Course Karl is upset about the Cricket. The guy’s big “expose” on Meghan Markle was an interview with Katie Hopkins, the UKs BIGGEST racist. #AustraliaDay I stand with #CricketAustralia and their decision to wear #IndigenousAustralia Jerseys. That IS Australian.
And if you think Sports has never been political…Are you in for a shock. Course Sports is political.

Why so many White Australians have a problem with moving a public holiday to another day, that doesn’t represent colonization. It’s just weird to me, why this is such a big deal. Why is it SUCH hard work to change a day, that doesn’t represent us NOW, to another day that would represent us NOW.
Any “Australian” that wants to kills off Koala’s to make money. Doesn’t have a single leg to stand on when talking about “What’s Australian” #KoalaKiller *cough* John Barilaro MP *cough*
If we, Australians, see these hypocritical comments for stupid elite leaders, and can’t see WHY we need to change the date from these comments alone. I don’t know what else to tell you.
By the way, I just found out that the “Australians of the Year” nominee’s were a majority, are of the Christian Faith -.- However, I am happy with who won “Australian of the Year”.

National Reconciliation Week started as the Week of Prayer for Reconciliation in 1993 Under the guidance of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation (now Reconciliation
Australia), it evolved into the week-long celebration.
Every year, it is held between two significant milestones in Australia’s history, May 27 and June 3. May 27 is the anniversary of the 1967 referendum. More than 90 per cent of Australians voted ‘Yes’ to count Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the census and give the Australian Government the power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The day before 26th of May, is National Sorry Day, which was first held in Sydney in 1998 and is now commemorated nationally to remember and honour the Stolen Generations.
We spend this week learning about Australia’s Indigenous people and the impact that us, the settlers have had on the people. We look at the past, but also the future as well. How we can make things better. How including the Indigenous people can actually help towards the Australian society.
The theme for this National Reconciliation Week is – Don’t make History a Mystery. My plan for this week is to then, do some research and then share it with you. I’m not sure what I am going to look into…So watch this space for more! We will all learn a little something.
Where I work we are to make a pledge of how we are going to help History becoming a Mystery.
May the 26th is a poignant here in Australia it is “National Sorry Day”. This day is significant because it symbolises the Day where the Australian Parliament publicly apologised to the Indigenous people of Australia (the Aboriginal people).
It’s a time to reflect on what the Settlers did to the Indigenous people of this land, not only what we did to their land when we came over to “settle” Also the “certain situations” that have happened over the years. (I’m at Work right now, but on Friday I should be able to write more about this). National Sorry Day is also a part of Australia’s Reconciliation Week.
