I have been a victim of racism before, but it was not extreme like a majority of the cases happening now. In either case one thing is constant: ; white is the “superior race,” even though we are all the same. The quote that Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Judge me not by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character,” is still not true.

Introduction Aboriginal Australian peoples have been placed in unfair situations that have resulted in disconnections from society due to bias in culture, racism and because of previous historical events such as colonisation that led to colonialism and horrible events such as The Stolen Generation. These events act like a scar to the Aboriginal Australian peoples and their culture, those previously mentioned historical events symbolises the cut, the immense pain that was caused in that moment is still a factor and the pain from it is still prevalent and is symbolised by the scar. The scar also represents the factors that still manage to affect the Aboriginal Australians today, such as racism and lack of quality and access to education, money and health care..

And even now our society feels the repercussions of the old fashioned concept, having slavery for a shameful amount of time and still feeling the ripples of segregation from the mid-to-late 1960s. Race is not only useless and based in fake facts, but also has been nothing but a crutch on the people who it affects, which is most
