 Australia’s history of racism towards Aboriginals is absolutely disgusting. 

Until the mid-60s, indigenous Australians came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an indigenous Australian meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

To this day, Australia breaks every code of the Geneva Convention when it comes to indigenous Australians and their human rights. The “public housing” that the government has given them are one-bedroom shacks with no running water, no electricity and no gas, that entire families are forced to live in. These shacks are in communities in the outback, as far away from “civilised” society as possible. Out of sight, out of mind.

Indigenous Australians that live in the city are commonly forced to live in very dangerous and derelict areas that the government gives very little funding towards. Redfern in Sydney is a highly indigenous Australian populated suburb that is rife with crime, unemployment and horrendous living conditions. The government does next to nothing to help these people, either.

Whenever riots have broken out as a result of incredibly low morale, the police and the government are very quick to point all the blame at the indigenous Australians and say that they are the cause of their own problems, rather than looking at what the actual cause is.

Unemployment rates amongst indigenous Australians is astronomical. Crime rates are astronomical. Suicide rates are extremely high within the indigenous Australian community. Death from inadequate living conditions and inadequate health care is common. Brutality towards indigenous Australians is common.

The way many indigenous Australians are forced to live is equivalent to that of what one would expect from a third-world country. Indigenous Australians are considered by the UN to be one of the most horrendously marginalised groups in the world.

And how does the government amend all of this? With a national “Sorry Day”, where white people plant a hand in some designated area of soil as a token of their white guilt, and then continue going about their white privileged day.

On top of that, white people here commonly bitch and complain about how “good” indigenous Australians have it and how “thankful” they ought to be to the white man for improving their quality of life. Meanwhile, indigenous Australians have lost almost all sense of identity and culture because of white colonisation.

What is left of Aboriginal identity and culture has been nearly completely destroyed. And most people in this disgustingly privileged country do not give a single god damn fuck.

Australia is a disgusting country when it comes to racism. I am disgusted by my own country.

:(

As an Australian, I am disgusted by my own country too.

Though, most people I know would agree. I’ve actually never heard anyone not from a few decades ago say that Aborigines have it good, ever, but that’s just me personally. Maybe I just keep a good crowd.

And the Sorry Day was the most pointless thing ever.

A history that is profoundingly disturbing, hope all changed now

NICOLAS GHESQUIÈRE’S FIRST LOUIS VUITTON ADS HAVE ARRIVED

Each of the contributors to Louis Vuitton’s fall 2015 campaign — the brand’s first under the creative direction of Nicholas Ghesquière — have enough industry clout that just one of them alone would have been an impressive get for the brand.

But never one to go small, Ghesquière, along with his longtime creative team (which includes stylist Marie-Amelie Sauvé and casting director Ashley Brokaw), collaborated with Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz and Juergen Teller on a selection of campaign images titled “Series 1.”

The ads are expected to launch in August magazines

The photographers were reportedly given free rein to work with models Charlotte Gainsbourg, Freja Beha Erichsen, Liya Kebede and Jean Campbell on the images and one-minute videos for Vuitton’s website and social media channels. They were shot between New York, Miami and Venice.

“Gender lines are blurred and every person is unique in how they see themselves. For me the body is more than something to be looked at as an object of sexual gratification. The body is a beautiful housing for the soul that we are celebrating in this picture”, David LaChapelle explains.

The claim of the artwork reads “I’M ADAM – I’M EVE – I’M ME” – words that Carmen Carrera identifies with: “Your gender should not matter in your heart or in the way you express your personality. We shouldn’t be afraid to stick to a model, because there are so many types of diverse people on this planet. My message is: beauty has no gender. At the end of the day beauty is beauty”, she says.

Beautiful!
