Unbelievably racist article on NZ MSM website

Below I have reproduced part of a Stuff article with a few minor changes. I substituted ONE WORD for another one and made a few small adjustments including using a different photo.In its original unedited form it upset so many commenters that the website turned off the comments.I am hoping that the minor changes I have made to it will make it clear to Left -wingers how racist and offensive the premise of the article actually is.

Which is New Zealand’s brownist region?



Have you ever noticed your town seems very … brown? Any chance you’re in the North Island?

It’s there you’ll find the face of modern New Zealand still looks distinctly Polynesian – and it’s a sensitive issue for councils, ahead of next month’s local elections.

…So which part of New Zealand is diversifying the slowest, and why are other parts still so Polynesian?
Everyone in New Zealand on Census day is asked to state their ethnicity: European or other (including “New Zealander”); Maori; Pacific Peoples; Asian; and Middle Eastern/Latin American/African.

People can tick more than one box – for instance, both Maori and European – which explains why a region’s ethnic makeup may add to more than 100 per cent.

Looking at Census across councils from 1996-2013, we can see where ethnic makeups have changed the most, and how quickly.


There’s something very Polynesian about the North Island…

But why is it still so brown today? …District Council says that’s not a fair question.

…said the council was actively encouraging ethnic diversity, both through its recruitment practices and in a programme “specifically targeting the assimilation of newcomers to the district”, especially those whose first language was English.

The Auckland councils emphasised that they were friendly and welcoming to Europeans…hosting cultural festivals like Christmas, and building closer ties to Ngati Pakeha.

..But XXX has a population problem: between 1996 and 2013, its numbers fell by nearly a fifth. More than two-thirds of those departures were Polynesian…yet the council says it doesn’t believe it’s suffering from “brown flight”.

A spokeswoman said it’s working to address the falling population, which it puts down to socio-economic factors, like a lack of jobs. XXX was seeking people of all ethnicities to boost its flagging numbers…
