Africans Boycott Macquarie University over Racist Remarks

African students in Australia have decided to stage a boycott of Sydney’s Macquarie University over racist remarks by Associate Professor Andrew Fraser. The professor claimed that refugees from Sub-Saharan Africa were a high crime risk because they had low IQs and high testosterone levels.

The comments have led to increasing harassment of innocent Sudanese Students in places like Toowoomba, according to The Australian newspaper report.

Consequently, the students have called on the university to discipline its professor and curb racism.
