Australia Worries About Racial Tension After Six Men Gang-Rape Girl, 14

Posted on | February 10, 2014 | 17 Comments

The failures of multiculturalism are a global problem:

Community leaders have warned of possible reprisal attacks by Blacktown’s Pacific Islander community targeting young African-Australian men in the wake of the gang-rape attack on a 14-year-old Islander girl. . . .
Blacktown Uniting Church Reverend Liva Tukutama said it was vital he and other Pacific Islander leaders reached out to African leaders to stop the young men of their communities seeking vengeance.
Meanwhile the victim’s mother says her daughter has been “broken into pieces” after what police described as a “horrendous” sexual assault by up to six men.
With tears welling in her eyes, the mother of the girl said she . . . wanted to kill the attackers who had left her daughter traumatised beyond words.
“I’m feeling angry and disgusted at what’s happened to my daughter and I want to catch those mongrels and kill them,” the girl’s mother said. . . .
[The victim] was reportedly “hanging out” with two friends in Bill Colbourne Reserve, Doonside around 11pm on Saturday night when the trio noticed “five or six” African-Australian men drinking alcohol. . . .
At 11pm that night the teenage girl became the victim of a prolonged gang rape described by Superintendent Gary Merryweather as “horrendous” and “unprovoked”. . . .
The girl’s friend said the men were known drug dealers and that that the third friend in the group had intended to make a purchase. . . .
[Reverend Tukutama] said he could not dismiss “the possibility of negative repercussions” in the community. “It would be like adding fuel to already tense relations between the young Islanders and the Africans,’’ he said.
Mr Tukutama said in times of crisis the church was the first port of call for Pacific Islander families and he was doing everything he could to reach out to the girl’s family to offer support.
Thursday night in Blacktown was “fight night” with as many as 2000 youths congregating in the [central business district], former Blacktown police commander Mark Wright said in 2012, and many gangs were divided along African and Pacific Islander lines. . . .
[L]ocals said they were so used to hearing screams from the littered, dimly lit park where Saturday night’s shocking gang rape took place, they wouldn’t know if an attack was actually taking place.
Resident Elaine Peteolo gave the shocking assessment of Bill Colbourne Park, where graffiti adorns run-down pathways amid smashed beer bottles and drug paraphernalia.
“It’s shocking, we’re so used to hearing screams from the park you wouldn’t know it was an attack,” Mrs Peteolo said.
“There’s always people in there screaming in the middle of the night, we’re so used to hearing screams from the park … I thought gosh, maybe we moved to the wrong area.”
Many of her neighbours said the park was “notorious” for violence.

This is terrible for Australia, but probably even worse for MSNBC, because they can’t find a way to blame it on Republicans.

    If they knew, they would blame Mr. Abbott and the Coaltion he leads.

    They pissed off Pacific Islanders?

    This could be a self-correcting problem, if left alone…

    Not understanding race terms Down Under, I must ask: is African in this instance like the term ‘Black’ in Britain where it can be Black as in America or Black as in North African non-black skinned Muslim?

  • DaveO

    When did MSNBC ever pay attention to blacks? I mean, beyond patting them on the head and then ignoring them.

  • jakee308

    Most blacks in Australia are Indigenous and not from Africa. (and in fact are a branch of caucasian) So the sobriquet “African-Australian” is misused and rather ridiculous.

    This is true. We don’t go into that hyphen crap down here. Sydney has a growing Somali population (no good deed goes unpunished), but they are quite different from our aboriginals.

    Also, don’t think I don’t see what is happening here. You just had to make Australia look bad after your previous post. :P

    Man! I used to work on an airport ramp and there were 3 types of employees: white, black and islanders. One day, the blacks pissed off the islanders, the white boys jumped back out of the way, and it was UGLY!

    Abbott’s a classic old school conservative and possibly the strongest conservative leader this world currently has. Unfortunately, the insidious wiles of the left have so infiltrated the West that even he will be hamstrung to achieve major reforms.

    The world as a whole needs a significant conservative revolution.

    Maybe all the faces on air are white, but that’s not what NBC is all about. Blacks are an important part of the NBC family from the cleaning crew to the cafeteria staff to the groundskeeping team. And when Rachel Maddow staggers in from a night of drunken debauchery and pukes all over the set, it’s a black guy with a mop who makes sure the good progressive audience never sees a bit.

    “This is terrible for Australia, but probably even worse for MSNBC, because they can’t find a way to blame it on Republicans.”

    Don’t sell msnbc short on the depths they can reach in order to accomplish their main objective – supporting progressive agendas.
    It would not surprise me in the least to hear the reverend al sharpton …
    ” This minor occurence in Australia could easily have been avoided if those young african-Australian men could have immigrated to this country instead.
    But the remnants of slavery, Jim Crowe laws and George Bush’s presidency are the direct cause of occurrences like this because innocent young african men are afraid to come to this country.”

    No problem see. :-

    That’s not fair.
    They currently employ several black people as hosts and contributors and will continue to do so until January 20, 2017.
    Then they will ignore them again.

    African as in refugee immigrants from Africa,
    probably Somali in this case. Based on the suggested ages they probably started
    off in camps before immigrating. Unfortunately their education, language, and
    job skills are lacking hence they go straight on to CentreLink (welfare) with
    nothing to keep them occupied.

    The Islanders have over two hundred (not always happy) contact with Eastern Australia and are immigrants rather than
    refugees. They are Christians in tight family groups. While most of them are
    employed much of their work is in jobs requiring physical strength rather than
    desk jobs. In recent years outlaw/criminal bikie gangs have been recruiting
    them even though they don’t ride bikes.
