Breaks my heart reading this thread. Racists who don't even know they are racists. Bigoted dim wits who think they are being politically correct.
Slim excuses which remember only half of history.
For the record this land was occupied by tribes for 40,000 years before white man arrived to live in this country. Those settlers did not adopt the
laws and customs of the owners of this land. They did not try to assimilate with the existing culture. They declared
which means"Land belonging to no-one" and systematically killed the inhabitants
and stole their land.
The misguided lies about the stolen generation, and the ongoing racist intervention in the Northern Territory are very much history written by the
winner. The truth is these measures were taken to "educate the savages". Even today, the subjects of these interventions are virtual prisoners,
unable to spend their "government vouchers" is any thing but state approved shops, which over charge and under provide, trapping more generations in
And the land that they legally own (There has been no treaty in this country - we are all on stolen land) makes big companies like Woodside, and BP
Billions of dollars.
Even now there is a plan to destroy sacred rock art on the Burrup, which is up to 20,000 years old, in order to build the worlds largest gas hub.
Destroy sacred aboriginal sites which are older than the last ice age and which depict animals long extinct here? How can they get away with it?
Because the locals were thrown off their land, raped, beaten killed or subjugated by the white fella.
I would urge readers from all around the world to discover what is really going on here. It is a national disgrace.
So drop the crap about people coming here and assimilating. Drop the crap about aboriginal people blending in to your young society. Perhaps they want
to be true to their culture and tradition? A culture and tradition white Australia has tried to destroy from day one!
Always was, always will be Aboriginal land!!!!
