RANT: Two documentaries on the hardships of the Australian Aboriginals

After watching two documentaries on the struggles of the Aboriginals of Australia I realize how upset I get over the struggles indigenous cultures have had throughout the ages. ‘Our Generation’ and ‘Utopia’ show the struggles Aborigines have and still have against the modern ‘civilised’ world in Australia.
