Jobs for the bros under threat, Joris de Bres says something sensible

Looks like jobs for the bros is under threat in Ngati Porou with racist bully boy tactics going on over who should be the CEO:

Two non-Maori candidates have been short-listed for the position of Ngati Porou chief executive, sparking dissent within the tribe.

The selection process for a new chief executive was done through recruiting company Sheffield and produced five final candidates, three from Ngati Porou and two non-Maori.

Just the fact there is a candidate from outside Ngati Porou has been too much for Te Aitanga a Hauiti, who consider themselves an independent tribe but are closely affiliated with Ngati Porou through tradition and today are part of the corporate body, Te Runanganui O Ngati Porou (TRONP).

They reacted by withdrawing their support for the annual Pa Wars, a significant event on the tribal calendar, which was due to be held at Uawa.

“We would like to express our distaste that Te Runanganui O Ngati Porou are even considering . . . a CEO who is not of Ngati Porou descent, let alone Maori, despite interviewing some quality Ngati Porou applicants,” they said in a statement.

“Te Aitanga a Hauiti feel strongly that we cannot support TRONP in this matter and therefore we withdraw our support and will not host Pa Wars in Uawa in 2013.”

Can you imagine the fuss if this was Rotary, or the Northern Club and stipulated that only Grumpy Old White Men could have the CEO positions….the outrage from Maori would be huge.

Why is that Maori can be racist and not anyone else.  Read more »

Random Impertinent Questions

  1. I wonder what words the Human Rights Commission have they actually ruled incite racially disharmony in what circumstances.
  2. Is there a list? We know white motherfucker and house nigger are ok.
  3. Is house nigger now less offensive than cheeky darkie?
  4. I would think house nigger much more offensive but then I am neither a nigger nor a cheeky darkie so could someone who is either of those demographics please explain?
  5. If Paul Holmes had to apologise to a cheeky darkie then how come Hone Harawira doesn’t have to apologise to the house niggers?

Jock’s In Trouble Again

For telling the truth about Joris de Bore and his silly reports

Race Relations Commissioner Joris de Bres appears to regret white folk live longer and not enough are in jail.

A taxpayer-funded report called A Fair Go for All from the Human Rights Commission, of which Mr de Bres is part, says that despite Europeans making up 68% of the population, only 33% of those in prison are Europeans.

Which compares with 49% Maori and 11.3% Pacific Islanders – who make up only 15% and 7%, respectively, of the overall population.

Jock’s honesty and balls make him one of the only journalists who I think would manage to keep a decent blog.

Does Mr De Bres advocate the jailing of more white people to “balance” the high percentage of jailed Maori and Pacific Island criminals?

Does he want more Europeans to take up smoking, heavy drinking and eating rubbish food to enable the white death rate to catch up?

It certainly sounds like it.

Of course.  Everything percentage has to match the race statistics doesn’t it?

Another popular move from Crusher

It looks like Crusher may move on the Race Relations Conciliator position:

Moves are afoot to abolish the title of race relations commissioner, which minority groups and critics say could downgrade the position’s importance.

An amendment to the Human Rights Act introduced to Parliament late last year would abolish the title, although the duties would still be done by a human rights commissioner.

The race relations commissioner has been part of the Human Rights Commission since 2002. Current Commissioner Joris de Bres, whose term ends in September, says he will oppose the change when submissions are called for.

“I advised the minister at the time that I felt it would reduce the visibility of the office and also reduce its independence.”

At present, he said, the commissioner acted jointly with, but was not subject to, the chief human rights commissioner’s direction. “And that is specifically changed in the amendment.”

He believed the change would be seen by many minority communities “as a downgrading of the position”.

Whining to the Minister will be a waste of time. She brooks no nonsense with namby-pamby liberalism.

Most New Zealanders would be hard pressed to give a single reason to retain the office.

Huo’s a silly boy then?

