New stolen generation?

26-02-2015 More than 900 Aboriginal children are in out-of-home care, according to the Guardian. The main, contradicting views, regarding this topics are the government’s vision that they simply look after children that live in abusive situation, while Aboriginal activists consider it a new ‘Stolen Generation’ policy. The likelihood that Aboriginal children end up in out-of-home care are eightfold from other children, according to a report on Child Protection 2012/13.
Comment from Wake Up Time: No proof can be found that the government removes Aboriginal children because of different standards or criteria than other children. The fact that relatively many Aboriginal children end up in foster care is probably mainly the result of the living conditions in which many Indigenous children grow up, as shown in Wake Up Time.
