The entitlement and grievance attitude of Maori

via the tipline

It is often said that Maori have learned in the past 30 years or so an entitlement and a grievance mentality, that is now affecting them far more negatively that the last 150 years of “occupation”.

Witness Aroha Hathaway. Radio and TV personality…she is no poor bush Maori, she is a Ponsonby media snob with a TV and radio job….and this is her attitude.



Can you believe her attitude…mouthy, rude, obnoxious and grandiose…all the talk of “my people” and “Brown people”. And her equally racist mates pile in on the comments as well.

On top of that she gets it dead wrong with the details of the Police officer, who is himself part Samoan/European/Maori. I haven’t seen her apology forthcoming.

The racism is not from the Police, it s from people like Aroha Hathaway who somehow have got themselves into a permanent grievance mode.

This is the same behaviour and attitude that we see all the time on television from the likes of those Operation 8 morons, Tame Iti and his ilk.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
