Do not EVER assume because someone has a different opinion than yours 
that their opinion is less worthy or lacks empathy or understanding, 
next you'll be trying to call me a fucking racist... fools like you 
making statements like that are part of the problem.

But lets the keep this divide, lets enshrine it so it remains forever so 
there will always be an 'us and them' attitude, which is what they do 
NOT want, if you actually knew any indigenous people (excluding 
activists/radicals) on more than a passing basis, you'd know that's all 
they want, this is 2015, not 1915.
