I hear what you say and being a part of it for family reasons I understand it.Reti and Bridges would not be picked as the same species though hey...if you played Sesame street one of these things is not like the other....to say an international audience and had a board full of people who look like Soimon and Seymour and one Reti.....
Truth time. We are not ready for Obama yet, we are too young of a colony.
Btw i love white people, I thought I needed to say that lol some of my closest family are white people....I love them more than some Maoris in my clan...I am not meaning to create a race thing here...just saying how it is from the minority point of view which I fully realize super upsets the mainstream...even though my reality is shared by a million people of colour in this country.
You should hear what the other half have to say sometimes, because whatever you have in your head...ain’t what is in a million other peoples daily reminders of being different.....and we don't need to hear the explanations of why we are wrong...why racism exists in every other country in the world but somehow magically not in ours.....even though Nada Glavish was fired from telecom for saying Kiaora. Leane Malcom received death threats for saying Kiaora,. Hine Wehimohi got death threats for singing the anthem in Maori.
Nothing to see here....It seems my race card has turned into a full deck in my life.
But please don't cast all of us into the pit.
