I'm not sure what you mean here? Do you mean it wasn't fair for her ancestors, and that because she has inherited partial genes that are aboriginal and therefore has inherited the collective damage done to her people from the past, or do you mean that being given benefits like a red carpet to university without having had to earn it like the other students isn't fair because it will inevitably set her up to think that because she is aborigine she deserves to be given perks that white people don't get?
I think setting a whole tribe of people up to think like that actually will harm them in the long run, because it spoils them into thinking they can get away with pulling a guilt trip any time they don't get what they want.
I'm not saying that it's fair what happened to their people...obviously it was heinous, but I wonder if 'solving' the issues by buying them is really going to make up for it? Nothing can make up for what happened to them.
