Booze and Burnings
“You told us what to do and say. You told us all the white man’s ways. Then you split us up again. And gave us gifts to ease the pain. Sent us off to foster homes. As we grew up we felt alone. Cause we were acting white, yet feeling black”
Archie Roach, thank you for putting so truthfully and simple the main reasons for why Aborigines have fallen into the despair of a drunken and soulless white colonial culture. The feeling never disappears, the soul never dies.
