Yep, mick, Sudanese Australians have been in the news. ..
“I have been concerned that some groups don’t seem to be settling and adjusting into the Australian way of life as quickly as we would hope and therefore it makes sense to put the extra money in to provide extra resources, but also to slow down the rate of intake from countries such as Sudan.” — Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews, speaking on the death of Liep Gony A Sudanese man, Hakeem Hakeem, out of his mind on drugs and inhaled paint fumes, bashed and raped a 63-year-old woman and terrorised a 16-year-old couple. Local police told of regularly stopping Sudanese drink-drivers who refused to take Australian law seriously because it treated them with decency rather than the brutality they expected. Now, it is worse. Last week, a young Sudanese man, Liep Gony, was bashed to death in Noble Park and police fear reprisals. — Herald SunTwo men from Noble Park have been arrested in Adelaide and charged with the murder of Liep Gony, the Sudanese teenager bashed near that suburb’s train station last week and left for dead. — The Age Two men, aged 19 and 21, have been charged with Mr Gony’s murder after the teenager was found bashed and unconscious on a median strip in Noble Park in Melbourne’s southeast last month. He later died in hospital. — Herald Sun
And on it goes.
A strange omission in coverage that is otherwise so ethnographically precise, is that nowhere in the telling of the sad death of Liep Gony and the alleged gang violence that caused it, is it mentioned that the two men accused of the murder are white. I think there’s probably a fair case to be made for the death of the Sudanese lad being a direct result of our Immigration Minister (and the media lackeys) stirring up race hate.
I dunno what’s up with the strike through text – we can just pretend those bits have been censored.
This government did it in pre-election 2002. They are doing it again pre-election 2007.. Dog whistle politics they call it.
We have lots of Sudanese refugees livivg in our small country town,They are lovely people .They are a great asset to the community ,all working ,all the kids are in school.They are friendly people and just seem really happy to be here.For Kevin Andrews to turn around and say they are not intergrating is a crock.It’s just so Howard get’s his ‘children over board’for this election.
So true peta. Kevin Andrews has opened the door to the crazies to condemn race. Families will now be kept separated as these bans take place.
