ha, i can't even begin to imagine. i have a friend in mandurah who was freaking out about a shark attack a year or so ago.

mind you, given the beaches in east auckland, even at high tide the sharks can't swim at those tiny water depths.

Not to dwindle back to the subject, but here's a really good article on a good site that everyone should read because dammit I said so. Show it to people you hate. Quote the statistics in an argument. Just find a use for it.

Aboriginal Racism Australia - Black Racism History

That's an excellent article, Bonnie, it really is, even if it did make me feel a bit ill inside.

Aboriginal issues is something very close to my heart. Growing up in the Northern Territory I have lived with Aboriginals my whole life, went to boarding school with them and now teach them at primary school. MY overall feeling towards the MAJOR issues we have in our town is overwhelming saddness. While I believe we need to not focus on past wrongs but instead guide ourselves towards the future using those past wrongs, we are still doing a disservice to aboriginal people.

This is a touchy subject as many people who talk about aboriginal issues are afraid to be called a racist due to their views. Of course we know there are many people out there who have appalling views on aboriginals and other paths in life etc, but what we need to focus on is that this is not a 'black' issue, but a societal issue. I can talk for hours about this, but i won't put you through that!

I saw one of the saddest things today while shopping and it made me want to cry out and rage against it, but unfortunately it seems that people only see the problems not the main issue it stems from and how can we change that?

Love that when the news cut live to the Sydney midnight fireworks - 1pm here - it was the starting gun for drinks in the office today, as it has apparently been the tradition for a decade.
