thats what I meant. That land acknowledgment thing. It’s so lame that Aussies went from the global alphas to these weird apologetic cringelords in like a decade.
Yeah, it's the politicians who push that shit.
Australians are very apathetic. We know our government sucks. We hate our government. There was a saying for a while that said "Love my country, hate my government "
I guess it's deep.rooted from our convict days.
So Australians accept that our government sucks, accept that they do what's in their interests and so they just ignore the government.
The overwhelming majority are anti PC woke.
If you read Australian news stories about something like this the comments section will be 99% laughing and making fun of them.
There are distinct ussue that surround our aboriginal population. Most Australians repect them, want the best for them, but also expect there has to be an effort both ways.
There was some crazy stat where if the goverments held back all the money they spent on Aboriginals, every two years they could make a one off payment of 1 million dollars to every single aboriginal.
It's a crazy amount of money and resources.
Unfortunately there are certain things at the world and UN level that keep getting thrown our way.like health outcomes for them. On paper it's looks really bad the difference between white and black health outcomes. But there are realities to it. The amount of substance abuse is off the charts. Alcohol, drugs, petrol sniffing, it's bad. So how.do you stop that? Do.you make a law that says no Aboriginals can drink alcohol? Do you single them out for draconian laws? No, that's racist. Their children are not looked after as well as white kids, that's a fact. There's alot of child abuse and domestic violence in their communities. Our country made the terrible mistake of taking aboriginal children away from their poor conditions and adopted them out to white parents to try and give them better outcomes. That was an obvious mistake and caused no end of hurt and division in the community. It is known as the stolen generation.
Another factor is that a number live in isolated remote communities. These might be 1000kms away from a major town with Doctors and hospitals. There might be 50 people in that local aboriginal community. So how do you provide health resources to them? You can build a hospital for 50 people, and the nature of their life is they could all move 50km to another area. What do you do? Build another one? So they fly doctors in every So often to do check ups. They have diabetes, but don't loom after their health. What do you do? Force them by law to do their insulin?
There is no easy solution. The overwhelming majority of white Australians want the best outcomes for them. They are the traditional inhabitants of this country.
And of course, there is always t small minority of white activists who are using their name to create problems.
