Gladys Kravitz strikes again.
In Melbourne there is a loose association of teens born of very black immigrants from Africa, from awful war torn places such as Ethiopia and Somalia. But the children of the immigrants have not known the terrors of living in such places. They have grown up in the 'comfort' of western society. As has happened in the past with immigration, the children of immigrants have become a problem. What is different now is that these youth are attacking middle class white people, with car hijackings, robbery and assault, home invasions with violence and theft of very expensive cars. They are known as the Apex Gang, although essentially it is an online form of a gang. Thanks internet. The white middle class in the leafy suburbs are living in terror of an attack, especially as the gang has a predilection for stealing by force Audi and BMW cars. (Umm, can anyone see a problem here? While some people in Australia can't afford a 1979 Datsun Bluebird, our streets are littered with black Audis, BMWs and Mercedes SUVs)
My opinion is that we brought in too many from these African countries in a short period with insufficient support. It was bound to go wrong, but capitalist governments do like cheap labour and to break down working conditions with a high rate of immigration.
R said I really need to get a life, but early this morning when monitoring the world from my windows, I observed some black African youth in a car opposite The Highrise. Oh, black African youth. On this side of town. Must be trouble. I ran for my camera. I will be able to sell my crime photos for a fortune!
The driver remained in the car and two were outside the car. One had a take away drink container and was scooping water from the gutter and throwing it at the side of the car, roughly where the fuel tank flap would be or perhaps the rear wheel. What were they washing off? Blood? Gunpowder? A dying person's fingernail marks? Lipstick where they had slammed one of their bitches up against the side of the car? Should I cross the road once they leave and with cotton buds get some samples of what was washed away? With a hoot, the one with the drink container threw it up in the air, and then with his accomplice jumped in the car and they drove off normally up Toorak Road.
Unfortunately I was actually too slow getting the camera as I was quite fascinated to watch what they were up to. These black criminals should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, for littering and illegal parking.
Ok, you haven't taken that too seriously, as I meant you not to, but I have had a couple of really bad experiences with black African youth, which I have never had with Aboriginal Australians, Anglo Saxon Australians, Middle Eastern, European, South American or South Asian Indians, South East Asian or Chinese immigrants. It saddens me to think like this, as I am sure there are plenty of decent children of African immigrants in our midst. So when I, a working class person living a middle class lifestyle, a person who tries to be tolerant of differences and generally succeeds, is fearful and feels threatened, governments better take notice.
