    #18 God forbid Victoria that you should mention reverse racism over here, you'll find yourself arrested or under caution. It's like 'Reverse Lend Lease' during the war you never hear of it, it's brushed under the carpet, you can bet your average American (or UK citizen for that matter) has never heard of it

    With regards to claim that Australia was invaded and conquered by 1st. fleet, cant see the scurvy unwashed , disease ridden convicts being much of an invasion force. Far more trouble for their escorts than the local fully fit aboriginals.

    Think more discovered than invaded ?

    Had to draw the line at times, sending back to emergency these patients requesting the doctors to remind these types we were there to help not to be abused with "that" sort if language.
    They usually came back quieter.... though I suspect aided by some judicious sedation!

    One of the biggest problems here Duke is the Law, Aboriginal,s are around 19% of the population but have about 30% of the people in Jail, and the young blokes are the worst treated, if a young white teenager gets picked up without a license he would in all probability get a caution and a small fine, if he is an aboriginal he will get6 a month in jail, these people are still living in an age that we can't comprehend and can will themselves to death, 900 hundred have died in jail there is always talk of an inquiry but mainly nothing happens. As Less said the aboriginal elders have a lot to answer for as well.

    A lot of what I’m reading on this thread kind of flies in the face of John in Oz’s earlier response. I don’t get the impression that they are treated as equals. Also, is the use of the word Abbo acceptable? Just asking given the PC world we live in. I’m not casting any judgement here, just interested in how racism, if any, is handled down under.

    Hello Duke
    I am afraid i will refrain from posting my views, as i know that it could cause all kinds of reprisals! But coming from a Country that you well know had and still has a lot of disagreement amongst the People ( South Africa) to me there is a very high similarity here to what has gone by there!

    But like all Countries and just my opinion is that the different Cultures and Races will and can never Mix to a 100% level, there will always be Conflicts amongst People , its an age old thing!

    So to end its your own Judgement as to what happens in Aussie regarding your Question.
    Cheers

    I say NO MORE!!!

    You can’t legislate for people to make Love Thy Neighbour a positive law. The more you insist on this the more anti feelings are going to be aroused. The mutual feelings they are looking for have to come from willing people wanting to see changes take place , and not being forced into feelings they don’t have. It is not a natural feeling to many and indeed to whole nations of people ,it is not only colour which is the main excuse given , but goes into centuries of different beliefs and ways of living. Every country and people have their own past history and probably a majority who see no need to change it, for the sake of the lesser amount who only see their own arguments. JS

    Duke, there will always be those who differ on the views of any form of racism.

    Had a brother in law who was with the tax department, sent up to the Northern Territory to see some housing being built for a local Abbos group.
    Good houses but with wooden floors.
    Those wooden floors made good fire wood for those who were allowed to live in them.

    But most of the problems are kept to a small group often egged on by others who use them as weapons in their fight for what ever.
    But many of the protests are in a similar manner.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
