Racist messages cause anger in Australia a

Racist graffiti targeting Chinese students has prompted anger after it was found at two locations in an Australian university, BBC report.

The words “kill Chinese” were inscribed above a swastika in restrooms at the University of Sydney.

The university condemned the graffiti and said “any and all remnants” would be removed.

Last week, racist flyers directed at Chinese students were posted at two universities in Melbourne.

“The University of Sydney is committed to ensuring that our community is a safe, inclusive and supportive one,” it said in a statement.

“Any graffiti or posters placed around campus of a racist nature are immediately removed.”

A university spokesperson told SBS: “We do not know who is responsible, although the university’s security people suggest that it appears to be the work of a lone individual.”

Poppy Wang, vice-president of the university’s Chinese Students Association, said the graffiti had made her feel less secure.

“Most people I talk to feel sad because they come to this country to study, not to be treated like this,” she told the BBC.

“They really like this country and they do not really want to see this stuff happen.”

Ms Wang said she was disappointed the university had taken two days to remove the graffiti, which was found in the international students’ lounge and the business school.

“The university is not reacting fast enough,” she said.
