Black arm band view of History

Our BLACK history  – Early 20th Century.

Australian apologists for our European occupation of Australia often refer to historians who point out the negatives as ‘Black Arm Band’ historians.  This is an insult to intelligent people who just wish to alert newer generations to another side of European history, rather than having it ‘white-washed’ (pun intended). If a picture speaks a thousand words, then have a look at what was happening to Aborigines in Western Australia in 1902.  This shackling of indigenous Australians was happening in the 1920’s as well.  Aborigines were allowed to fight in our wars but were not allowed to vote until 1967.
