#AfricanGangs: Australia's Africans respond to racism

The African community in Australia used the hashtag #AfricanGangs to show how educated and diverse Australia's African communities are.

    Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said people in Melbourne are afraid to go out to restaurants at night because of #AfricanGangs.

    This has put African communities in Australia on the receiving end of racist comments and bullying after media reports of gang violence.

    As a response, the African community used the hashtag #AfricanGangs to show how educated and diverse Australia’s African communities are.
