  1. We've all been on this planet the same time
    Yet some people invented created added nothing to the world
    Others created wonderful things and didn't expect everything to be given to them
    Poor me. Boo hoo ..

  2. Wow, in America Black people call our older folk 'Auntie' or 'Unc/Uncle' too! that's crazy. I need to get to Australia and compare notes with some Aboriginal people.

  3. ALM – All Lives Matter for Jesus Christ. Everyone is a victim of pre-existing sin. For God all lives are equal. God loves everyone unconditionally. Jesus Christ came from heaven to earth for one purpose only – to die on the Cross for remissions of pre-existing sins of every single person and resurrect.Β  Jesus Christ providing forgiveness of pre-existing sins, salvation from eternity in hell, and free entry to eternity in heaven for all who repent of sins in Jesus Christ.
    Otherside of death is eternity. Eternity in hell. Or eternity in heaven through Jesus Christ. Penalty of pre-existing sin already paid by Jesus Christ on The Cross. Accept Jesus Christ, be saved from pre-existing sin and eternal hell for free.

  4. If no police zone, in Australia.

    But later the next year, the prediction warns are true.

    "The George Floyd memorial massacre/ The 30's Mafia massacre after caused by conspiracy liars by defending Al Capone".

  5. I'm not black but I'm darker than this aboriginal woman. can I tell you the story of Beersheba when the Aussie troops stormed a desert fort and 1000's were killed? How about the story of 6 million Jews gassed, shot, starved, raped, etc?
    My point is you don't see the Jews protesting and asking for handouts from the Germans, do you? You don't see the families of those who died for this great great country asking for compensation from the pommies hey? They sent the Aussies in and kept their own troops back.
    Aboriginals indigenous whatever you want to be called did have an oppressed past, but not all, and these days it's been over 100 years since any oppression happened, Blacks in Australia actually have more rights than whites, more opportunities, and more avenues for help. We work, pay tax, limit the family we can have as a matter of being able to support kids properly yet we pay to bring up someone else's children who will one day grow to hate us. I use the word them and us as BLM (is) a racist movement but it's strange how we see the majority of protesters and idiots like this woman all being white? How hypocritical!
    Why should myself and millions of Aussies who pay taxes continue to pay for something we had nothing to do with? Not all white Aussies treated blacks poorly, in fact, my family employed 4 blacks with fair pay and food and board. What was considered really good pay back then. I've also lost 3 relatives to various wars defending this country so to say Australia is a bad place is an insult to them.
    This movement is nothing more than playing a victim card when the truth is there are no victims in Australia, Australia stands for work hard and get into it so one day you can live nice. Most accept the work hard bit, but victims always stay victims. Sorry but the Aussie black do it to themselves, it's over, understand that and get on with it. I'm not paying to bring up your kids.

  6. This African said 4000 people died in custody? that was Africa, this black fella saying he's tired of being viewed as an animal? No one views you as an animal mate, but if you label all white people as viewing you that way then you got serious issues. Do you work and pay taxes? If you hate the white society that much then go live out bush, the reason you pay tax is to have safeguards in the society like police, fire and ambulances, and hospitals and streets and the list is endless. if you don't contribute then you don't have a say about those things. This is now by the way, what happened 100 years ago is not the white mans fault, it's those few people back then. You can't blame Germany for Hitler, it's the same thing, it's over mate.

  7. You should blame the bad police because they are the ones that bring the fear to the public and they think they will just do what ever they want because there cops honestly it’s about maintaining the law not to make it injustice the public does not tolerate violence in Australia they go straight to hell

  8. BLM movement is soooo racist. The rip-off founders are unabashed Marxists, taking advantage of its gullible followers. Let's be honest, ALL lives matter.

    If blacks, or any other culture, were willing to integrate into Australian society, descrimination would not exist.
