from a room of sleeping adults.
In the morning, her mother noticed blood on the baby's clothes but was too drunk to register what had happened.
In another incident, a male relative took a two-year-old girl into the bush and digitally penetrated her anally and vaginally at the same time. He
returned the toddler to her father's camp, crying and bleeding.
Both children required surgery for external and internal injuries, Dr Rogers said.
The report concluded that sexual abuse of children in Aboriginal communities had reached crisis levels, demanding that it "be designated as an
issue of urgent national significance by both the Australian and Northern Territory governments."
So, lets ask what happened with all these ''slaves'' we'd apparently kidnapped from local, established.. families..
Think about Australia back in the day.... we were tiny, we had no industry, we were brand new. we could barely feed ourselves, or keep a roof over our
heads.. how were we going to enslave a nations indigenous, across such a wide, desolate expanse and for what purpose?
Keeping in mind that we agree anything to improve the situation for the better, is better... I need to ask, what do you propose we do today, to make a
considering the opportunities and welfare payments open to aboriginal, or foreign people.. there is no excuse what so ever to sit at home, live on the
dole, get drunk and let your kids run rampant in the streets. If my education, accommodation and food expenses were almost completely paid for through
welfare, I have no reasonable excuse not to go to school, learn a skill, go to the workplace and earn a living, yet.. we need to do more!
So what do we do?
The only reasonable answer is to hire a stupid amount of social workers, have a security guard accompany them every day, go to every ghetto, knock on
every door and demand an answer for:
1. Why isnt your child in school
2. Why are you drunk
3. Why are you spending welfare on booze
4. Why arent you working
.... but, we cant be honest can we!
