I agree to a point.
One thing I've noticed is that native Australians only seem to cry about native land titles when something is found on the land worth money. Before
that happens, they would never have set foot or considered it valuable.
Lately, it seems every piece of sand on Australia is native title lands, any time anything happens they make a fuss about wanting their cut. What do
they do with 'their' cut? they surely don't invest it in 'their' culture, schools, hospitals, roads... most of it goes to the grog shop.
My best friend of 25yrs worked in housing development for Aboriginal communities. He was one of the labourers who would travel to these remote regions
and build brand new 3bdrm homes for aboriginal communities.
He would go there once a year to build new homes. You know what they do with these brand new, tax payer funded homes?
1. Rip up the floors to use as firewood
2. Tear down the walls and graffiti them
3. Have bonfires and 'gatherings' in the lounge rooms
4. Animals sleep inside, they pass out drunk on the verandah.
I'm sorry but the native title land claims are nothing but a money grab!
