Australia’s history of racism towards Aboriginals is absolutely disgusting.
Until the mid-60s, indigenous Australians came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an indigenous Australian meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.
To this day, Australia breaks every code of the Geneva Convention when it comes to indigenous Australians and their human rights. The “public housing” that the government has given them are one-bedroom shacks with no running water, no electricity and no gas, that entire families are forced to live in. These shacks are in communities in the outback, as far away from “civilised” society as possible. Out of sight, out of mind.
Indigenous Australians that live in the city are commonly forced to live in very dangerous and derelict areas that the government gives very little funding towards. Redfern in Sydney is a highly indigenous Australian populated suburb that is rife with crime, unemployment and horrendous living conditions. The government does next to nothing to help these people, either.
Whenever riots have broken out as a result of incredibly low morale, the police and the government are very quick to point all the blame at the indigenous Australians and say that they are the cause of their own problems, rather than looking at what the actual cause is.
Unemployment rates amongst indigenous Australians is astronomical. Crime rates are astronomical. Suicide rates are extremely high within the indigenous Australian community. Death from inadequate living conditions and inadequate health care is common. Brutality towards indigenous Australians is common.
The way many indigenous Australians are forced to live is equivalent to that of what one would expect from a third-world country. Indigenous Australians are considered by the UN to be one of the most horrendously marginalised groups in the world.
And how does the government amend all of this? With a national “Sorry Day”, where white people plant a hand in some designated area of soil as a token of their white guilt, and then continue going about their white privileged day.
On top of that, white people here commonly bitch and complain about how “good” indigenous Australians have it and how “thankful” they ought to be to the white man for improving their quality of life. Meanwhile, indigenous Australians have lost almost all sense of identity and culture because of white colonisation.
What is left of Aboriginal identity and culture has been nearly completely destroyed. And most people in this disgustingly privileged country do not give a single god damn fuck.
Australia is a disgusting country when it comes to racism. I am disgusted by my own country.
You’re aware that this was English people right? Not Australians.
THAT ENTIRE FUCKING PARAGRAPH IS A LOAD OF UTTER BULLSHIT^^ THEY’RE GIVEN EVERYTHING IN THIS COUNTRY AND ARE UNGRATEFUL CUNTS BECAUSE OF IT. They get double the welfare of a white person, they expect everything from us and justify their rape, assault, theft, alcoholism, drug abuse and occasional murder with what we apparently did to their ancestors 100 years ago. Every fucking day in Perth, the city I live in, some poor white person is assaulted by a mob of these subhuman cunts, but as soon as a white person lays a finger on them it’s considered a racial attack. The amount of fucking times these cunts have come to me for a cigarette and taken all my shit when I refused, they’re scum. SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP. AND STOP TREATING THEM LIKE THEY’RE SUPERIOR. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. I don’t view myself as a racist person, but I will tell you accurately that 80% of this ‘race’ are thieving, alcoholic pieces of shit who bring down the rest of those who are actually decent human beings. I think this because I’ve experienced first hand, all my life, their disgusting criminal nature. Rant fucking over.
I’m sorry, but what the fuck. You’re not a racist? YOU ARE EVERYTHING A RACIST IS. You called these innocent human beings subhuman. You’re worthless. You are a worthless human being. I see your ancestors criminal background didn’t skip your generation. Where is your humanity?

I had the pleasure of finally meeting with Tim Okamura while in New York and got to strike a couple of poses for a portrait. If you haven’t come across his work before, it’s about time you did! Represented by galleries in New York, Canada and Italy, Okamura is an extraordinary painter who "investigates identity, the urban environment, and contemporary iconography through a unique method of painting - one that combines an essentially academic approach to the figure with collage, spray paint and mixed media."
An absolute pleasure to be in company with, I visited his studio and got to see a bit of his creative process before downing a couple of beers with him and some new friends. I am very excited to see more work of his. - Yagazie
