Why the demands will continue

During New Zealand’s Waitaingi Day celebrations this week there was a classic illustration of why the liberal left continues to pressure whites in western countries into giving more resources to other races.

The nation’s race-relation conciliator Jores de Bres used the opportunity to complain that Pakeha (a Maori term for European New Zealanders) were continuing to resist moves to give “special treatment” to Maori. Mr de Bres argued this was unreasonable because Maori were, on average, economically worse off than whites. This is in spite of numerous land settlements and affirmation action opportunities awarded to Maori since the mid 1980s.

Thus inequality of outcome is the reason why the left continues to complain about white racism in developed countries like New Zealand. Providing equality of opportunity, plus reparations for colonisation and cultural subsidies (such as funding for indigenous languages) is not considered good enough.  As with the middle class in a communist society, whites in a liberal society must continue to make sacrifices to non-whites, until their incomes are, on average the same as the lowest performing ethnicities.

    Yes, I also notice the whole “child poverty” issue is getting a lot of attention lately in NZ. Particularly, following the appalling Bryan Bruce documentary that screened shortly before Christmas last year.

    Most of the children they are referring to are from non-white families and are another way to demand greater welfare payments from the middle class.

    In terms of de Bres’ article, I suspect he would like to erect the kind of billboards that Lawrence Auster discusses here.
