Sydney: just don’t mention “African gangs”

“The white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the negro’s friend and benefactor”–Malcolm X

Putting a savage in a suit doesn’t make him a civilised man.

Sydney’s South Sudanese community ( I thought that we were all Australians ) are as much in denial about African gangs as their counterparts in Melbourne. Australians are increasingly furious about this continuing scourge in our society. South Sudanese youth worker John Garang Kon said … “Sydney may see the same issues that Melbourne has experienced if politicians talk to the media … and call them “African gangs” …(that actually sounds like a threat.)

Sydney’s South Sudanese community is FURIOUS at police for claiming ‘African gangs’ are on the rise in the city after a spate of brazen robberies

  • Members of Sydney’s South Sudanese community are disappointed in the police
  • NSW Police identified ‘African gangs’ as those responsible for Sydney robberies 
  • At least 20 stores across Sydney have been hit by teenagers stealing electronics
  • Sudanese youth worker John Garang Kon said there is nothing to do with gangs
  • Mr Garang Kon said calling youths ‘African gangs’ doesn’t sit well in community

Members of Sydney’s South Sudanese community have expressed their fury at police for claiming ‘African gangs’ are on the rise in the city.

New South Wales Police last week said ‘African gangs’ are responsible for a terrifying spate of robberies.

But youth worker John Garang Kon, who has helped young South Sudanese in the western Sydney suburb of Blacktown, said the robberies have nothing to do with gangs.

Mr Garang Kon said calling the group of youths ‘African gangs’ doesn’t sit well within the community.

He said he doesn’t believe Sydney will experience the same issues with African gang crime as Melbourne, and that the recent incidents have nothing to do with the ethnicity of the alleged offenders.

These clowns say anything. It’s meaningless. Only action matters.

‘Calling them an “African Gang” does not sit well with the community because it is not the first time in Australia to see robberies happening,’ Mr Garang Kon told Daily Mail Australia.

He said calling the young people an African gang is ‘really unfortunate’, as it relates the crime to the entire community.

‘It’s just a group of young people who went and did the crimes, and the law can deal with it,’ he said.

Asked whether he believes Sydney will see the same issue as Melbourne, Mr Garang Kon said it would only happen if ‘politicians talk to the media and call them “African Gangs”.’

One thought on “Sydney: just don’t mention “African gangs””

  1. Well, ‘Kon’, what are they exactly? How can we describe them to the police if we want to assist in their capture so that they don’t cause further harm to the society which tolerated their arrival and has generously supported them?

    Eskimo gangs, islander gangs, Caucasian gangs, Brit gangs, Leb gangs?

    No – they don’t look like any of those really, do they?. They look distinctly like gangs of AFRICANS.
