    Aboriginals have a tough go in Australia since the settlement of white people. The way they are treated is not always fair, and the way they were treated in the past was a disgrace to the white Australian. This history has shaped the way we see the aboriginals today. There are 3 images I think of when I think of aboriginals. I think of the aboriginal out in the bush, with hardly anything on, painted in his traditional markings, tracking a kangaroo. I also think of the city aboriginal, the ones ...

    When you think about children, chances are you think of them getting up in the morning, going to school then coming home and going outside to play. Sadly this isn't always the case. In other countries, children are locked up inside being forced to work. Is it fair that a child is forced to work a twelve-hour shift, seven days a week earning only seven cents an hour? This means if a child were to work eighty-four hours a week (when the maximum is 60 hours a week), then they will have only earned ...
