Viral videos of African American men being denied entry to their apartment buildings in the United States go viral almost every other day. But it’s not isolated to the U.S. alone. Even in Australian strata properties racism is also a problem. In Australia’s case, Asians are the ones being discriminated against.
This article from Smarter Communities, a strata lifestyle blog, gives us the cold hard facts through statistics and numbers of how racism is alive and well in the Land Down Under. “Almost six in ten (59%) Asia-born participants in our study experienced racism in accessing housing. This compares to only 19% of non-Asian-born participants,” reads the piece.
It’s a shameful problem but a problem that can be fixed. We at Vertical Living Magazine hope that we can be part of the solution by shining some light on it. If you wish to know more about racism in strata living, just click on the link below for the full article.
