Today our class watched a movie called “Rabbit-Proof Fence” in the LLAC. It was about young Australian aborigines who are taken away to camps to teach them to become servants for being half-castes. Three young girls from a place called Jigalong get sent there and they go on a quest to get back home by walking 1,500 miles. I thought the white people were kind of stupid because they thought they were doing the aborigines a favor by taking them away from their family and eradicating their race, but I could easily see that they were happy just where they were. I think that this shows that the past shapes what our world is like today because some of the aborigine children died there, or never went back to their parents. If that happened in the U. S., it would be on the front page of every newspaper in the world, yet here it was happening for years. Everybody deserves to have access to equal opportunities and this movie shows that they didn’t have many opportunities. We are lucky to have a nice life without kidnappings and constant worrying.
