Indigenous Australians suffer more than non-indigenous Australians in every way anyone can think of from the very beginning of life to death. In every area of societal suffering, it appears Aborigines top the statistics, twice the rate of infant mortality, far lower education rates, far higher incarceration rates, higher alcohol and drug addiction and many more leading to the final insult of dying about ten years earlier than the non-indigenous. Aboriginal people have given a lot in some ways but in general, Australia is not good to these first Australians. Plenty of Australians want positive change for Aborigines and most of them are of the left, politically, just sign petitions and vote for policies while the rights of the Aborigines off. Whether right or right not though the reality is that, the vast majority of Australians rarely see Aboriginal people let alone interact with them. There are no measure steps taken to improve their situation and standard of livings (Seet 2018).
Indigenous prospects of learning
Indigenous Australians consist of small part of the society, but they are more incarcerating with ethnicity and their culture comparing with any other population of the society. Things are not going better. Many young people for example: -Ko
is, Noongars and mu
ays are doing nothing at all but to stem the slide into oblivion. Systems are design into a competition with these Indigenous Australians and very few people really want to run system by themselves. British invaded Australia in the year 1788 assuming that Aboriginal people were inferior to the British. That racism continued throughout the 1800s and 1900s and continues today, The racism that is an integral part of non-Aboriginal Australian society and culture results in Aboriginal people being treated poorly and as less important than non-Aboriginal people, by governments, most government departments, the private sector, and many Australian people. The racism in Australia is cause not only by ‘white superiority’ perceptions but also by the perceived superiority of anyone who is not aboriginal. Until there is some education in Australia about the real history of Australia and its treatment of Aboriginal people there can be no treaty and no end to racism (Collins 2016). The inter-generational disallowance by non-aboriginal people and the problems commit by white settlers in the 1800s, until the mid-1900s, and of the stolen generation, which tore Aboriginal families and cultural memory apart until the 1970s, is also due to this racism. The main cause of racism in Australia was not only the white people but also the non- non-aboriginal people. Australian government spent many thousands of dollars for the welfare of the aboriginal people (estimated 35 billion dollars), $40000 foe every woman, child and man belong to the aboriginal society. The mainstream media does not show the true picture of the aboriginal Australians, though they consider as inferior in society but they are all-human and deserve equal human rights of citizen. White people only shows all sympathies from outside but deep that they still have superiority that is running from generation to generations. It is truly repugnant but racism would not go away unless a person decides to educate him or her in a way that is heart centred on behalf of all people. It is truly the matter of keeping one in other’s place and matter of empathy. Out of poverty and miserable lifestyles, led by these people the only thing left to do is criminal and illegal activity (Taylor 2018). A large network money and drug has put their community in jeopardy. They have astonishing cultural and values, if this community get some gravity in this contemporary world. They are stereotypically a lot of fun to be around, but they have strong personalities and cultural clashes that lead to catastrophic results. There is a great opportunity for these people to run and act as a person of parliament and represents their community. They can be a part to run whole nation and do...
