If It’s The Dalits In India, It’s The Aborigines In Australia

It is known that Aborigines suffered violence and dispossession in the past due to the colonial project. However, what is not widely known is that prejudice and discrimination against the original people of Australia is still deeply rooted throughout the country. The situation of Aborigines is much like the experience of Dalits in India. Even today, White people will pass the empty seat next to a dark-skinned Aborigine in a bus and sit elsewhere. Just like even today, some people will not eat food cooked by a Dalit.
