Chinese Students In Australia Harassed

Australia currently has a student export industry that brings in over fifteen billion dollars a year, but it being threatened by racists in their nation who believe they have to attack Chinese students attending local universities. There are over 130,000 Chinese students now at Australian universities, but their government is concerned over recent attacks by racist groups. Parents of students from India have also expressed their concern and are making known to authorities they will withdraw their children from Australia unless steps are taken to end the persecution of foreign students.

Ironically, as Australia experiences a severe economic turndown, local racists are attacking the source of income for their nation. This is an example of how racism can backfire and hurt those who are hurting other humans.
