Just gonna leave this here for anyone who believes that Australia is not a racist country.
We’ve only recognised Indigenous Australians as fully human for less than 50 years. It takes a lot longer than that to gain full equality and justice for survivors of colonialism and systematic oppression.
This also happened in the USA and in many countries with indigenous folks. Typically with unrecognized tribes or bands of indigenous folks, the local EPA actually has jurisdiction.
When I talk about Indigenous peoples being dehumanized this is what I mean.
