It took global sanctions and decades of tragedy to get these signs removed, but now they are returning clothed in the shining glory of political correctness.

You really want to go there, mate? Whew. It is not even in the same ballpark, let alone universe. Maybe pull your head in and discuss this sort of thing like an adult without resorting to hysteria and playing the victim.

Oh yes, Avatar, because the only true oppression is white people not being allowed to do whatever they want with someone else's land, or being held to account for centuries of theft, displacement, murder and discrimination. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

That's not a fair comment, NNW, when Avatar was giving an example of oppression of non-whites by white people. You may wish to withdraw it.

Given the context of the discussion, I think the meaning is quite clear and thus my reply is apposite. I have no wish whatsoever to withdraw my words. If I am mistaken in my interpretation, I trust Avatar themself will inform me and we can go from there.

This issue could have been handled better by Govt and NPWS but it's happened, so let's just stop with the right v woke and discuss the issue properly.
