F- They killed the aboriginal people because they just wanted to get rid of them so there were only a few aboriginals left. C- They did not respect that the aboriginals were black instead of white.

G- Because we hurt a lot of their feelings. D- We need to respect them … they are us! So we need to respect them how they respect us.
