i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring
the stars don’t fucking care who i am or what i do
i owe the universe nothing
i exist on my own terms

*KICKS OPEN YOUR DOOR*
THROUGHOUT THE 50’S AND 60’S (AND EVEN THE EARLY 70’S) ABORIGINAL PEOPLE WERE LEGALLY ANIMALS, THEY COULD NOT VOTE, THEY WERE PUT DOWN IN THE CENSUS AS BELONGING TO THE LAND OWNER THEY WORKED FOR.
HALF ABORIGINAL CHILDREN WERE TAKEN AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILIES AND TAUGHT “CIVILISED WAYS” RIGHT UP UNTIL THE 70’S.
ABORIGINALS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO MARRY OTHER ABORIGINALS, THIS WAS IN THE HOPES THAT THEIR GENETICS WOULD BE “BRED OUT”.
Australia has a dark fucking history and it took until 2007 for it to be acknowledged, with “sorry day”.
In many places in Australia, Aboriginal people are still treated like scum.
At the beginning of school assemblies, there is an acknowledgement of traditional land owners. If it weren’t for that, very few non local-aboriginal children would be aware of the tribe which originally lived in their area.
