Broaden your horizons, get off the porn sites and chat rooms and have a look around on the net.
Yes, you're right. I must look into this Internet I have heard so much about. I'm a bit of a duffer when it comes to technology

Thank heavens the Poms did 'steal' their land.
There's no denying that the british brought about development, great services, democracy, technology etc..... But there's also no denying that in taking their land the aboriginal people were denied of so many opportunities hence making them 'less intelligent' in the eyes of potato_potato

I like the guy potatoe, what better than to have someone to point and laugh at on a slow day, he's very amusing.

Although I must admit I found his comments to me very hurtful, no really

Actually the average aborigine would be alot smarter these days as they have had their minds opened to a different & better way of thinking.

Of course they're probably unhappier though - white mans world is about pushing oneself to achieve. This way of living doesn't sit well with some people.

If you're referring to the Bell Curve, whites don't actually have the highest IQ among the various races, assuming of course IQ is a measure of intelligence.

The seems a balanced article and presents both sides of the argument.

This 'better way of thinking' is obviously based on your standards which we've already seen is based on some dodgy sources . As for the 'pushing oneself bit' i suggest you go and educate yourself about other cultures and you'll soon realise that:
1. There are other cultures out there that continuously strive to achieve... and...
2. How ignorant of other cultures and customs you're making yourself look
