Sikh council candidate victim of racist attack

 

November 2018

A Port Augusta City Council nominee says a social media video targeting his race is the first time he has experienced racism in the local community.

Sunny Singh, the owner of a taxi company and founder of the city’s Sikh church, was the subject of a video posted to a national trucking Facebook page.

The video shows a man in a truck directing racial slurs at a life-sized cut-out made from one of Mr Singh’s election placards, which is eventually run over by the truck.

Port Augusta mayor Sam Johnson said he was shocked by the violence and racism in the video.

"Absolutely appalled, gutted, outrageous — in today’s society, what would possess anyone to do that? Clearly a lot of effort was put into that," Mr Johnson said.

South Australian police are aware of the video and are investigating.
