Do not talk about racism (26 Jul, 2021)

Postby aardvark_admin » Mon Jul 26, 2021 7:40 am

Have we become the very thing we rallied against so strongly in the 1980s -- a nation where race determines privilege?

Has New Zealand embraced the teachings and practices of apartheid?

What has happened over the past 50 years since I arrived here to produce such race-based discord within the population and how, in the third decade of the 21st century, can we accept things such as sports teams based solely on race?

What ever happened to the members of those Iwi whose chiefs did not sign The Treaty?

Is there a way forward from the situation today where those who had no say or role in the wrongs of the past are held to account and made to pay penance and compensation for those wrongs?

Can't we all just be friends and move forward in unity as the people of a single nation?

Too much to ask?

The conspiracy theory that goes along with this is that of the creation of a society whereby the people don't fight authority. In the US, many of the immigrants have come from societies where this is the case. The white incumbants are used being able to pick their leaders and make sure they are held accountable. Not so with the immigrants - they take the jobs, pay the taxes and occupy empty homes. They don't care about the government.
That is a whopper of a theory. I hope it's not true.

For me, the greatest irony is that those who seek racially-based privileges abuse those who seek equality, calling them racists.

the lesbian liar at least had a reason for it as her girlfriend partner is / was a maori
