Black Gangs are coming for us

We haven't been out for dinner for ages. Minister for Immigration tells us that people like us are frightened of African youth gangs and so we don't go out for dinner. It is rather more that our chief organiser of dinners out has been in hospital since before Christmas. (Font problem, I know)

Firefighting Nephew and his now wife lived in the inner western suburb of Footscray for over one year, full of those Asian and black African people.They dined out often, locally and cheaply. Maybe they never mentioned it to me, but I don't think they were ever fearful of going out locally for dinner, among all these supposed black African gangs roaming the streets. I am not aware that they had any personal crime problems in Footscray.

I tolerate nonsense by politicians up to a point, but when Minister Peter Dutton says that people in Melbourne are fearful to go out for dinner because of African immigrant youth crime, well, what possible respect can I have for him.

There is no doubt that there is an Australian youth of African heritage problem, especially those from Sudan, but hysterical statements like we afraid to go out for dinner are not helpful.

Maybe too many from Sudan were allowed in without the adequate support in place? The worst thing about all this is that black kids are all lumped together in the public eye. See four of them together on the street? Look out, and I must say, I have the same feelings myself, and I should not. They are kids. They will get up to some malarkey like all kids do but they are not necessarily out to do bad to anyone. I really feel for those black kids who are being judged by what a few of their own do.

Writing about race, religion and immigration never wins me friends, but write about them I will at times.

Image from the Footscray City College way back in 2001. What a pussy cat. He probably has bred a large family by now and has to work hard to support them.

  1. I have less than no respect for Dutton. And it diminishes my already low respect for Turnbull that he doesn't rein him in. Dutton is being touted as a future Prime Minister which gives me the cold grues.

    I seriously doubt Dead Eye Dutton can tell the difference between a black African and an aboriginal person other than they are not white. Or from Norway, to quote the genius in he White House. After all, he was a Queensland copper and we all remember how abusive, racist and homophobic they were back in the day. - Ian

    1. Ian, was he indeed a copper. That explains a little. No Australian police force back then was great, but I think Queensland was the worst.

  3. A clever lass on FB shared the phone number to his electoral office and stated she had called to let Dickhead Dunderhead Dutton know she'd dined out and got home safely without any incidents - she encouraged more to do the same.
    So, we did.
    I think the chap who answered had a little chuckle when I said "Ohhh, Just calling to let you all know I've been out at night in Melbourne and not a dicky bird made any move towards me, safe as houses, pet".
    The blatant racism is revving up those damned right-wing neo-nazi fuck-knuckles, giving them carte blanche to say and do as they wish.

    1. Jayne: I love this. So much. And what a shame that it will always be a staffer rather than the dweeb himself answering the phone.

    2. Jayne, your last sentence is particularly important, as we saw with Hanson Mk I.

  5. I think I heard Dutton say that on the news a while ago - silly man.
    We only hear the bad things these blacks do, but there is good in everything and everyone.

    1. Margaret, of course there is good in almost all. Dutton was playing politics just too damned hard.

  6. There is a problem, (my son could tell you his story), just not as large as 'they' would have us believe.

    1. River, and I did carefully include that. It is problem that needs dealing with properly or the seeds will be sown for years of problems. Just today three really dark teens asked me on the street ever so politely about which way Melbourne Town Hall was.

  7. Parts of London (and Paris) really are no-go areas. Many of the young black population make themselves unemployable through dress, bizarre language, lack of education, etc. They join gangs, deal in drugs, and carry weapons. You really wouldn't want to go in their neighbourhoods at night. Sadly this is the truth of the matter; I hope Oz can hold back the tide.

    1. Cro, it is a huge social problem there, I know, and in other European countries. My view is that too many come from one country and are not encouraged to integrate. That is what is beginning to happen here now.

  8. Dutton is not my favourite either! I agree that there are good and bad people of all races, colours and religions, but the majority is good. Integration is the key as you say Andrew and not lump them all together in a suburb.
    I find a lot of Aboriginals are a bit hostile, use bad language, etc, but again I can't judge half a dozen for all of them.

    1. Sami, on your last point me too. However, I remember being in Adelaide River quite early in the morning and there was a menacing looking group of Aboriginal young men hanging around. Our coach driver explained. They will be picked up to go to their jobs soon. That is a job scheme abolished not too long after by PM John Howard.

    2. Silly of him to have done that!!

  9. We could turn this around, remember way back when all the good christians wanted gays locked up in case they got hold of their darling sons and turned them into homos? Took our attention away from the creepy priests who were doing just that so I'm wondering what they are hiding behind the smoke and mirrors. Probably cloning another Dutton in case this one shows a hint of intelligence and has to be renditioned.

    1. Meaning Jah Teh, that this is a distraction from what the government is up to? My failure as a gay man is to have never converted anyone to being gay, even straight guys after having sex with them.

  10. On my half yearly visits to Melbourne have always visited Footscray for dinners and lunches taking the MIL out. Yes there are a lot of Sudanese living there now - felt scared walking the streets there - never.
    Dutton is a Queenslander - say no more. A complete idiot and if the Libs think he is Prime Minister material they will be in opposition for a long long time.
    Instead of complaining the Federal Government should be funding schemes to find these kids jobs and give them activities to occupy their spare time.

    1. Good to hear you feel safe in Footscray, Allan. Yes, kids are far more likely to be in bed at night if they have to get up early for training or a job.

  11. I'm not a fan of Dutton either Andrew.. generalisations of any kind are never a good thing!

  13. That's just a shame, but we have this here too, but more with Moroccans not with black people. Put a gang of white youngsters together and they will be as awful as the black once. Color doesn't mind. I thought Australia would be more open but it doesn't look like.

  14. Gattina, we are no different and just as troubled.
