A SHAMEFUL ADDICTION OF INCARCERATING MAORI MEN – NEW ZEALAND TODAY
All right, it’s “Fair Go” time. Let’s take an issue and see who benefits and who doesn’t?
Today while watching Te Karere News, I discovered that one of New Zealand’s favorite addictions is to lock Maori men up. Apparently politicans love to do this. So too, do New Zealanders?!
Watch the news video clip.
How can we change this insecure tendancy – a hang over from colonialist culture’s dark side that masks a greed addiction for unjust resources acquistion, while ensuring a fair deal for the descendants of New Zealand’s founding mothers and founding fathers?
Who benefits? And is it worth it to continue the bad habit of over-incarcerating Maori men in New Zealand? It’s a mental health issue imbalance of New Zealand governance.
In this news story, we see how the Tainui tribe with the support of New Zealand judges are committed to make a difference for Maori tribes to rise up and self determine social development of Maori tribes needs more. Love the story. Kia kaha. :)
