For 40,000 years or more they lived at one with the land and with nature. A spiritual connection that a non Aboriginal could ever understand.
For just over 200 years, white people have lived on this land and now claim ownership over Aboriginal people.
When Europeans first settled in Australia they Murdered, Raped,stole children and forced their way of life on to Aboriginal people.
Now 200 years have come and gone and Aboriginal people suffer with issues like Alcoholism, drug addictions, homelessness, loss of culture but are slowly coming back as they are a very strong culture.
There are so many stereotypes that degrade Aboriginal people that are highly untrue but there are some that are true and are just results of this civil war that goes on in Australia.
People disclaim their religion and their ways saying they are are so primitive. You can say that a rainbow serpent sounds highly unlikely and somewhat like a childish story telling, but if you compare that to any other religion in the world, it it just as likely a giant snake created rivers and mountains as mosses parted the sea, or even the concept that we go to heaven or hell. these are just stories to give us all morals and guidelines to live our lives.
Everyone needs to understand Aboriginal people did not choose this to happen to them nor want this to happen to them. But in moving on, we need understanding and combine contemporary and traditional Australia to have the real Australia that we all need.
For a person to say a racist thing to an Aboriginal and live in Australia id like you to first consider where you came from and how you got here and also remember who's land you are standing on.
Government benifits ARE slowly working and i am a product of that system. I am a 3rd years student studying to be a teacher and so many other Aboriginal people are conforming to the white way . So for every drunk or homeless Aboriginal you may see, just think there are another two trying to do well and help my people.
aboriginal: Aye there brudda you got a dollar??
Before Europeans came to Australia there were hundreds of different tribes and languages. Many were killed and few traditional languages remain.
The word is derived from the latin phrase "Ab Origene," literally meaning "from the origin."
A person of aboriginal descent is an aborigene, or an "abo" if you like.
Lecturer: The aboriginals of the Americas are often referred to as "Indians," because the first European explorers mistakenly believed they had arrived in the Indies.
Thieving anything they can carry, and bash and rob old people or those who can't defend themselves.
They hang around outside bottle shops and the TAB like parasites, waiting for an opportunity to ask people for money, mug someone and take their grog, or break into the cars in the carpark.
They do not work, they don't need to as the government give them money every fortnight for doing nothing. Thy're not required to look for work, because thy're fkn special. Who would employ the smelly pricks anyway ?
When they get arrested, Aboriginal affairs steps in and gets them off.
They are paid extra payments if they send their children to school. These payments are an incentive to keep the little black shits in class.
They are provided free cab rides to school. No white people are entitled to any of these benefits, yet the Aboriginal claims that it's the white man who is racist ?
They whinge and whine that the whites have caused them to lose their culture, yet if they don't get their dole payments, and white mans grog every week, all hell would break loose. They are given housing, and destroy it a week after they move in. After a week they have at least 15 other family members living in the house. After that comes the fighting in the street. Names they call white people include "white cunt" and "whitey".
