Surprised there is still many people left in NZ to cause a rukus as most of them have jumped the Tasman to Australia's (and in particular Queensland) generous welfare handouts, so I understand

we here don't hear much about NZ and it's settlers. This story is sad, and you can see the one point of view of it. I was hoping that someone from NZ would like to share their thoughts about it, or whoever lived there. I was always thinking of NZ as a paradise kind of land.

this while true has a very real bias,
we in new zealand accept all pacific nations and customs,
except violence,
we do have an unaceptable level of violence,
greedy banking cartels have made us poor and this does not help with the violence

I do agree, we have a very serious violence problem in new zealand especially towards children. Everyone does just seem to just turn a blind eye in a way. In my opinion no real serious actions have been taken to help curb this either.

But as for that article - It did highlight some serious issues here in NZ but made some very strong generalizations and it is that kind of talk that does not help the racial issues we have here.

As for the whole "big tourist city" and small HOON town comment - that is bullsh*t. Yes there are some small towns that are quite bad - but in general most people from these towns are probably friendlier than any bloody aucklander.

And HOON? Ha, where the hell did he get this term from?

As a Kiwi, this comes as no surprise to me...




"But, more importantly, discussing these problems makes New Zealanders feel queasy because it inevitably draws you into race issues. Not all hoons are Maori, and not all Maori are hoons. Far from it. But there is a correlation. Consider just these facts. Maori are 15 per cent of the population, but 50 per cent of the prison population. Forty per cent of Maori children grow up in fatherless homes, compared with 17 per cent of whites. A third of Maori boys leave school with no qualification, compared with 13 per cent of white boys. The child murder rate is 1.5 per 100,000 among Maori, compared with 0.7 among whites. Maori life expectancy is seven years less than that of whites."


I think the problems are isolated more so in our big cities, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and outside of those areas you'll meet really good kind hearted, easygoing people.

Although the Maori are purportedly one of the most well treated among ethnic tribes of the world who have been colonized, they haven't coped well and seem to carry a chip on their shoulders, which I sympathise with but unfortunately it seems to manifest as violence, that coupled with the fact we have alot of other pacific island people coming here integrating into the society and adding to the mix seems to cause a certain insult to their injury.

In saying that, violence is no excuse but as a young nation (200 years) we are all still learning how to get along and work together.
As many of you know rugby is the nations main sport and is a very physical game with lots of body contact and IMO ferments alot of agression and competativness amongst the different sides and a big part of that rugby culture is drinking and therein lies alot of the problem.

Just my 2 cents worth.

maybe baby It don't matter in the end.
I just wish that we were able to discuss important issues on this web, the one's that are being 'silenced", you know what i mean? I really thought this is THE PLACE where everyone can share their honest opinions about everything. But i was wrong. Most of my posts are being imediately removed. Oh well
