I don't really care what some people say about the stolen generation. I have heard too many heart wrenching stories from victims this week. I remain my cynical self as always of course. Maybe dirt poor, living on a river bank under a bit of bark, kind of like my stepmother grew up, except she was white, you could be taken away from your mother or the mother could lose you by policy of the government.
Ask any mother, in any country of the world about having her child taken from her, even if she is a drug fucked drunk, it could be life devastating for her and perhaps for the child.
No, I shan't wear any argument. Taking children from the mother just because they were half white and half black was wrong. Of course there are many variables and times when it was the smart thing to do, but the essence was wrong.
Sorry Day, whenever it was, was my day off from work. I listened to quite a lot on the wireless and tears welled up many times.
But you black c*** who tried to freak me out by getting into my face and frightening me from around the corner, well, I saw you do that again this week to someone. You have porked up a bit love since you did that to me. You are looked a bit older, but I remember you.
Yeah, very mixed emotions.
