If a brown person happens to say they were born in Australia, most people will find that unusual or respond in disbelief; ignorant to the truth about Australia' s history and the ongoing struggle of Aborigines. It's not surprising though. Social engineering seems commonplace anywhere there is a darker hue. Dilution and genocide are often used as solutions to erase, unfortunatel y .

The old house on the cover is at the end of my road. $15,000 has just been spent to keep it standing. Still very popular photo op for tourists. I often wonder if they understand the euro-settler vs natural environ symbolism intended by the photographer . Still, I hope the Oil's message gets through to some.....
