  • STAG

    Gold.

  • Positan

    The most realistic depiction of “Treaty Principles” I’ve yet seen.

  • Monty’smate

    Wow- a brave cartoonist here telling it exactly as it is. Wait for the complaints and finger pointing to begin!!

  • Ghost

    Offended or unoffended, mildly bemused, indifferent, outraged, not matter what you take from this, Boomslang, I doff my hat, you have a way of capturing and expressing the unspoken.

    • Sailor Sam

      Wait for the complaints to start flowing into the squash player’s office.

  • Christie

    I adore Boomslang.

  • Dave

    I suggest selling signed copies, er, by internet order. The perpetually offended might be offensive if they saw them in a shopfront. The truth might hurt their feelings.

  • Andrew

    If ‘Boomslang’ is a white South African, this cartoon is not a good look considering their history with aboriginal and non white people and cultures of that country.

    And also a bit hypocritical calling one self ‘boomslang’, a name for tree snake from an also irrelevant language Afrikaans – which is compulsorily taught in schools.

    *rolls eyes*

    • dave

      And if she’s not?

      • sonovaMin

        I can assure you he/she is not and never was a south african of white descent.. That is not to say he/she is not of black descent.

      • Andrew

        It is, to quote myself, “a bit hypocritical calling one self ‘boomslang’, a name for tree snake from an also irrelevant language Afrikaans – which is compulsorily taught in schools.”

        Might as well be called ‘nakahi rakau’.

        • dave

          And your knee-jerk reaction that “he” must be a “white racist South African?” You may as well have ended your comment with a passive-aggressive “just saying”

          • Andrew

            I used gender neutral pronouns, and South African or not, this piece could be considered racist.

            I, as an expat South African, was totally fine learning Afrikaans and Zulu (both compulsory) – as they are an important part of the culture and identity of that country; as Maori is in New Zealand and should be also be compulsory.

  • Michelle

    Classic and right on target
    wonder if someone will be offended and complain?

  • manuka416

    This is just bait for Maori-haters
