Northern Irish orphans sent to Australia were painted black

so that they'd fit in, because the abbos were black

the poor little kids (as they were at the time) were abused in a catholic-run orphanage in ulster, sent to australia without their consent, and then abused in the care home they were sent to in australia
this happened to the children in this report in the 1950s, and the ones that are still alive are now in their 70s, and the bastards that did it to them are long dead.


not a post on self-identifying, but a follow-up on the british kids who were shipped without their consent to the dominions where they were given to pedophiles who raped them and used them for slave labor
it happened to scottish kids as well as the ulster kids discussed earlier
Judge in charge of Scottish child abuse inquiry calls for New Zealand victims to come forward
Thousands of children were sent to Australia, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand between the 1920s and 1970s.
Professor Lynn Abrams of Glasgow University says 2000 children were sent here in 1946, and 1000 in the following year.

In 2010 child migrants received an apology from the then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
He said: "Today your pain is recognised, your suffering is understood your betrayal is acknowledged by the apology I make on behalf of our country."

I had to google that to find out who he was

But a related point: if the early britons were darkies, does that mean that today's brits can identify themselves as people of color on affirmative action forms and so on?

I think I'm the missing link... Check out the photo in the attachment - I'm the one sitting behind the girl. Compare the skin tone (I haven't been to any sunny place for a year at the time the photo was taken, and I generally avoid sunbathing).

Did you have have any problems recognising that the person in the photo was a man?
