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. When I watch movies like Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman ‘Australia’ I see the hypocrisy in what the world sees as the ‘white Australia’ yet seeing these documentaries you see the arrogance and discrimination that is still going on.
