This is a picture of William Lanne. He is known for being the last full-blooded Tasmanian man to ever live. Tasmanians were a type of Negroes that resided within Australia for thousands of years. For the first half of the 1800's the population of the Tasmanian people decreased drastically due to a mass genocide where the whole race of people were terribly slaughtered by the British government. They were looking to overpower and completely take over their region. They looked at Tasmanian people as being nothing but devils and being inferior to them. The mistreatment and cruelty of the Tasmanians, including children, was unimaginable and unfathomable.
