Just returned from surf trip in Aus ...« on: July 02 2007 02:07:00 »
Just returned from surf trip in Aus; loved Snappers - but look at what you guys did to the Aborigines...? I am shocked. I though we treated the Indians badly - but what have you done? They are so marginalised that they have turned to alcohol - drowning their suppression. I spoke to one Aborigine surfer and what he told me was heartbreaking man! Taking his land away from him like that..
I glad I come from Cali....

Oh yeah man I used to read the origional Americans used to cut out the Vaginas of Indian females and wear them on their heads as a hat.
You should have read what some Aborigiones used to do to each other.
So many of them later sided with the whites to hunt down their own as native policemen. ( I've been beaten up bad a few times sticking up for the Aborigiones.)
I keep my money in my own country. It is bad news when greed just destroys the enviorment. Aloha

Thanks OZ, and the Aloha people? - ripped off by us as well....imagine you are a native Hawaiian before Captain Cook (or Capt. Kook), and it's before the whites arrived; ..you're siting at the Pipe watching these insane lefts and rights and wondering "Can a man ride on da water or maybe even 'in' da water..?" (he means in the tube bro'). Years later.. the best you got is 2 blondes; AI and his bro' BI, they are local, but they ain't black man! They're winning but they ain't true Hawaiian! The Aborigines, the 'Aloha' Hawaiian folk and the US Indians - all ripped off by us whites............?

Yeah mate! They bring down the whole image of Aus. people. What's the matter with 'em? Hugh? Stop feeling sorry for yourselves and make it happen! I am talking to the US Indians, the Aus Abs and the Africans, the original Hawaiians- you just could not see the opportunities.....we are here to stay so get use to it and start surfing dudes!!!!!! Get your mind off your 'history'...! The next generation @ Pipe all have blonde hair.....

Its true that what happened to the Australian Aborigines was a shocking thing, but it is time for them to forgive and move on and until they do nothing will change for them.
