I get this cowardly trick played on me a lot. It’s important we treat it with the contempt it deserves.
Sorry if my last post came through incomplete. I pressed the Publish button instead of Save.
All fixed now.
As per your statement “Just to be clear, as I said on the telly, I do not aspire to a Pakeha state.
We more or less had that when I was growing up. It was boring” – For a very long period of more than a century Maori were excluded and marginalised – would that be correct? And the problem is we now have a remarkably loud voice, a voice you dont like hearing and have never had to concern yourself with hearing. This comment actually confirms all I needed to know about your views. You dont like hearing our “voice”. You want a colour blind state, that makes no sense at all. We arent colour blind!
“For a very long period of more than a century Maori were
excluded and marginalised – would that be correct?”
Well, at least you admit that you don’t know the answer!
Even if you did, it would only be assertion. If you could
prove that, you would have doubtless done so.
gosh simple simon, how clever you are. Tell me Simple Simon when were Maori allowed into “State housing” in the same area as pakeha? 1970′s Simon – exclusion enough. 1865 – 1890 360 Acts of Parliament relating to Maori land only. 1898 Old Age Pension introduced in NZ. Maori names were removed from pension rolls or we were paid only two thirds of pakeha payment. You made our systems and structures illegal. Our language illegal. Talk about white empowerment.
Still mostly assertion. What has the Statute you mention got to do with things? I can’t check what you say, as you offer no proof, but ponder this:
A part-Maori and Pakeha married couple, living in their own home, debt-free. The part-Maori spouse also owns shares in a ‘block.’ When one dies, what happens? Depends which one.
If the part-Maori spouse dies, the surviving spouse cannot inherit the deceased spouse’s land shares.
If the Pakeha spouse dies, the surviving spouse can inherit the deceased spouse’s land.
Simply put, that’s racial privilege for part-Maori, that even defeats the Property (Relationship) Act.
And I know the foregoing from family/personal experience. Here’s the proof, with references so you can validate it.
Property (Relationships) Act 1976
The purpose of this Act is—
1M(c) to provide for a just division of the relationship property between the spouses or partners when their relationship ends by separation or death . . .
6 Maori land not affected
Nothing in this Act shall apply in respect of any Maori land within the meaning of Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993.
Does that look like statute-enforced racial bias defeating the objective of the “just division of the relationship property between the spouses when their relationship ends by death?” It sure does, to me.
1800′s law versus 1900′s law.
