A Canberra student has made calls for tolerance after a racist tirade was made against him during his walk to the ANU.
Atem Atem was shocked when a man yelling 'Darkie Immigrant' told him to go back where he came from during a five-minute racist tirade beside Lake Burley Griffin.
The PHD student was shocked when bystanders didn't intervene during the man's abusive behaviour, prompting him to question whether the ACT community had grown complacent about racism.
Mr Atem said if he could send a message to the man it is that we are all human.
