African Apex Gangs vs Aboriginals “Don’t Make This Country Bad Like Your Country’. 4Chan, January 10, 2018.
ONE of Australia’s most senior Aboriginal tribal leaders has delivered a sharp message to African gangs causing fear across Melbourne, telling them that their poor behaviour is an insult to the First Australians.
“I know you come from a place where bad things happen. But don’t make this country bad like your country.”
Mr Marika said he struggled to understand why the African youths were running amok, but said his people — including one of his own sons who is at Monash University — had strong connections to Melbourne through education and sport and felt concern. “I don’t understand why they do that,” he said. “Have they been hated or disliked? They are disrupting and spoiling things. Their spirituality is elsewhere. They need to reconnect with their spiritual world and meet people who understand mother earth and father sky.”
Mr Marika said he had African friends working at the local mine and said they were “friendly and smiley and they have a great life and work within society. But these (young) people think they can take anything, as if it’s theirs. No. That’s a bad way, to take other’s belongings. You got to show your respect. Live with the law that your father and mother have shown you. And show love to other Australians. And then we’ll show love to you and any other people living here.”
