There are more racist attacks on Chinese students than on Indian students in Australia.

But the Chinese students are very shy and scared to speak and to report the racist attacks to the  ...

How do you know these alleged attacks on Chinese are all racially motivated? Could they not be just victims of crime just like all the non-Asians that are victims of crime in Australia? Could it be that students are easier and more attractive targets for criminals because they are carrying laptops, iphones and mobile phones, because they are living in areas that already have a high crime rate and because, just like tourists, they are move vulnerable in an unfamiliar environment? For example, there are a lot of Chinese living in the Sydney CBD, and no doubt some of them are victims of crime because the Sydney CBD can be a dangerous place after dark.

Also, how do you know there are more attacks on Chinese students vs. Indian students? Have you surveyed every Chinese and Indian student?

Look, no one is denying that attacks happen. The attacks are most likely commited by people who are already criminals or who have criminal tendencies. Despite what some anti-Australian racists might think about our convict past, that doesn't make the rest of Australian society both a) criminal, and b) racist.
