A Facebook Friend Just Sent Me This Personal Message Re: australiaaa day
Australia day is for both of us Walha, Your just as much a part of Australia as we are.
Remember the Jew’s they believed they are a Unique Race.
It’s become very narcissistic dividing sides and believing one side is more unique than the other.
We should both come together.
Australian culture is blended. We should hold your culture very proud.
Aboriginee culture should never be forgotten.
Our ancestors are just as important as your ancestors are.
It’s time for the aboriginee people, to forgive what happened in the past and get on to making Australia a much better place for both of us.
My Response to my Facebook Friend and Any Others Who May Believe and Feel the Same:
Thank you for your reply but I am sorry but I must disagree with you in this matter.
Have you ever been treated as a third class citizen in your own country?
Have you ever had to always have in your possession a ‘Permit’ to travel in your own country and get arressted if you could not present it to Police?
Have you ever been told to give up your language, culture and spiritual beliefs or in fact have it beaten severely out of you?
Have you ever have to prepare your children for the racism and belittlement they would have to endure each day when they left the house to attend school, go into shops or simply walk the streets?
Have you ever experienced the pain of having your children taken away – not because you was a bad parent – but simply because your skin was black?
Have you ever experience not being counted along with other people, sheep, cattle, and kangaroos?
Have you even told you cannot travel overseas without first getting permission by the Government?
Have you ever been issued with an Exemption Certificate to say you are no longer an Australian and therefore can no longer associate with you fellow Australians and especially your Australian Family?
Have you ever seen your child buried into the sand up to their heads and have people place bets to see who will be first to knock your child’s head off?
Have you ever had you property/lands/home taken away because to people who took it away said your were a non-existence person?
Will you ever celebrate any such future public holiday that will then celebrate all the above?
Please answer me all the above?
