The Maori Party dismisses Act Party claims of race-based privilege

1 min read


Maori Party Co-leader Te Ururoa Flavell says the Act leaders speech on race-based favouritism is divisive and designed to whip up anti-Maori sentiment.

Act Party Leader Jamie Whyte has said that what he calls race-based favouritism in education leads to Maori students having an easy ride and becoming less likely to make the most of their potential. He also compared Maori of today to the Aristocracy of France prior to the French revolution.

Mr Flavell says Weve heard all this rhetoric before. Our nation has come leaps and bounds over the last ten years in improving race relations and addressing the disparities between Maori and Pakeha so its sad that political parties feel the need to attract some attention by making outlandish claims.

Mr Flavell says the Maori Party has worked hard with the National-led Government to close the inequities between Maori and Pakeha.

Weve had to unpick almost two centuries of colonisation in this country. We like to think most fair-minded New Zealanders have recognised the need for change and recognition of tangata whenua.
