Comment on Anti-fracking Greens: Are jobs for the dole schemes legal? by James T Smerk.

“He’s been in politics for the Labor Party for a long time, but he has done very little for Aboriginal people.” I think this is true.
However, posting the coconut meme isn’t helping either.
Let’s be mature and open to both sides of any conversation and debate facts instead of just trying to shoot down people we don’t agree with.

Museums: First Nations demand to speak for themselves
There is an old saying “History is written by the victors”. Is true and will always be true in my opinion.

I believe there are always 3 sides to a story, one from the victors, one from the other party and the truth. The truth is rarely known as both sides tend to embellish their stories in some way.

I think it would be novel to have two wings of a museum – one telling the white man’s story and the other telling the indigenous Australians’ story.

On a side note I don’t know why Great Britain has never been held to account for their actions in the landing on this country.
