Storm in a Teacup?

Maori SmokesNZHerald reports this morning about a brand of cigarettes called "Maori Mix". As you’d expect Maori leaders and health advocates are calling this an outrage.

But it seems like a bit of a storm in a teacup to me. After all, the cigarettes are being sold in Israel, not New Zealand!

If a european New Zealander came out and complained about cigarettes being called "European Mix" or "English mix" what would everyone say? "What an idiot, tell him to get over it!"

It’s all different if it is anything Maori though…