Over on Red Alert Raymond Huo has lost the plot….again.

He adds one race relations report to an incident where a Chinese woman tried to bite some cops, then leaves a question mark lingering over alleged police brutality and discrimination.

What a pity poor Raymond didn’t read – or chose to leave out (since updated after I posted a comment that remains in moderation since 16:29) – the introduction to the report from the race relations commissioner which included this gem:

“Mr de Bres said that one of the organisations that has strongly focused on Asian recruitment over a recent years is the New Zealand Police. ‘That meant they were able to deal effectively with Asian communities after the Canterbury earthquake, as well as being accessible to Asian communities elsewhere. All public agencies should be doing the same.”

So, in fact the cops are a shining example, and not the ogres Huo seems to imply.

Sloppy or sneaky – you decide.

On another note Raymond doesn’t tell us what happens to cop biters in China…I suspect she would now be on the organ donor list or already donated a significant amount of her organs.

UPDATE: The post has now been deleted at Red Alert. Another case of not liking the message they get in the comments and so they simply pretend the post no longer exists.

Is Joris de Bres the most useless public servant in New Zealand

First Hone, now this.

In an email to Mr Rankin, Race Relations Commissioner Joris de Bres said although he deplored Professor Mutu’s suggestion that New Zealand should discriminate against white-skinned people from certain countries, the Bill of Rights Act allowed people to speak their mind.

Mr de Bres also quoted the Education Act, which, he said, respected the freedom of academic staff and students, within the law, to question and test perceived wisdom, to put forward new ideas and to state controversial or unpopular opinions.

Professor Mutu, who is also head of the Department of Maori Studies at the University of Auckland, claimed Maori were generally supportive of

Or is the rule if you are Maori you can say what you like and get away with it?

Imagine if an academic had used academic freedom to say we should not allow jews, arabs, afghans or eskimo in because they didn’t play rugby. Joris would have had kittens.

So fatties are off the mocking list too now

Good grief our country is pathetic. Michael Laws is now in the firing line for suggesting that the Governor-General, Sir Sir Anand Satyanand is a fatty who found and  never left the buffet table. Hell iI’ve said worse about Pork Chop.

Are Indian’s the new poofs? Seeing outrage in the slightest of jokes even if they aren’t racist, as is the case with Michael Laws.

Radio host Michael Laws has come under fire for calling Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanand a “large, fat man” who has “never left” the buffet table.

His bosses at RadioLive have also been slammed – for saying they are comfortable with the remarks.

At least one complaint from a high-profile sporting personality has been laid with the Race Relations Commissioner, Joris de Bres.

De Bres and media commentator Brian Edwards said they were appalled by the crass comments, which lacked good taste and decency.

Where was Joris de Bres after Honest Hone ‘s racist rants? Oh that’s right, Honest Hone’s calling European New Zealanders “white motherfuckers” of “puritanical bullshit” for expecting him to follow the rules in an email exchange was “within his rights“.

The remarks were made by Laws on Monday morning, following the media attention around Paul Henry’s much-reported comments that same day.

Laws laid into Satyanand, saying he was an “unusual-shaped man” who reminded him of the impossibly obese Monty Python character Mr Creosote.

He also likened him to a British actor who played the Agatha Christie creation Hercule Poirot on UK television.

“That reminds me of Anand Satyanand, but Anand Satyanand could never move that quickly. He is a very large, fat man,” he said.

“I don’t know why but just on an Indian it seems slightly incongruous.

“I mean, we don’t all expect Indians to be begging on the streets of New Delhi, but it’s like Anand discovered the buffet table at, like, 20 and he’s never really left it.”

Good grief, I said exactly the same thing about Pork Chop. This country has become overly sensitive, but it is only going to get worse, especially in Auckland with the win of Len Brown.

There is something seriously wrong that jokes are not allowed to be told. It is pretty hard to find any jokes that don’t offend someone in the slightest way.
