can an austrlian explain this to me thnks
1788 was the year Australia was ‘settled’ which is a word here that means ‘invaded by white people’ and like it’s a pretty great country nowadays except for the fact that when you bring this up and the fact that it’s had horrible, horrible continuing effects on our indigenous population like in the early 1900s they started up a thing called the Aborigine’s protection act which sounds nice but they used to literally STEAL CHILDREN ‘FOR THEIR OWN GOOD’ and then in 2000 AS IN LIKE FOURTEEN FUCKING YEARS AGO they were like ‘was there really a stolen generation tho lol like i mean it wasn’t that many kids i mean we can hardly call it a generation lmao’
literally the people in power sort of tend to stick their fingers in their ears and go LALALALALALLALALALALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU Australia is actually so fucked up on this front it’s really gross
but yeah a lot of people call australia day ‘invasion day’ and for good reason we have a pretty shitty past that doesnt get talked about like literally all we learned in school about pre-1788 was ‘the aboriginals walked around and did stuff like there was the dreamtime and stories and stuff’ I could go on but that’s it in a nutshell
That reminds me I saw a poster that was like a grand theft auto add except it had a silhouette of Australia in the background and said “grand theft Australia”
I made a thing for our national holiday
Australia: where a HIGH fire danger rating isn’t actually that bad.
