Do they treat aborigines like garbage in that movie?

I thought the aborigine was the one who created the nuclear reactor that paul hogan had to deactivate with his boomerang

I've said before that the health gap between aboriginal and non-aboriginal Australians is a national disgrace. My business is (and has for the past 20 years been) fully involved with working with Aboriginal Australians and specifically Aboriginal businesses within the remote NW of Australia, so yeah, I agree with you, and I have some first hand knowledge here from real life on the subject matter.

But by your logic then any country that has any social issues at all is automatically disallowed to criticise any other country for...anything? Kind of defeats the purpose of "News and Debate" don't you think? Or is it just that you'd prefer this sub was kept just to the Americans and us crew from "Nowheresville" kept our grubby posts out?

It must be pretty overwhelming caring about what every other country is doing.

then how about you take your grubby queen worshiping paws and go hammer some keyboard combinations that address protesting your own dirty drunk trump salad tossing PM or separating aborigine children from their parents or participating in the iraq war or whatever else the next right wing dogshit initiative du jour your communist-chinese-money-dependent country will tag along with rather than obsessively disparaging a caricature of a thing that exists on the other side of the planet meanwhile your dump of a hypocritical colonial leftover country does the exact same shit

America has been at the forefront of popular media and technology and all sorts of industry and change for my entire life. Why wouldn't I be interested in what goes on there?

Oh wait! That's right - interest in foreign affairs is almost totally absurd to you guys, right? It's OK verb, I get it that you couldn't possibly understand my interest.

for someone with such an apparently amazing intellect and endless compassion for the plight of others, you sure do seem to love negatively stereotyping all Americans in a way that is convenient for you

some might say that's what an ignorant American does!

but that's not you

because you are enlightened

unlike Americans

who all think and do the same things - that you know all about! you keep them all in a nice convenient box, to prop up your sense of superiority

or maybe you should just stick to bashing Trump and stopping there; rather than always segueing into bashing Americans based on cliche stereotypes

You're the fuckwit that told stickman he was from "Nowheresville".

I admit I was having a go at verb above with the "American's don't do foreign affairs" bit above, but perhaps you should re-read your post reply to me in the quotes above. Kinda pot kettle black, no?
