DO WE NEED A NEW MAORI UPRISING? (Opinion0
Maori are 380% more likely to be convicted of a crime and 200% more likely to die from heart disease and suicide. Maori are paid 18% less and 34% leave school without a qualification. Maori die earlier and suffer more. It's not fair
No, it's beyond 'not fair' it is a morally reprehensible obscenity in a country that pretends that it is egalitarian.
I believe that the majority of white New Zealanders live in a constant state of wilful ignorance when it comes to racism in this country. The facts of how racist our system really is are glaring in the statistical outcomes, but still we have the Don Brash's of this country screaming Maori privilege.
I believe we need to be confronted by the racism of our country by a new Maori uprising.
The horror of those statistics of failure on the front cover of MANA magazine won't change of we are wait for white NZ to acknowledge them.
Imagine if one day a month, every month, Maori from across New Zealand went on strike and marched in the main streets demanding a response to the racism of our country.
White NZ won't change unless it is forced to change. The fact it took 136 years to apologise for Parihaka is proof positive of that......

Maori are 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% more likely to benefit from a race based privilege and 200% more likely to reject their own health by smoking, not execrising and eating takeaways, despite repeated warnings that have cost the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. Maori are paid 18% less because they reject education for the benefit, and 34% leave school without a qualification for the same reason. Maori die earlier and suffer more because they do not take care of themselves and are happy to live on welfare instead of contributing to NZ's society. They are takers, not contributors. Damn right it's not fair to the rest of us.
