Australian atrocities

Following on from the heated racial protests in the US, I noted this article published by the Guardian. It suggested that we may have a similar problem simmering in Australia; because of our statues and memorials of early explorers and pastoralists who inflicted horrors on the indigenous people.
I acknowledge these horrors, but the difference (to the US) is that Aussies today don't worship our early (white) settlers and explorers for their past deeds.
The reality is that most Australians don't have a good grasp of Australian history and the deeds, good and bad, of our early settlers.

The article by the Guardian is worth a read and some reflection.
I do like the idea of adding a second plaque on monuments to provide an Aboriginal perspective.
