I really don't see the difference between the non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal stolen generations.
My non-Aboriginal family were stolen as people at that time did not approve of unmarried mothers and children living in poverty. They thought they were doing it for the children's welfare just like they thought the Aboriginals would be better placed in other homes for their welfare. Hundreds if not thousands of the aboriginals stolen were being abused in their family of origin just like the non-aboriginals. Just like today, but nowdays the government is too scared to remove them even though it is for their own safety.
Having said that thankfully none of my aboriginal family were 'stolen'.
Thanks to those who have contributed, but this thread is causing too many noses to be put out of joint. It's closed.
