I don’t know what to make of this possibly very racist article in The Age:
Crime is back in the spotlight in the Victorian election after a gang of youths engaged in “vicious, unprovoked, ugly” assaults outside St Kilda’s popular Donovans restaurant without a single arrest being made.
As many as 15 youths of African appearance were roaming St Kilda’s foreshore on Thursday night before setting upon a young chef and another innocent man.
It was already explained – by ♫♫ People of Colour ♫♫ – that these are not gangs, just groups of people:
[Richard Deng] said it was limited to a “tiny number” of kids of African descent and he did not like to use the word “gangs”.
“To be honest with you there are no gangs in Victoria,” he said.
“There are just a group of young kids who are going together in a group and they are terrorising people because they are going in a group.”
So very disappointing to see The Age whitesplaining like this.
