It’s that time of year again, when folks in the land down under get together with family and friends, light a few candles and feel sorry for the innocent monkey people who are exactly the same as us that they were mean to – and consequently, hurt the feelings of – when they came to build a civilization in Australia.
When you hurt someone’s feelings, it is necessary to say sorry. If that person’s skin is a color other than White, it is necessary to keep saying sorry forever. This literally means an infinite number of sorries, from generation to generation.
We will be lighting candles for I’m Sorry Day on the moonbase.
National Sorry Day is an annual event that has been held in Australia on 26 May, since 1997, to remember and commemorate the mistreatment of the continent’s indigenous population. During the 20th century, the Australian government’s policies resulted in a “Stolen Generation”—i.e., “Aboriginal children separated, often forcibly, from their families in the interest of turning them into white Australians”.
The date 26 May carries great significance for the Stolen Generations, as well as for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and non-indigenous Australians. On 26 May 1997, the “Bringing Them Home” report was tabled in Parliament.
The annual National Sorry Day commemorations remind and raise awareness among politicians, policy makers, and the wider public about the significance of the forcible removal policies and their impact on the children that were taken, but also on their families and communities.
Can you believe that White people kidnapped Abo kids and tried to forcibly transform them into White people, mad scientist style?
We must never forget this day, as we must forever feel sorry for trying to help Abos become human beings.
If you are celebrating your Sorry Day by visiting Abos and apologizing to them personally, please remind them again not to sleep in the road. I don’t think they’re watching these PSAs.
Soon, we will be sorry enough to the Abos that they will finally be able to join us as equals, begin teaching game theory and particle physics at universities and working as technicians on the International Space Station.
But first, let’s get road safety right.
