North India, Pakistan and China killed more than 55000 native Tamils in Sri lanka.

This is God's will to bring curse on all North Indian students all over the world. No protection is necessary. No one can go against GOD.

White Australians are rarely involved in these attacks. Look up the locales of the attacks, they are mostly in the Muslim ghettos of Sydney and Melbourne. Most white Aussies are too buggered to waste their time bashing Indians.

Lebanese Muslims got white skin and their girls are the most beautiful.

'White wanting' North Indian coolies went to suk those men, so they poke them with screws.

Those Evil North Indian are being punished by the God Vishnu and God Allah. That is all.

I got excited as I thought for a moment we were going to send them home to protect them. The government is just sucking up as they don't want to lose their pathetic education industry. They willing to stuff the country via social instability so they can rake in some money from low rent Indians.

They're also too busy protecting themselves against ethnic attacks on them.

I wonder if we should hold a few protests too and lobby for better protection against ethnic groups. Would that change things do you think? Nah...we're not the "guests", we're just the convict scum who live here...we don't matter!

So??? Everything is not about the money to ordinary Aussies you know - it's only the gov who care about that, not us! We'd much rather have our peaceful country back again.

Oh so true. That money mainly goes to universities and private colleges owned by Indians. The average people see nothing of it, only overcrowded suburbs. We want our own kids to get into uni, not be left out by paying foreigners.

Just what's been on my mind the last few days, since I read your posts. You wrote that as a result of these incidents and the hype most other people will probably tread very carefully when they're around Indians, just to avoid trouble. This is an uncomfortable truth but very likely.

I don't know if you were just being sarcastic (you most probably were) in the above post, but if as a response to the Indians' protests, other people also start to do the same, it will only isolate communities further.

The way I see it (thanks largely to your responses), this is a crime problem and not a racial problem. No one can clearly say which race perpetrated it and which race responded, there are no such clear black and white areas, and it's likely to get even more confusing and mixed up.

So if it's all about crime, and like you've said so well, about your peaceful city life being taken away from you, why don't you all protest, not as whites, or Indians, or Lebanese, or anyone else, but all together as Aussies and as citizens of your own cities? So instead of the mantra being "xxx are racist, and send them back home" or "xyz is a racist country", it could (and should) be something like "make our cities safe again!"

That way everyone wins if it succeeds, manages to make some noise, and the policing, the laws and the sentencing (what we've been talking about) are made uniformly stricter and tighter. It's a win-win.

I'm saying this as someone who believes in public protests as an effective means to change things. I've seen them work in India, in the US and in Europe. Things never change overnight, but they often do change. And yes, you guys, ALL YOU GUYS, deserve a safer Australia.

We do want safer streets. Apparently there is a show about street violence on 60 minutes tomorrow night which should highlight the problem.

Sorry, yes I was being sarcastic. You Kimchi, are a person I would like to have a face to face conversation with. I hate all this typing but so much is missed in just a few words and misunderstandings occur from the lack of them(sometimes because of them too).

I've seen the "avoidance" thing happen in my town. Because of a few incidents involving Aborigines and Islanders, and because of the sanctions put on 'whites' etc, nobody was game to even stick up for themselves or look sideways at them, that includes other ethnics as well. If a crime was reported, the first question was "Are they coloured?" If you said yes, the police would take their time turning up, or didn't turn up at all, as they were frightened of the repercussion from whatever treatment they gave. True story. Consequently they eventually got out of control (even very young dark kids running the streets late at night causing all sorts of trouble) and very hard measures then had to be implemented to counter-act what became a major problem. Elders of the two races were given authority and were more feared than the police ever were. Thankfully we don't have any major dramas involving "race" in my town anymore (it's a city now) for now anyway.

""The way I see it (thanks largely to your responses), this is a crime problem and not a racial problem.""

It would be a mixture of both but when the "race card" is played, the media run with it (especially over-seas media) and because of the reaction it gets, racism is used as an effective leverage.

I had an interesting talk today with an Italian man I've know for years, as I asked him if he remembered what it was like when he first came here 40 years ago. He laughed and said "Too ****** right, it was hell for a while but we learned real quick you didn't go to another country and expect "who" you are to matter... Aussies only accept "what" you are and we have to respect their country or forget it". By "what you are", he meant a good or bad person. He went on to say how much he appreciated this country and was proud that he lived here and never wanted to go home. It was great to actually hear that in light of what's going on now. I won't tell you what he said about the Indian students as that would probably offend, but he wasn't meaning to be offensive, just very matter of fact.

I haven't got any answers and as there's unrest all over this crazy world I wonder what the culmination is going to be. Even the Indian head here is exasperated at what's going on as the students are now complaining about the Lebanese. We should remember we all are only a tiny speck in the universe and we all only have one life to live here.

Brilliant suggestion and if this sort of thing continues, also a probability of that happening. It really does take a lot for Aussies to get so riled up about something before action is taken, but we've all had just about enough of the rubbishing to kick start a protest ourselves like this country's never seen before.:)))

The political climate has deteriorated here and we've had enough of that garbage too...so I reckon we'll be in the news for a while yet, could be some interesting headlines to come. The students might have done us a favour in a backhanded way.

Listen you Tamil street cleaner. The bulk of these students have been attacked in Melbourne in the poorer suburbs of Weribee, St Albans and Springvale. A lot othe attackers are white, some are Vietnamese and Lebonese. They are jealous because many Indians are successful and they are not. Simple.

Yes, I'd love to meet you and have a one-on-one as well. Maybe someday I'll take up your recommendation to come see Darwin :) I've been to NSW and parts of South Australia, but never up north.
If you ever think of coming to Asia, please do include India on your itinerary. I'd love to show you around.
Yes, even I'm no fan of typing, not even too fond of the phone. But it's better than not being able to communicate at all I'm thinking of the pre-internet days).
I'll write more later.
Good day!

You seriously do not know what you are talking about.
Some Indians students lack manners and don't respect their host country and its people, so they attract trouble.

Friends,
Please beware of hate mongers
Beware of Pakis and Paki sympathizers on Topix posing as Aussies and Indians Chinese Canadians etc etc, posting hate and pitting us against each other. Don't be fooled by the location, be it Auckland or Berlin or Vizag India or Guangzhou, China Don't let them get to you. Do not fall into their evil trap.
We are all friends and we will all help each other and progress together ( China, Indonesia, Australia, India, USA, Japan, Canada, Europe, Malaysia,....)
And there is nothing they can do about it.
Thanks and take care
:)

PS: Once the Indian media reported that many of the attackers were not whites, but lebs, asians, people here are no longer as disturbed (shocked) about all this and have moved on since (from Topix too). So now it only the paki trolls you have to deal with now (mostly). Do not respond to them. They will be responding to each other pretending to be from the other side. Please report them, as they intend harm to both India and Australia.
Again beware and take care.
