Let’s leave this here.

As these “facts” come out, it doesn’t even matter any more. People don’t care about the truth. They see Black people as thugs deserving of death, nothing will change their mind.
If this even goes to trial, the jury will look just like Trayvon Martin’s (jury of peers my ass).
How can you even have discussions with people who don’t care about facts. These same people profess have morals and their bankrupt.
Darren Wilson could literally say he’s guilty and people would still not believe him and think he had every right to kill Mike Brown.

Slavery in Australia

Starting from the 19th century Kanakas ( a now derogatory term for South Sea Islanders) were brought to Australia to work on sugar plantations. The majority were kidnapped or brought to Australia under false pretenses. Upon arrival they were subject to back breaking labour. Mortality rates reached as high as 10%, many dying from inadequate clothing in winter as well as diseases like dysentery and typhoid. Some were brutally attacked and murdered by white labourers who saw the slaves as threats to their own wages and working conditions. In addition there were widespread  accounts of slave owners branding the labourers like cattle.

After federation many were repatriated as a result of the White Australia policy though some remained, either remaining illegally or given exemptions. It is estimated some 20,000 of their descendants now live in Australia, many populating coastal towns of QLD and NSW. (X)(X)(X)
