    Angela's Gone Batty, I can understand where you are coming from to some degree. I am not sure we have done anyone any favours with the handout mentality that was created to assist our indigenous people. I don't believe that a welfare mentality helps anyone to be honest and this is what we have created, not only among our indigenous, but also among those in public housing and on welfare elsewhere in Australia.

    I think the problem is far too large for the average folk like you and me, or even Pugger, to grasp. It is a situation that has built up over more than 200 hundred years when you talk of the problems among the indigenous. I would love one day for the problems that we see today with alcohol and drug abuse, child nelgect and other welfare issues to completely dissappear.

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    I think there is generalisation everywhere. Just ask any african american man if he is treated the same as his white neighbour in USA! And do people still generalise towards Germans due to Hitler and his regime? Of course it happens...even 65 years after WWII ended.

    Noone called you a bastard for invading the country.. what was said was that the Aboriginal people and many other Australians, believe that it is distasteful to hold Australia day on the day that the Brittish settled on their land.

    It was YOU who turned this thread into what it has become with your horrid depiction of an entire race based on your opinion formed by your neighbours.

    You have no tact.. AF made a comment about white Australia policies a while back and even she showed more tact in her argument than you do.
    Af was banned for swearing yet we had a discussion via PM's on this subject and not once did she speak with such hate and vulgarity as you did in this thread.

    If Angela's gone batty can speak in a civilised mature manner why can't you?

    I personally think too many opinions of other ppl get lumped straight into the 'racist' catagory that really don't belong there.

    For instance, Mal lives next to a family that are obviously no-hopers. It doesn't matter (or it shouldn't) whether they are black or white or any bloody colour in between.
