There are a few Australians whose forefathers/mothers were thrown in leg irons after being sentenced to this land for life. There crime?stealing a chook to feed their starving family. And no, their families did not get passage here.
They were treated harshly with regular punishment. Australia became known as a resourceful and courageous country on the back of these people, these convicts who built roads and other infrastructure. They weren’t negative about previous times. They accepted it for what it was, the past, and moved forward. The descendants of these so called convicts don’t spend their lives complaint about terrible treatment of previous generations.

Sure, but many of those same convicts were given grants of land by the British government after it’s inhabitants were either killed or moved on with the threat of being killed. Mid last century they granted people a whole country that they took from others.

Former, I don’t want to go into a discussion on who was more harshly done by, I just wanted to point out that they were hard times for everyone. Particularly the Chinese prospectors. The Aboriginals would eat them. It was a tough time.

Woa…huh?

Balm is that a question?

Not really, I dont think Id like the answer. Just hadn’t heard of that before.

Pauline Hanson believes that they did as it justifies her bigoted views.Europeans of the 1800s believed native populations all over the world were cannibals as it gave them an excuse to treat indigenous badly in their colonies

Oh, so she’s the basis of the claim. There ya go. It is racist.

If you want to know more you could read some of the history of the Palmer river gold rush. Some denounce it as myth. I’ve been through that area and was invited by the Wujal Wujal people to stay a couple of nights with them. Wonderful people.

No worries. I only raised it cause it seems like something someone would say to paint the Aboriginals as savages.

Just did a read on that Palmer river gold rush and it seems the Europeans gave the Chinese a hard time and the Chinese have the Aboriginals opium. No mention or links to cannibalism. Dunno man, could be seen as a racist comment unless you have some articles to link? Maybe just delete the comment and ill do the same? probably doesn’t add to the thread anyways.

Hopefully the pre season ratings like wooden spooners and worst pack in the comp really does fire them up.

I really like our pack…it just lacks a real rough rider / leader / stand over bloke like JWH.

Would be MASSIVE for us if Aloiai turned into a pack leader.

Is it an optical illusion or is madge really, really far away? its that or a really poor photoshop effort…or the boys all have massive heads.

@Regan said in Could Israel Folou ignite our Backline:

Just a question how many NRL players think the same as Israel and are allowed to play just because they don’t make public comment ?

But just as I always say if God did not want gay people he would not have made them he loves all his children equal

Hmm, i like it. That means homophobic folk are actually going against gods will which sounds pretty dodgy so I assume will send you to hell.

In Izzy’s world. He goes to hell while gay folk go to heaven. Religion is fun!
