Racism is still pervasive in Australian society, but it’s alarming how many young people say they’re on the receiving end of it.

Chinese Australians report the highest levels of discrimination due to their race and cultural background, according to Mission Australia’s 2016 Youth Survey

The survey of teenagers, commissioned by the charity, covers 22,000 respondents between the ages of 15 to 19 years of age. 

It found 88.7 percent of Mandarin speakers reported discrimination, followed by speakers of Cantonese (80.6%) and Filipino/Tagalog (80.4%).
