Aboriginals should have their land back
ytherrien95

Con

Aboriginals shouldn't get their land back. Not only are they composed of such a miniscule population, that the act would be pointless, but I, as well as any North American whose ancestors have immigrated here in the last 500 years, have as much of a claim to the land that they do. I was born here, raised here and will most likely die here. So did my parents, so did my grandparents, and so did their grandparents. We are as much native as the American Aboriginal claim they are. They can have their culture, they can have their reserves, they can have funds from the government and tax exemptions too if they so feel entitled to have these previleges. They do not, however, have any more of a right to the lands than we do.
