It's a public holiday and some people don't like it. We should, at minimum, rename it to Invasion Day and memorialise all the First Australians who perished as a direct result of White Colonialism. And don't give me any of that "their lives are so much better" bullshit and hold all the "well if [OTHER WHITE NATION] had invaded, they'd have it so much worse" while you're at it.
We have to face facts. WHITE PEOPLE DID BAD THINGS. End of. Now it's time to attempt reparations or at least give the First Australians a little bit of a leg-up so they can have a fair go. I recognise my white privilege and I want to even the playing field however I can.
We can't reset, but we can at least try to repair the way things are.
Today is Patreon Day, so I shall be posting arts and farts and checking on the poll I put up after the Administration decided to do something silly. Admin doing daft things is why I flipped from Steem to Peakd, so I might be moving my bullshit to a new arena if problems persist.
