I’m playing Dangan Ronpa 2 and enjoying it, but I feel like I can’t marathon through because the whole aesthetic of the game is so garish that I can’t take it for long stretches. I like it, and it works for the overall feel of the game, it’s just kind of loud and obnoxious.
white australians have this thing where they seem to think that the dehumanization of aboriginal people was a hundred or so years ago like no up until 1967, aboriginal people were legally classed as fauna they weren’t considered people at all 47 yrs ago that’s not long ago at all
fun fact you used to be able to hunt them :T
that’s real fucked up
The fauna thing is a myth, but up until 1967 indigenous people weren’t counted in the census, which is where it comes from. They were just ignored - it’s actually kind of worse, less attention was paid to them than animals!
Several states did, indeed, often manage Aboriginal affairs through departments that also handled flora, fauna and wildlife.
But there is nothing to show Aboriginal people were ever classed as one and the same, despite the fact they were not being counted in the official human population.
Sol Bellear, now chairman of the Aboriginal Medical Service, says the animal counts in those years were actually far more accurate than the Aboriginal counts.
"In actual fact, back then, they knew how many sheep and cattle and dogs, et cetera, were in Australia (better than) they knew how many Aboriginal people existed here."
Mr Bellear says officials had a sense of the animal numbers because they fit into the important calculations of the time but the Aboriginal numbers did not.
But don’t worry! The fauna thing might be a misconception but it’s true that aboriginal people have been/still are treated horribly by white Australia. The stolen generation is basically still happening today, for example. Go Australia.
