he’s a broken man
EXACTLY a really great comment, maori are undermined at every point by pakeha regulation attempting to maintain a racially based underclass
oh my god katie I missed you having a social justice moment while I was at school holy shit
i got about a million followers all from nz and about a million messages trying to justify institutionalised racism smh it was hardcore
to support families and when I call him out he just says “well it’s true and someone’s gotta say it.” He also thinks that the extra opportunities that are offered to Maori children and teens are “a waste of government money”. I live in Porirua so there’s a large Maori and Pacific Island population and more often than not at the mall, the security guards will follow around the Maori kids, not the pakeha kids even if they’re being more disruptive. I’ve seen a few police be downright racist albeit subtly, towards Polynesian and Maori people, especially in Wellington city near the bars and stuff. Going into clubs, my friends who are Polynesian get I.D.’d more or even kicked out because of “suspicious behaviour” or “disruptiveness” when they’ve done nothing. There’s no where near the extent of what’s happening in Ferguson, but racism still exist in NZ. Maori people are discriminated against, they were conned out of their land and forced into British culture and regulation.
exactly, people who ignore the racism in nz are the ones who benefit from it. thank you for this message!
Me: *skin breaks out*
Me @ god: ILL SEE YOU IN COURT
Omg i woke up with sooo many messages please…
