    Children to Learn About 'Invasion'

    AUSTRALIA Day - and why some call it "Invasion Day" - will become compulsory topics for all primary and secondary school students.

    Education Minister Peter Garrett will announce today that "the significance of January 26" will become a non-negotiable part of history classes under the new national curriculum.

    The lessons will cover "what (Australia Day) means to different groups of Australians, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders".

    Some indigenous groups consider Australia Day, which marks the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet, to be "Invasion Day".

    Whites did invade Australia, and displace the aboriginal population - that's the plain truth. Although I'm white, I don't feel much responsibility for the situation, because I wasn't there when it happened during the 150 or so years after 1788, but it's no skin off my nose to acknowledge that aboriginal culture did get run over by a big white bus.

    I feel sorry for current day aboriginals because they're in such a difficult situation - their way of life as a people has been made impossible, but by the same token, current day aboriginals "weren't there when it happened" either, so it gets to a point where they're passing down from generation to generation a feeling of entitlement, but the simple fact is none of us -black or white - are owed anything from anyone when we get expelled from the womb here on god's green earth.

    Gotta say, I agree wholeheartedly. Was Australia invaded by the British? Absolutely. Were Aborigines treated badly? Yes. Do I personally feel responsible? Hell no! I feel for these people, I really do but I dont see exactly what Aboriginals are trying to do to better themselves as a people. Sitting around drinking, fighting, sniffing petrol, getting locked up and living off welfare and blaming the White man for all your problems is not going to solve anything. They seriously need to start taking some collective responsibility for themselves as a people and fix the problems in their community and stop trying to blame everybody else for it. Until that happens they will continue to go on the downward spiral so many of them are on.

    It's perfectly possible, as a strong White Aryan, to have empathy for a people while not being sorry for what your race did. MIGHT IS RIGHT, and the White race expanded because it could. We came to America and seized this continent. What gives us the right? Nature, because we could. Because the natives could not defend it. Heil Nature! What gave the Australian warriors the right to take Australia? Their might! Heil Australia! I salute you.

    Might is right, so right now, we're all very, very wrong. When the Aryan renaissance comes about, we shall be very, very, VERY right.
