The Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon has written to our political parties urging them to lay off racism in the coming election campaign.
His letter has been joyfully spread by its recipients around the capital and for all I know, elsewhere.
Inexplicably half of it is in maori, God knows why as to the best of my knowledge none of our Party leaders speak it.
Anyway, frankly it’s overdue, especially with Jacinda. On the occasions I’ve met her I’ve been shocked by her vicious attacks on Paraguayans in particular, but also Bulgarians. Plainly she’s had a bad experience with both.
The question is whether Meng Foon will act on this, or do Bulgarian and Paraguayans being white not count?
Personally, I don’t mind Jacinda’s rubbishing Bulgarians but I do object to her attacks on Paraguayans for a damn good reason.
That is the Guarani indigenous girls are all stunners and therefore can do no wrong in my eyes.
